Snoods offer fashion, warmth and all year-round function. No, we’re not talking turkey necks, though they are also bright and colourful, we’re referring to the snood scarf that is a fashion and athletic accessory.
Snoods were originally known as a hair net used to keep loose hair away from the face. Popular throughout the Middle Ages and Renaissance, these snoods were adorned with beads, pearls and precious dainty trimmings, quickly becoming a staple in women’s wardrobes. In the 1940s, knitted snoods emerged as a helpful accessory for women supporting the war effort, protecting hair from heavy machinery and then accessorised to be used for evening wear.
The snood style evolved to take on a few extra names: neck warmer, gaiter, and snood scarf. This tubular scarf can also be pulled up to protect the face, neck, and ears from cold weather, wind and rain. Today, a snood is known for being a staple for winter and a trusty companion for protection during any outdoor activities.
But they’re not just useful in winter, snoods are also incredibly helpful in the warmer months. Whether you’re out for a morning jog and trying to keep the flies out of your mouth or cycling down the road and want to block the dust from your face, snoods can protect you from (almost) anything.
They also double up as excellent face coverings and ours are ideal for public transport. Lightweight and comfortable to wear, the washable and moisture repellent fabric is soft and stretchy, making it the perfect accessory to help keep you safe. With a big area to print on, our snoods can be personalised with your company logo, so you can raise brand awareness whilst on the move!
