The Snood is an East Coast thing that we are bringing to the Midwest. It is a cowl neck infinity scarf, but when the weather hits it can be worn up high to cover your mouth or pulled up as a hood to cover your ears. So warm and cozy! It has a real suede detail laced down the side. 45% Acrylic, 45% Wool, 2% Nylon, 8% Suede. It is machine washable on cold, in a lingerie bag. Lay flat to dry.
