So why the h*ll is it called a Snood?

I appreciate you can wear it around your neck like a scarf or pull it up over your head like a hoody?  So, why is it not call a Scoody, Hoofy, Scardy, Shoody, Hody, Horf or some other daft combination?  The ‘sn’ bit has me a bit perplexed.  Can anyone shed some light on this?

But who cares about all that, the most important thing is that this Lambswool Snood is keeping me toasty during this cold snap we’re having!  Yes, I’ve been wearing it indoors recently.
