Berka Shell Fancy Snood in Cotton

$30.00




This is a newer pattern I call Berka Shells. You may choose your color and length at time of purchase. The pictures shown are for the standard 8 inch length. You may now choose 10 or 12" Lengths as well. These are made to order so please allow 2 to 3 weeks for delivery when you place your order. The ones pictured are Royal Blue and Sage Green.

It does come complete with instructions on how to put it on and care for your snood. This snood is finished with an adjustable elastic cord which allows the snood to be tied to fit each individual person. This allows for a better fit than those with a basic elastic band. This is a great addition to your Civil War, Medieval, Renaissance or SCA garb but can also be worn just cause it looks good. Snoods are making a come back and are wonderful for bad hair days. You just put your hair in the snood and go. No muss, no fuss. The elastic cord is woven into the last row so that it is barely visible while wearing. Ladies with fine hair may find they need to add a couple of hair pins or comb to help it stay.

I have been making snoods since 1996 and have built a reputation over the years for quality work that will last you for years. I still wear my original two snoods that I made back then. The elastic cord does wear out eventually but it is very easy to replace (It was my son's job when he was little when he wanted to help Mom and is a simple in and out weave) and can be found at most fabric shops for less than $2.

I take PayPal, personal checks, money orders or any of the four major credit cards as payment. Shipping and handling includes insurance. See my Etsy shop for more snood styles available. I will combine items to save you shipping if you buy more than one provided you make ONE payment for all items. Please email me for a final total if you purchase more than one before making payment to get the maximum shipping savings.

Frequently Asked Questions

Custom and personalized orders

I do accept requests for custom orders. Send me a message and I can create a listing for any special order.

Do I sell patterns?

No, I do not sell my patterns. They are copyrighted and this is how I make my living so they are not for sale.

Are you the Lady who made the snoods seen on the TV show Charmed?

Yes, I made the snoods worn by Alyssa Milano on Charmed. The listing in my shop for a Net Beaded Snood Standard length is the same style that I made for the show. A replica of the Burgundy Snood she wore is the first one you'll see on that listing.

Did you make the snoods I saw at the Disney Theme Park in Florida?

Yes, I have made several different snoods over the years for DMGM Creative Costuming with Disney, Florida. They are worn by Cinderella's dancers in the daily parade as well as several others have appeared in different productions for Disney.

How do I determine what size of snood will work best for me?

The length of a snood depends on the thickness and length of ones own hair. If you have fine or average thickness of hair the standard length will work fine. My hair is average and just past the middle of my back and I wear the 8" length. I like having it up off of my back and level with my shoulders. If you'd like it to hang longer or you have longer and/or thicker hair you should go with a longer snood. I would also caution on the Net pattern that if one has very fine or layered hair you might want to choose another pattern. Since the openings are larger on this snood that type of hair may poke through the openings and look messy. A snood with smaller openings works better for ladies with fine hair.
