This week we dug out the knitted beard collection for some shepherds to wear in a Christmas play (I’m on the costume committee). You may remember these from a few years back (here and then here).
We had a lot of fun trying them on. They look best with hats. The two loopy beards tie on around the head and are secured with hair clips (thus the need for hats). The others handily loop around the ears on narrow elastic.
Knitted beards: a great addition to any dress-ups box.
