COLD? This wonderful hand crafted sontag is perfect for keeping your upper body warm. This garment is appropriate for Civil War reenactments as well as 1800’s events such as Dickens or Christmas Fairs or wagon train (Prairie). It would also be a good item for workers or volunteers at historical sites. There are many names for this crocheted garment from the basic: sontag, spencer, habit shirt, and crossover shawl to the more whimsical; bosom friend or heart-warmer.

This pretty grape purple sontag is made with 100% wool. The amethyst color is described as a rich blue violet color. A lavish jewel tone, Amethyst is a purple lovers dream. The front sections are wrapped around the body and attach to the back with two buttons. Our pretty cream shell edging softens the look. This sontag is sized as a regular/ large (modern size 12 -18).

We welcome any questions you may have about the sontag or its construction methods. Not your size or color choice! We can make a similar item in your choice of size and colors. Please contact us.
