What is satin?
Contrary to popular belief, satin is not a fabric, it's actually a weave. Satin can be made from synthetic or natural fibres. Natural satin is made from silk. If you prefer silk (natural) satin, which is a breathable fabric, we can make snoods and coats to order. Please message us with your requirements.
Why choose satin for dog snoods?
Polyester satin is a luxuriously smooth and glossy fabric. It looks glamourous and is a rich but soft texture for snoods which means it is comfortable for your dog to wear. This fabric is colourfast, which means our snoods keep their rich colour, wash after wash.
Satin is favoured by many show exhibitors of spaniels and setters to keep their silky coats looking their glamourous best. Satin's smooth finish means there is less friction when your dog moves about and there is therefore less hair breakage and frizz. Satin snoods keep your show dog's blow dried ears smooth for longer and that means show ready.
Caring for your satin snood
Regardless of whether your snood is made from synthetic or natural satin, we recommend treating it as a delicate. This means handwashing or you can gentle machine wash on a "delicates" setting. A wash bag is a good idea for machine washing and protects the satin fibres from snagging or pulling.
