Here it is, folks – the lululemon Shakti Sherpa Snood ($88) in action! It’s an oddball piece, and I quite honestly doubted my sanity for considering this purchase at first. It came out, but I couldn’t shake the idea of this scarf/hood hybrid, so I took my money and went out on a limb.
Survey says: this thing is GREAT. It’s a thick knit, lined with even thicker fur (wool?) inside. The fabric is said to be merino wool, but it’s not itchy at all. In the past 2 weeks I’ve traveled across the US 3x, and it’s been coming with me to each city to combat the frigid temps currently annoying the nation.
Iowa City. Spokane. Home. Salt Lake. Home. Portland.
All of these places have been cold (especially you, Spokane), yet my ears have stayed toasty the entire time.
Yes, it will set you back $88, but I’ve been incredibly happy with my purchase so far. My standard winter coat doesn’t have a hood, so the snood has stepped up in a big way this December. It will leave you SOL when wet snow or freezing rain begins to fall, (who wants swampy yarn) but for dry snow and plain old freeze pop days, it makes my head happy.
Given that it’s a thick knit with a thick lining, you may not want to keep it on once you get to your destination. Yet for getting yourself from point A to point B in the tundra, it does its job and it does it well.
Here I am with my new snow friend, Seamus. He thinks the snood is cool too.
