This hat is for many kinds of women…

Perhaps you want a hat to throw on as you head to the market.  Not a toque, but something a little more upscale, comfortable, and one-of-a-kind design?  No fuss, with whisps of hair or a ponytail poking out the bottom, this is surely the hat to turn heads.

Perhaps to wear to a concert or dinner out.  Thin enough to stay on your head (indoors), this is a chic style with classic colors.  Do you love black and want to branch out a little (not a lot)?  This is the hat for you

Perhaps you’re one of those women who love to wear hats.  The comfort of a gossamer on your head is unparalleled.  It is virtually weightless, with only a thin layer of merino wool between two layers of chiffon silk…  Sigh…  The texture is dreamy, and it is very breathable.  It is like heaven on your head!

The Gossamer hat is a Trish Raine-developed hat, handmade by fusing merino wool and chiffon silk in a process of wet felting (nuno felting).  This hat has silk on the outside of the hat, and is also fully lined inside with more silk.  The soft merino wool is felted between the two layers of silk, essentially “gluing” them together.  This means that it will be comfortable on your head, and will breathe.

This gossamer hat is a VERY thin felt, with silk on the outside and inside of the hat.

This hat is wonderful for fall or spring, or if you have cooler summer nights. It is good in the winter, but not warm enough for very cold temperatures. Perfect to be worn inside, and gentle on one’s scalp if experiencing hair loss.

This hat fits a head 22.25-23.0” in circumference. If you have questions about fit, please let me know.
