Description

Please message me directly before purchasing. intriguingd [!at] gmail.com

I have been making Winingas for 15 yrs.
This listing is for 1 PAIR of leg wraps or 1 pair of arm wraps

Pls. check my other listings for more colours of leg wraps.

Pictures 2,3 and 4 are small herringbone pure wool from Dorr Mills, made in the USA.

Approx. 4 inches wide and 12 ft in length. I use a special stitch that makes my wraps look hand stitched and they will not fray or fall apart. I taper the ends of my wraps slightly so that they are easy to tuck in. (Not so much fabric).

Arm wraps are approx. 6 ft in length and 3 inches in width.

The brown and beige herringbone are pure woven wool. They can be worn either side, herringbone one solid brown. It is like having 2 pairs for price of one. Great value.

Pls see my other listing for more colours of leg and arm wraps.

NEW COLORS - will be added so CHECK BACK often because I list new wraps each week.

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 measured
about 3.5 inches wide and may have been as long as 9 ft in length.
There is also documentation that the wraps were cut in strips from wide pieces of fabric.


Thank you!

I couldn't leave a review until these winingas had been gifted for Christmas, but he loves them! He has big calves, and these are the perfect length to wind properly.
