Tippet: An Explanation

Tippet: For those, like me, who have no idea what a tippet is, the Shorter Oxford English Dictionary gives the following guidance:

  • A long narrow strip of cloth or hanging part of dress, either attached to and forming part of the hood, head-dress or sleeve, or loose, as a scarf or the like

  • A garment, usually of fur or wool, covering the shoulders, or the neck and shoulders; a cape or short cloak

  • A band of silk or other material worn round the neck, with the two ends pendent from the shoulders in front

  • A hangman’s rope
