Good day! This offering is for a pretty little hair net to wear with your mid 19th Century dresses. The ribbon is satin poly in a pretty candy pink and is pleated in a nice design. There are glass pearls decorating the ribbon The net itself is a nice, sturdy weight hair net in medium brown. The inside of the band the ribbon is secured to is lined with white velvet ribbon so this net will stay where you put it without having to resort to bobby pins. I will ship it in a small, Priority Mail flat rate box which is $5.80 in postage. This is the only way I could find to ensure that the ribbon does not get crushed and wrinkled. Thanks!
Fancy Headdress - This net is made of chenille, silk, or braid. A plait of velvet is placed round it, and at the side is a velvet bow. Take note my fellow reenactors, this is NOT a heavy rayon or polyester net.
http://timelytresses.com/trimmings/hair%20dressing/yellow%20green%20net.JPG This is the correct kind of net and ribbon to wear. Seen more on younger ladies than on older, but not unusual for older ladies either. It is not correct to call them snoods - snoods were worn during WWII. These are nets.
