It’s time to get those winter woolies out, if you haven’t already. Or, here’s a thought – how about you treat yourself to some new gloves. Perhaps a new hat, or even a beautiful new scarf! Winter woolies get stuck in the drawer for a year, and let’s be honest, they sometimes come back out looking a bit moth-eaten, or just worse for wear.
This year the bobble hat reigns supreme. It’s available pretty much everywhere, in every colour and yarn you can imagine. It’s the king of the winter woolies for 2013, so invest in one now!

There are also bobble hats of the novelty variety around if that’s your thing. They might make the perfect gift…they might not! Christmas motifs, double pom-poms, and, well, eyes!
If a bobble hat isn’t your thing, perhaps a beret style knit might be the best of the winter woolies for you. With a pom-pom, perhaps?!
Mitts are popular this season as well. Nostalgia rules when you pop on a pair of mitts, don’t you think? But in the winter woolies practicality category they score quite low. Bit of a pest when trying to do, well, anything, with these on.
A scarf is a winter essential. Cable knit and long, cashmere, fake fur, snood style, with an incorporated hood – whatever your scarf style there is one out there for you.

The best winter woolies are the sets you can buy – matchy-matchy is ether your thing or not, though. But if you do want to match it all up, keep your winter coat simple, to make your winter woolies accessories stand out.
