Whitethorn's kit is a distinctive blue dress, coupled with a red apron and 'mill-girl' style cap. The beautiful lace collars on the dresses are hand made by one of the dancers, Christine. We wear black tights/stockings, black bar clogs, white hankies, beads, and bells on our wrists and feet.
Band kit for the men consists of corduroy trousers, a waistcoat, striped shirt and flat cap. All our kit is meant to represent the style of dress appropriate to the period when most of our dances were collected.
