This is a full-torso penitential hair shirt that is worn underneath a shirt or a priest’s cassock. The one pictured here was commissioned for a Traditional Catholic Priest and will be worn under his cassock. However, this can be worn by anyone looking for a more extreme form of penance than can be offered by the “scapular” style penitential garments shown in this store.
The hair shirt takes approximately 25 hours to make, hence the cost. It can be embellished with bead work or left plain. It ties at the sides, and these ties can be lengthened upon request, to accommodate a larger size. The size depicted here is a men’s large but again, the size can be increased or decreased upon request.
