In the Pennines the wind blows fiercely all year round, leaving me windswept and crazy haired every day when I walk my daughter, Billie Jo, to school. In between this, meetings, dyeing yarn and knitting group I discovered I needed something versatile to keep me warm and looking stylish. This snood was designed for the walker, the traveller and the commuter – anyone who is going anywhere and needs the protection of a hat and scarf, but not the bulk.
