This gossamer hat reminds me of swimming in lakes and rivers of the great Canadian outdoors.  So many shades of green!  When light descends into the water bouncing off objects that are visible from the surface, they are often closely associated colors to green; yellow, cream, chartreuse and blue.  Whether you enjoy water from a boat, or in the water itself, this hat can make you feel that much closer to nature.  The palate is simply relaxing, while the lightweight fabric and silk against your head (lining the hat) is pure delight.

Description

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 (but fits great under a hood)! Perfect to be worn inside, and gentle on one’s scalp if experiencing hair loss.

This hat fits a small head 21.5-22.5” in circumference. If you have questions about fit, please let me know.
