A soft cotton cap (also known as a Coif or an Arming Cap) to keep hair neat and your head warm. 

In period, these were worn by all, from children to powerful men. Fighters wore the Biggen inside their helmets and under chain mail. On really hot days, workmen would rinse out their biggens and wear them wet to help them cool off. 


In period paintings, men usually wore them untied while women and children were pictured wearing them tied. Albrecht Druer pictured many figues wearing the Biggen under fancy hats. Made from 100% cotton. Colors: white, black, or natural. Natural takes dye easily. One size.
