The scapular is a tabard-like apron that may be worn over the top of the Tunic when working. It should be of the same naturally-coloured wool as the habit. The practice of wearing a scapular in a different colour to the habit developed from the twelfth century onwards, to distinguish the different orders of monks which only began to develop following the Norman Conquest.

The scapular should be of shoulder width (around 45 cm), with no side seam. There should be a simple slit opening for the head and hood. The Scapular should be of knee to mid calf in length and be equal both front and back.
