We’ve got our tickets ready and we’re really excited for this year’s Fort William Mountain Bike World Cup, enjoying the 15th year of this amazing event in bonnie Scotland!
To celebrate this momentous occasion, we’ve designed and knit 3 custom design bobble hats featuring the UCI colours. These special edition woolly hats are up for grabs through our Facebook & Instagram pages.
To be in with a chance of winning one of these banging bobble hats, tell us the names of the 2016 men’s AND women’s winners at Fort Bill, it’s just so easy!
If you’d like one of these cosy hats, get involved quickly as we’re calling the winners on Saturday 3rd June, on yer bikes and good luck! 🙂
As the wedding seasons gets going we find the number of requests for bespoke bobble hats increase as friends and family seek a unique gift for the happy couple. We work closely with our customers offering a full custom design knitting service where we create unique gifts that reflect the personality of the couple. From two-tone hats with Mr M & Mrs M emblazoned across the front, to colourful wonky hats with hidden messages on the inside, we can make them all!
It’s not all about the happy couple though, we also get lots of requests for stag and hen parties who want a shared memento from their adventures. We’ve made hats with nicknames on them and also ones that have fun messages to decipher when the whole group stands next to each other. All of our hats can be fully customised with the most infamous to date being GRANT – IS – A – (we’ll leave the rest to your imagination!) for 4 snowboarding brothers.
Each hat is handmade with care and attention in our Glasgow workshop, ensuring your memento will last for years to come. If you have an idea that you would like to bring to life, get in touch via our contact page, our social channels or give us a call 🙂
We find ourselves just a month away from one of our favourite events – The Glentress 7 mountain bike race, part of the Tweedlove Bike Festival in the Scottish Borders. This is the 7th year of this fantastic event and it’s time to get on our bikes in preparation for 7hrs of pain and pleasure over the 11km course.
I’ve a score to settle following an early exit last year – after I found myself upside down and inside a mountain rescue ambulance, whilst attempting an ‘innovative’ manoeuvre subsequently crashing into a tree. Thanks Tweed Valley Bike Patrol 🙂
Alison & I will once again be participating in the pairs category as Team Wonky Woolies, complete with our custom race shirts and bobble hats. If you’d like to be seen at the event (on the podium perhaps?) in your own team colours like the folks from Team NIER (No Idea Endurance Racers), Glasgow Riderz, Clydesdale Colts & Singletrack Magazine, get in touch with us now!
The GT7 is held on Saturday 27th May and is part of a wide range of great events for all ages and abilities during the Tweedlove festival. Say hello if you see us on the day – we’ll be the ones in the coolest bobble hats around & the biggest smiles of relief when the 7hrs is up!
As we bid the summer a fond farewell, we’re looking to grab a cosy hat to help us through the winter. Come and visit our stand at the Autumn trade fair where we’ll help you find your own!
Its all about the bundles! We’ve created 3 sets of soft yarn hats in complimenting colours – The Bold, The Brave and The Bonnie – which will be the perfect addition to your winter window display. Each set of 10 handmade hats have been carefully selected from our top selling designs to ensure you have vibrant and exciting collections in your shop. We’ve made a super cute set of children’s hats, including our popular little tractor and boat designs, which make lovely stocking fillers. If you adore pure wool, we have a fabulous set of them too! Within this collection you will find 5 Shetland wool hats, 3 soft lambswool designs and 2 luxurious merino wool creations, ooh feel them hugging your head!
These bundles are only available at the show, where you’ll not only get a diverse collection to add to your Christmas range but we’ll also give you 10% off the total cost, it’s a double whammy of wonderfulness!
The trade show is open at the SECC in Glasgow on Sunday 18th & Monday 19th September from 0930-1700. Come and check out our lovely bunches of bobbles at stand P6, we hope to see you there! 😀

We always look forward to meeting new Wonky Wearers! Hope to see you there 🙂
This past year the Wonky workshop has been in full swing with many hats being knitted by our fantastic team of skilled makers. One of our strengths as a knitwear business is that we work with lots of companies and individuals to create custom design hats. Last year we started working with Hope Technology, who are world leaders in the design and manufacture of bike components, to make the perfect bobble hat to fit their brand. Hope Tech have a distinctive logo and their brand colour is a brilliant bright green, which is much more green than any other green we had seen! In fact it is so bright this green that we had to ask our supplier Yeoman Yarns to create a unique colour batch of yarn especially for them.
In the past year we have made 1302 hats for the folks from Barnoldswick, which have been very popular with their customers, sponsored riders and other industry fans. This year we are looking forward to making more hand crafted hats for Hope, we’ve also been encouraged by the great response on the Hope Tech Women Instagram account showing the green hats popping among rich purple heather (love purple and green together!). We make each one of their hats individually by hand in our Glasgow workshop which you can buy exclusivley from HopeTech.com 😀
