Viking Dress "Astrid the Wolfspeaker"
Woolen Easrly Middle Ages Viking Dress
It’s always a good day when you’re Astrid Wolfspeaker: important enough to have a bodyguard, but young enough to enjoy travel beyond your homeland without the burden of diplomatic responsibility. There’s always a spring in your step, the winter sun on your shoulders, and a tune to carry you from one longhouse to the next.
“Astrid the Wolfspeaker” is a new spin on our bestselling Viking collections – or should we say a new season! For the first time, we are offering woolen dresses and accessories to keep you warm in the winter without only relying on cloaks or coats (though we have those, too!). These items are finely crafted, based on our tried-and-tested Viking-inspired designs, and ready to accompany you through the winter.
This classic T-tunic style dress has a keyhole neckline which makes it easy to put on, long sleeves to keep you warm and a long skirt. The design includes gores to add extra fabric, creating a voluminous skirt that swishes as you walk. The sleeves are made with lots of room under the arms and a tapered fit at the cuff, which allows for lots of movement around your shoulders.
Our “Astrid” tunic features a new trim, designed in-house by our team of specialty artists. Taking inspiration from Norse art and animals, our artists have created a pattern featuring wolves that twist their way through knotwork. The wolf trim can be found at the bottom hem and at the sleeves, with regular Viking knotwork along the neckline. The trim is framed at the bottom and sleeves by 4cm of contrasting linen, 1cm of linen at the neckline, and woolen cord between each layer.
Technically, this is a feat of sewing. All of the seams are felled flat without exposed overlocking or raw edge, and the trim is sewn in such a way that it is used to perfectly hide and protect any exposed seams or overlocking at the hems. We made the tunic from the ideal winter material: wool. It’s a lovely thinner garment wool, made especially for dresses and tunics to allow for drape and movement. Wool is not only warm, but it’s also breathable and dries quickly.
This garment is unlined, and we recommend wearing a chemise or undertunic in order to extend your wear between washes and protect the material from body odor.
