Lightweight, not bulky, and ideal for pulling up over lower face to keep chin and cheeks warm. Nice soft cosy fleecy lining which isn't at all itchy against your face. So much better than wearing a scarf which unwinds, works loose and doesn't stay in place to hug face. This snood is neat and tidy, unlike a scarf's nuisance loose ends which get in the way and serve no purpose. Easily adjustable to talk, eat, drink. Will also convert to a rather nice non-itchy hat which will pull well down. Easy to pack, taking zero space in suitcase. Excellent value, looks good, and very useful. Washes well.
