I make my wraps 12 to 13 feet in length per leg and approx. 4 inches wide and surged tightly so they do not unravel and look like they have been hand stitched tightly and not machine done.

Known in Old Norse as vindingr, winingas or vaf-spjôrr

The wraps made of two long narrow strips of cloth, typically
wool, and bright colors, which were wound around the leg and
foot in the same direction for both legs. By starting at the foot or
ankle and wrapping upwards. The strip was fastened at the top by
tucking in, no clips or fasteners are needed, but they were used.
Clothing hooks not pins were found on skeletons just below the
knee so it is safe to say that these hooks were to hold up some
type of clothing, eg legwraps.

In period the fabric may have been woven to the correct
dimensions on a small scale regular loom. The strips measure
about 3.5 inches wide and may be as long as 9 ft in length.
There is also documentation that the wraps were cut in strips from wide pieces of fabric.

If you are ordering more than 2 pairs pls contact me as the shipping prices may change because of the size of the box.

Thank you!
