Herjolfsnes 37

This is a man's gown made from a dark brown 2/2 twill which was evenly woven from tightly spun wool. It has a very gradual and large increase in size from the shoulders and down to the hem and would have been quite loose-fitting. Fitchets show that it was an overgarment. The armhole edges are sewn down, which indicates that there were no sleeves.
