Description

Details

Old Chinese medicine advice (and mums) say that the warmer you keep your neck the better.  And we totally agree.  So, what better way to shield yourself from a possible flu bug than to wear a Velocity snood.  A lovely, stylish way to keep warm on your chilly travels, on or off the bike.

Made from 100% Merino wool, double-weight for extra warmth against bitter winds and frosty morning chills.  You can wear your snood high above your nose when things get extreme, snug under your chin or buttoned down.  Its funneled shape seals the gaps between your jersey and neck - it works a bit like that doggie draught excluder we're all familiar with, minus the dog.

Perfectly soft, comfortable and cold-weather ready, the Velocity Snood makes sure all the important bits (we sometimes forget) are wrapped up too.

Care: Please note that merino can catch on sharp things like keys and brambles. If a hole appears, this can be easily darned.  We suggest that you wash the Velocity Snood with similar items, and don't use fabric conditioner.  Zips, velcro and metal trims can damage merino during washing - keep these seperate, then dry the snood flat. With a little care, it should become a long-term luxurious favourite.

Who's Behind It?

Velocity Urban Cyclewear is the brainchild and creation of Carolyn Gaskell. She worked for 13 years in the charity and education sectors before prising herself out and fulfilling a passion to create Great British Urban Cyclewear. She aims to create cycling clothes that are as stylish as they are functional - clothes that you can still look great in even after you hop off your steed.

Aside from the exceptional quality of design and finish, what sets Carolyn's creations apart are the cycling specific details. Those little things that you don't necessarily spot initially, but which make all the difference to how you feel when you're on or off your bike.

Equally admirable is Velocity's insistence on both designing and manufacturing in London. Not for them a distant Far Eastern factory - they prefer to able to feel the collars of those actually making their kit - sometimes literally!

In 2015, Carolyn was joined by Lois - a dyed-in-the-wool cycling and design fanatic, who has doubled the team with the aim of taking Velocity to the next level, whilst never passing up a good cup of coffee or slice of cake.
