The hoodless cowl is a mantle that hangs down over the shoulders and chest, rather like a period-poncho. It protects against inclement weather as it embellishes the look of any outfit. As with the scapular, the clergy often changed cowl-color to reflect the colors of the liturgical year: green for "Ordinary time," white for High Holy Days, etc.
Cowl with a hood is available in a variety of colors.
Made from medium weight cotton or cotton blend fabric.
Satin lining is available.
