Due to the cancellation of my three main outlets this year (Woolfest, Yarndale and Harrogate Knitting & Stitching show) I have had to rethink my entire selling strategy!!
Sooo, this is me, dipping my toes into online selling! ... ... ... ... ... Free delivery in UK (Royal Mail) ... ... ... Rest of world? - I'll have to look it up!!
Handmade wet felted merino wool cloche hat, a mélange of dark pinks and greys, embellished with hand dyed silks felted into the wool. It has a vintage feel to it, with a curved brim and scrunched crown. A matching rose is attached to the hat with a hat pin, so it's position can be changed, or removed and used as a lapel pin.
This is another one of my designs from the 'Squashable' range. So called because the design of the hat ensures it retains its shape even after squashing! Fabulous when you are shopping - just fold the hat and pop it in your bag.
Yes, wear it in the rain and snow. No, it won't shrink in the rain. Just dry it in shape after it gets wet. (in this case, scrunch the creases!)
As with all my hats, the fit is adjustable. There is an inner drawstring threaded into the felt itself - pull the tab to your size and wrap it around the button to secure. This means that this hat will fit most heads - from approx 54 - 59 cm (approx 21-23 inches)
I make all my hats by hand, turning unspun merino wool into a strong felt using traditional wet felting methods.
This was adapted from a Russian masterclass I found online. (Eastern bloc felters are amazing!) It starts life as an elongated egg shape, which is then folded to form a double layered hat. I made the upper part longer than the inner, so that I could add interesting folds and creases.
