Tdaditional Hats and Scarves - Advice please

Postby JAL76 on Wed Aug 09, 2017 6:00 am

I have been looking to purchase, for some time, traditional woollen scarfs and hats for my family which is proving to be difficult.

I am not overly impressed with what is available from the official outlets and have also researched the web with little success.

I never use to have a problem - all those stalls around the Boleyn ground.

I would be grateful for any assistance , suggestions and pointers.

It's a tricky one mate.

Me and my family opted to get a batch of the Russian hats that Sullivan wears. We all look great! :shock:

Check eBay mate. There's plenty on there usually.

Pedant Alert

'Traditional football scarves' aren't made from wool, they're all acrylic.
If you want a claret and blue bar scarf let me know. :scarfer:

are you sure ? how long has acrylic been around and how long has football been around

i would have thought that traditionally they were made from wool up until the 60's ??

Pretty sure yes, acrylic fibre has been around since the 50's. A scarf produced on a conventional knitting machine made from wool would be very long and very expensive. The bar scarves are all machine made unless made by some family relative with the knitting needles and then the stitch is usually much larger. Pure wool brings a lot of people out in a rash if its worn directly next to the skin which is why knitted wool bathing suits never really caught on despite my Aunt Doris' best attempts for her 3.

I bought one of the big thick wool ones from eBay last year. The quality is brilliant and they look the nuts... However, it is SO hot! In reality even in December and January match days last year, I couldn't wait to get to my seat and take it off. The thinner material ones are definitely the way forward for the sweatier man and I've now bought one of those in white with claret and blue stripes.
