On the North Estonian scarf, Maarja sleeve pattern, that is notable for its peculiarity, is used. The yarn that was used was woollen, cotton or silk. Often black and combination of two or three colours was used. The black patterns on the sleeves were silk for the rich and sown for the poor people.Wrap was being worn lengthways on one’s back; the corners were secured on the breast with a brooch or yarn. The tradition of wearing wraps remained until the beginning of the 19th
century.
