What on earth is a scoody? Also called a snood, it's a hood with a scarf attatched. These have been a rethreads favorite for about 4 years now, and I have refined them over that time into a pretty nice garment (if I do say so myself!)

They have a curved hood, and darts on either side of face, meaning they can fit snuggly around the head. I call this design the "Jean Batten" because they remind me of an aviators hat. (google "Jean Batten photo" to see what I mean.)

I've shown one styling option here - there are at least four. Let the scarves hang down, tie them, push the hood back like a scarf (my fave), or wrap it as shown. You 'll find some variations on my facebook page: rethreadsnz.

This Scoody is surprisingly soft, given it's vintage. I cut off the original label, but I suspect there is a quantity of lambswool in this one. The pattern makes it desirable, so I overlooked the small darn which has ended up near the back seam. Small repairs and darns are perfectly acceptable in a reconstructed garment, in my opinion, and add to the history of a piece. It's about1cm across, and virtually unoticable when the garment is being worn. (see photo)

Colour is olive green, with dark red, light blue, mustard and natural patterns.

Length of Hood: 60cm
Depth of Hood: 28cm
Length of Scarves: 50cm (from front of hood)
