years. They are tubes of linen in a slightly thick weave (perhaps table
napkin weight; less than cotton denim) turned inside out. I pin it
firmly but not tightly to the forehead band.
It does muffle my hearing very slightly, but nothing compared to cauls!
If I wear a wimple, I pin that to the chin band, and then put the veil
on over everything in the usual manner.
(If people haven't seen my photo essay about wearing veils, you might
find it useful: http://www.virtue.to/articles/veils.html -- lots of
medieval and modern pictures.)
