3 metres per leg is a minimum to properly wrap your leg wraps, so a total length of 6m (7m or 8m if you have big calves).
Example: If you enter "6" as quantity, you'll receive 6 metres of leg wraps.

Leg wraps are an indispensable accessory of the civil and military costume over a very long period since antiquity until 12th century.

The colour of these medieval leg wraps comes from a vegetable dye made in cauldrons. The vegetable dye gives unique shades identical to those worn in the Middle Ages.

Irregularities of tone are present because of a hand-made craft work.

Co-ordinate the colour of your leg wraps with your tunics.

A screen cannot reproduce the real colours, so the colours you see in the picture gives only an approximation of the real colours.

 

To protect your colours :

Hand Wash at temperature of 40°C maximum.

Never use washing powders! Only use a soft liquid soap for delicate/wool items.

Dry away from direct sunlight.
