Biretta and Zucchetto in Rosé


Biretta in Rosé

Biretta made out of rosé watered fabric with 3 blades (horns, wings) and a rosé pompon
This style of biretta was made upon a special request to correspond with the rosé paraments worn on Gaudete and Laetare
[N.B. The color rosé for a biretta is not according the rules of  the Roman Catholic Church.]

Informative elaboration about the color rosé by Br. Hyacinth Marie Cordell, OP you can find here.
