Calf wraps (also known as leg wraps or puttees) were an integral part of Germanic clothing. They were wrapped over the pants, from the foot to below the knee. Thus, they served as a substitute for socks and not only warmed, but at the same time protected the legs from injury. Numerous fragments of calf wraps have been found in Haithabu.
