BOB Hat Giveaway
Last winter we saw our friends Tom and Jenny for the first time in months after we'd both pulled up in the same layby in Glencoe. The day was a typical bitter Scottish blaster and, as we stood chatting about the plans for the day with the wind whipping up the valley, my eyes were drawn to their cosy looking bobble hats. Jenny saw my envious gaze and, with a smug squeeze of her bobble, smiled and said simply 'BOB Hats'.
BOB Hats, it turned out, is the brainchild of climbers Becky and Will from North Wales. They started the business to fund their climbing adventures and each lovingly crafted BOB Hat is a hand crafted work or art. They are made from wool sourced from local craft and charity shops and everything from the little leather BOB label to the fluffy bobble is made by hand (usually, it seems, in the back of the couples van as they journey to the next climbing location!). They have even catered for climbers wanting a bobble free option because every fluffy ball is removable (or, as they describe it, removabobble!).
Anyway, we made contact with the BOB Hats team and they kindly sent us some hats to test as well as a couple to give away. They would make perfect Christmas presents (although after trying one yourself we doubt you'd be keen to give it away!) for the outdoor person in your life and would be spot on for keep the winter winds at bay. BOB Hats has a website here that is well worth a browse.
