Scout woggle is not a typical badge - it is used to fasten the scout scarf. Scout teams sometimes have uniform woggles, and sometimes they all have different woggles - there are as many possibilities as there are types of scout woggles. The name used alternatively for the woggle is also the scout neckerchief slide. Most of them are made with leather, but the material is optional - in our offer you will also find a metal woggle for a scarf or a woggle made of fabric. Remember that the scout scarf slide is a small item and is very easy to lose, so it is always worth having a spare woggle in your pocket.
Scout scarf woggles are a neccessary complement to any uniform. It allows you to keep the scarf in the right place and distinguishes the group. Of course, version and color of the slide should be matched to the color of the scarf so that they look good together.
If you need something completely unique, check out the collection of scout neckerchiefs slides from the official WOSM scouting store, or order an individually customized embroidered or fired slide for you and your scouts.
Woggle is a great element that supports the scout scarf in a compact form and gives the rolled fabric a truly beautiful shape. It makes for an important part of the scout uniform and is significantly exposed on the uniform. Scarf slides are made of various materials. It happens, that young scouts make woggles mostly from bark, because they usually receive scarves during scout camps, and then most easily available material is a wood bark. In this way, they can individually make their first scarf slide and make the uniform unique.
The best-looking scout neckerchief slides are made of cowhide or interwoven waxed thong. They are the most elegant woggles and an additional advantage is the fact that you can burn a lily symbol or the figure of Robert Baden-Powell - the founder of scouting. Another interesting pattern is a little lily padded on woggle, which emphasizes the beauty of this uniform component. Leather is also very reliable because it does not deteriorate quickly, and better reflects the patina of time on the uniform, which is so appreciated by scouts. Especially older guides and instructors choose solid and tasteful leather woggles to highlight the character of the uniform and its dignity. There is also a crafted collection of gadgets from Headquarters, where you can choose from a variety of designs approved by the most important and meaningful scout organization.
Obviously, traditions related to the type of slides depend on the team, as the primary function of all uniforms is equality and uniformity in the environment.
You surely know how to roll up a scout scarf. Perhaps you even know ways to tie it up. But how many of us really know and can make a nice knot on it? Anyway, such a knot is not very practical. To take off a scarf, you need to untie it, and then tire yourself again in order to tie it nicely.
Therefore, from the very beginning scout woggles have become a handy addition to the scout uniform. They are easy to put on and take off. They keep the neckerchief stable in one place. Of course, apart from its functionality, there is one more thing that cannot be overestimated.
It is their appearance, of course. The possibilities are enormous. Scout woggles made of leather, plastic, with a lily symbol, plaited, fired. And each of them might have a different color, shade and version. Thanks to this, we have a lot to choose from.
