For those of you who don’t know me, I’m a fan of winter.  I’m one of “those” people, who crave snowfall, don’t mind the cold, and even look forward to winter driving!!!  🙂   After spending years in the Middle East where a cloud in the sky was something to talk about, on repatriating to Canada I decided that I would embrace winter.  Dive in wholly,with both feet.  Once you dress for and get over the cold, there is INCREDIBLE beauty in that time of year.

This hat reminds me of a stand of birch trees in the winter.  Beautiful, white and elegant.  Silhouettes and long shadows.

Description

This hat is made “from scratch” fusing an upcycled chiffon silk  and merino wool by hand in a process called nuno (wet) felting.  Once the felt is formed, the hat is stiffened and shaped over a vintage block.  It features a deep crown, and a front pleat design.  There is a elasticated band on the inside of the hat to hold it in place on your head.  This hat has wonderful volume, which is great for not crushing your hair.

Fits a medium-sized head, 22.25-22.75″ in size.  If you have questions about fit, please let me know.
