Cap with long ties that tie around the head.

Unmarried women wore their hair down to attract a mate, but a good wife always wore here hair up or tucked into a cap.
This practice protected the hair from tangles, dirt and smoke. It is also a great way for re-enactors to hide modern hair styles or just to cover a 'bad hair day'. This cute cap has long ties on each side that are worn wrapped around the head like a turban. White is made of broadcloth, colors and natural are made of crinkle cotton. One size fits all.

    Goodwives Hat

    I love this hat. It is perfect for medieval/renaissance costumes. It is easy to put on and feels secure.

    Is my head too big or is the cap too small?

    I couldn't tell- all I know is the darn thing wouldn't fit on my head.

    It is made out of nice cotton and the ties are very long, but the shape was not at all flexible and it just wouldn't right on my head (kept popping off). If I didn't get this hat super dirty during my event I would try to return it.

    The style is so adorable, it's just too bad my head is (apparently) giant.
