Look what arrived in the mail!

Today my recently purchased snoods arrived.
These hand knit hair nets were all the rage in the 40s when curls needed to be protected from weather and wind, or unsightly straight hair hidden away for the day. They’re all in all a very versatile, period correct and over-all fun accessory, and will save you a lot of time! Just pin your hair up in a little pompadour, bouffant or victory roll in front, and pin your snood over the hair in the back! Very vintage, very practical, and very stylish.

I got these from Ebay, and you should be able to find similar ones simply by googling ‘hand crocheted vintage snood’ or something similar. I purchased several colours to be able to mix and match with my outfits. A gray or brown to match a suit, or a red to spark things up a little. They are available in all sorts of patterns. Flowers, diamonds and grids are popular. Mine are a grid.
