This is a newer pattern I call Berka II. It's almost the same as the Berka Shell except that you have a second row of close stitches before the standard pattern takes over. You may choose your color at time of purchase. This snood comes with beads on every row and is my standard 8" Length. These are made to order so please allow 2 to 4 weeks for delivery when you place your order. Those pictured so far are Red/Gold Beads.
My snoods are fully adjustable because they are fitted with elastic cord in the final row which is tied to fit most anyone from children to adults, short to long hair. Ladies with extra thick or really long hair might want to go with an extra long snood instead of this standard length one. Email me for more info on the extra long version and I can create a custom listing for you.
My snoods come complete with instructions on how to put it on and the care of your snood. When properly adjusted this snood can in most cases be worn without the need for hair pins. This is a great addition to your Civil War, Medieval, Renaissance or SCA garb but can also be worn just because it looks great. Because they are adjustable they can also be worn back farther on the head than pictured in a more 40's style as well. You will need to add a couple of hair pins if you opt to wear it back farther on the head. Snoods have made a come back and are wonderful for bad hair days. You just put your hair in the snood and go. No muss, no fuss.
I take PayPal, all major credit cards, checks or money orders as payment. The snood will be held for 10 days if paid for with a personal check before shipping. I ship via Priority Mail insured. I have other snoods listed and will be adding more and I will combine them to save on shipping costs when more than one item is purchased. The Etsy cart does not automatically do this and will overcharge you on shipping. If you want to order more than one style of snood send me a message for a custom order to get the maximum savings on your shipping.
I'll do my best to meet these shipping estimates, but can't guarantee them. Actual delivery time will depend on the shipping method you choose.

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.
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 as well as for shows on the Disney cruise ships.
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.
All snoods and bun covers are made to order so please allow 2-4 weeks for delivery of those items. Hats and Renaissance Garb that I sell are in stock and ship out as soon as order is received and processed, taking no more than 2 business days.
