In Praise of the Snood

I was a latecomer to the joys cashmere snoods but rapidly became a true convert to this delightful accessory. Variously named neck warmer, infinity scarf and collar, the snood is clever, versatile and a dream to wear.

Its greatest advantage is that, once on, it stays in place, an attribute not always shared by the more traditional scarf. It perfectly marries fashion with function to keep you warm and chic, indoors and out.

We have championed the benefits of the snood for some years and have always opted for cashmere as our fabric of choice. Here are a few of our favourite styles.

 

The Up Close Neck Warmer

Luxuriously soft and superbly warm these two tone snoods are designed for a snug fit to keep you really cosy indoors or out. Made by linking two contrasting snoods together to form a two tone neck warmer they are crafted in Italy from the very best quality 100% cashmere. Versatile, they can also be worn as a hood by pulling one of the individual snoods over the head.

 

 

The Double Size Snood

Knitted from 100% downy soft Italian cashmere these large cashmere snoods can be worn singly as a long slouchy snood, or doubled as an extra warm neck warmer and collar. Loop them over sweaters and jackets to stay cosy and ultra warm in winter and when really cold pull them up over your head.

 

 

The Double Sided Twist Snood

Ultra soft and supremely warm these innovative 100% cashmere snoods are knitted in an asymmetrical design on the diagonal. Double sided and double length for extra volume and extra warmth they are twisted to give an elegant drape. Wear them casually long or double looped.

 

 

The Cashmere and Satin Snood

Exquisite, beautiful and utterly luxurious, these double faced generously sized snoods are stunning accessories which elevate classic outfits to pure elegance. Double faced with the softest 100% cashmere on one side and a contrasting satin silk reverse, they double wrap as luxurious neck warmers to show both fabrics in equal measure forming a softly draped snood. They look just as good worn long.

 

 

The Cashmere Collar

Innovative and luxurious these exquisitely soft and chic cashmere collars will transform winter coats and jackets. Expertly made from 100% cashmere they have two pleated layers, designed to fall in flattering and gentle folds. The double layer effect is enhanced by the underside being slightly longer and deeper that the outer side. Wear as a snood, a scarf or collar to keep warm and stylish. They are finished with a cute buttons and fastened with a press stud.
