A friend of mine, guendalina is having a sale

http://guendalina.livejournal.com/161775.html

among other things she makes truly beautiful jeweled snoods. (hair nets, crispinets, snoods, whatever you call them) and she has dropped her prices back to pre 2001 prices.

i own a LOT of her snoods, they hang beautifully and wear extremely well.

Silly question....but is it just the woven bits or is it lined with fabric? I'm a snood newb. I found a few more pics on her facebook page if anyone's interested: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Lady-Guendalinas-Closet/261924075098

the white fabric snood underneath is a separate item. you see, i took the photos i pointed to, and i have dark hair. while they show up very well *in person* they did not show up in photos, so we put them over a white fabric snood.

she makes the crochet style netted snoods. if you do not wear a fabric under layer your hair will show.

incidentally, she strings the beads on the cord and THEN crochets them, these beads do not pop off, i have some that are over 15 years old and not one missing bead. cheaper versions have the beads sewn on sometimes, and those "shed" beads.

nod, i bought a couple of fabric snoods from . umm. well that was either Tznius dot com, or veiledbydesign dot com...

two piece hijabs (Muslim womans hair and neck covering) make very useful underlayers and fabric snoods... and good weather protection in winter.
and help photographs of crochet snoods.lol

its not jus you, though. when you do a search on "snood" you come up with everything from a wisp of lace and crochet, to something i would properly call a "bonnet". the religious use the term for any hair covering that isnt a "hat" so it gets used rather widely.

in the SCA or rennaisance fair community it *usually* means a net work hair covering.

one of those terms that gets used widely, always best to check! i have seen some sites where the net is in fact sewn onto the solid underlayer, so its a perfectly good question.

Guen is from the SCA/REenn community side of things, and her snoods are crochet and open work, you provide your own underlayer.

sorry for the confusion!

Cool thanks for all the info! I'm in Australia and the only local medieval faire (we don't call them Ren fairs for some reason) seems to get cancelled every second year because they lose money >.>. I've never seen any snoods, and I envy all the hairbraiders that turn up in the US because I've never seen any professional braiders here at all! Ah envy :P. Thanks again :).

ah? You should look into the SCA then, you would like it i think.

the Aussie contingent shows up every year for Pennsic (a big SCA/medieval event here in the states)
i know there is a large SCA group in Australia, but i also know that geographically you could still be far away, its a big country.
www.sca.org

i believe you would be in Lochac (the SCA is divided into Kingdoms, Lochac is Australia, New Zealand, and parts of antartica)
http://lochac.sca.org/lochac/
go there for basic information

Your kingdom seneschal (chief bureaucrat) is Master Bartholomew Baskin (Peter Hyde)
+64-3-384-5137; seneschal@lochac.sca.org

for reference, i am in the United States, on the east coast, in Philadelphia.
mid Atlantic to North is the SCA's East Kingdom
Philadelphia is the "Barony of Bhakail"

good luck!

she makes a GREAT quality snood.
