It’s the middle of Woolley Hat Week. Yes, a full week of celebrating those warm wonderful fuzzy things. Traditionally, the purpose of the week is to get people wearing their Wolley Hats to work to raise funds for the Sailor’s Society. There’s also a woolley hat day in November to raise funds for St. Mungo’s, a homelessness charity.
Aside from participating to raise money for a good cause, we thought we’d give you a few other great reasons to wear a woolley hat – and not just for this week!
- Human Heat. A serious amount of human heat can be lost if your head is without a hat. Between 10-50% in fact. Just think how much lower your energy bills could be at home if you just popped on a hat and how much more warmer you’d be.
- Woolley hats are a timeless trend. People have been wearing hats since .. well 27,000 years ago. The oldest hat in the world is over 27,000 years old so you can be sure that they won’t be going out of fashion anytime soon. If you’re bored of the woolley hat you’ve got thenvery many patterns available for free online to help get you started as well as online tutorials.
