I've been reading The Hobbit and it inspired me to make a fanart of the dwarves as described in the book. I noticed they all have hoods. Hoods they can hang up on a hook, or take off and wave at their feet when they bow, and stuff like that. What are they? Does Tolkien mean a cowl? Or a cap like the ones the dwarves in the Snow White movie wear? And I thought hoods in my book were confusing.
