This Gothic wool hood (chaperon) is lined with soft cotton flannel for comfort on those cold winter days. You can wear the hood down and still protect the shoulders and neck from chilly breezes. This is the early version of the style of hood where the vertical face opening can be rolled down and placed horizontally over the head for the fashionable cockscomb headwear. One size fits all.
Available Color Combinations:
Black Wool/Burgundy Flannel Lining
Black Wool/Charcoal Gray Flannel Lining
Burgundy Wool/Charcoal Gray Flannel Lining
Green Wool/Black Flannel Lining

HISTORY: The chaperon began before 1200 as a hood with a short cape (patte), put on by pulling over the head, or fastening at the front. The hood could be pulled off the head to hang behind, leaving the short cape round the neck and shoulders. The edge of the cape was often trimmed, cut or scalloped for decorative effect. There were wool ones, used in cold weather, and lighter ones for summer. In this form it continued through to the end of the Middle Ages, worn by the lower classes, often by women as well as men, and especially in Northern Europe. The hood was loose at the back, and sometimes ended in a tail that came to a point, called a liripipe in English or a cornette in French.
About 1300 the chaperon began to be worn by putting the hole intended for the face over the top of the head instead; perhaps in hot weather. This left the cornette tail and the cape or patte, hanging loose from the top of the head. The cape part was now called a cockscomb. This became fashionable, and chaperons began to be made to be worn in this style. It was especially fashionable in mid-15th century when it had developed into a padded roll with the liripipe and cockscomb sewn on separately. By the end of the 15th century it was out of fashion and had returned to its utilitarian status.
