The Vikings often crafted their clothing from wool, a material which helped to protect them from frigid winters and could be handmade with relative ease. Norsemen often wore long tunics and Viking trousers, which were held up by a belt or sash. In cold weather, warriors added a fur cloak or long-sleeved vest to this ensemble. Many hooded cloaks fastened at the shoulder with a brooch or a pin. For foot protection, Viking raiders often wore leather shoes. Viking ladies wore similar clothing to men, often substituting a long chemise with a Nordic overdress in place of a tunic. Capes, shawls, and handkerchiefs were also worn by women.
