We have been supplying eco-friendly snoods, also known as neck tubes or neck gaiters, for over 20 years in the UK. Until this year, they have been purely to protect staff from the elements. But the covid-19 pandemic has brought with it the need for face coverings to protect from the virus, and increasingly we are finding that our customers want to offer their staff the option of a snood, either in addition to or instead of the standard face mask.
So as well as a standard knitted snood and a fleece snood, we have now developed an ethical eco-friendly snood (neck gaiter / neck tube) that has an antiviral treatment which kills Covid-19 when it comes into contact with it. This antiviral snood also acts as a 3 layer face mask when pulled up over the mouth.
We have also introduced a lightweight anti viral snood (scarf face mask), which is less about protecting from the elements, and more of a comfortable anti-viral alternative to a face mask which can be worn in all weathers. A good quality basic lightweight snood without anti-bacterial treatment has also been added to the range, to give the option of a good value basic alternative to a face mask, available in a wide range of colours.
Most customers want to see a sample before they purchase, so just let us know if there is anything you’d like to see, and we’ll pop a sample in the post. You can also give us a call, email or live chat if there’s any further information you’d like about any of these products.
All of our snoods can be printed, and prices for this service are shown on the individual product pages.
