Gilbertine Renewal Nuns will wear this habit.

The nuns' habit for the Gilbertines will be all black, to include the wimple, guimpe, and cuculla, as per the constitutions.  A plain rope cincture will bind the tunic.  Footwear will be according to the needs of the nuns.

Warmer climates will require modification.  The community will decide specifics when the time comes.

The image shows the "tippet" worn around the head in winter, and the great cloak, which was lined with lambskins.
