Dag is a name often used in modern times to describe a dangling piece of fabric or trim. For example the edge of the sleeves of a houpelande may be dagged, that is cut into elaborate shapes, as a form of decoration. Dags may be shaped as simple circles, leaf shapes, crenulated or in a variety of other shapes. Fulled or felted wool lends itself best to dagging, as the dags prduced will not fray. Other gaments such as garters, pouches, and hoods were also dagged at specific historical times, especially in the 14th century.
