Football is a veritable soap opera; promotion and relegation, ecstacy and despair. Yin and yang, Dark and light, opposites only exist in relation to each other and some of us reject all the fuss. Some of us find joy in mid-table security. The inspiration behind the bobble hat is a chant sung by a number of British football teams’ fans:
“We’re not going down and we’re not going up,
We won’t win the league and we won’t win the cup”
Made from 100% super soft, lambswool and knitted in Scotland the classic bobble hat features a traditional Fair Isle design with a typographic twist and is a limited edition of 50.
The Limited edition designer QBA bobble hat (£42 – available in black or snow) is available exclusively online at: shop.quietbritishaccent.com.
