Craftsmen designed period cloaks as a protective gear from the elements using a large rectangular woolen piece. Graves and depictions from that era indicate that people pinned the cloaks on the right shoulder, leaving the right arm free, while they could throw the hanging left side over the left shoulder to release the left arm. The length of the Viking cloaks ranged between the knee and the ankle.
