History tells us that the majority bobble hats tend to have the following things in common:
- They keep your conk warm
- They’re made out of wool and probably by a machine (usually knitted in a nice pretty pattern)
- They’ve got a bobble (as the name suggests)
All fairly standard stuff.
Now just imagine asking your pal where he got his new lid from and him coming out the following:
”Actually my bobble hat was hand knit by Mayan Elders in the remote Mexican town of Chamula, and it’s super-soft merino wool has been hand-sheared from the sheep that graze surrounding Chiapas highlands’.
You’d be forgiven for thinking one of the following three things:
- What a prize hoop, he can shove his hand-sheared headwear up his pipe.
- My hat’s pure shite in comparison and I’d kill for one of them, but no one likes a clever cunt.
- Wearing that would make me look a lot like ‘Marcus’ from ‘About A Boy’ (with 9 o’clock shadow), but Christ how soft and lush would the thing would feel against my napper.
Whatever you reckon, thankfully there’s no reason to send a Mayan inscription via carrier pigeon to get one, just click on this blue text via the wonders of the internet.
