This hat is a clean silhouette, with adornments that contrast the simplicity of the hat.  From all angles there is something interesting, sculptural and aethetically pleasing.  Subtle but bold design.  A “go anywhere” design.

Description

This hat is handmade by fusing merino wool and chiffon silk in a process of wet felting called nuno felting.  This Gossamer 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.  Beads and sequins maintain the pattern from the up-cycled silk dress.  Lined with a floral black silk, the contrast is whimsical and adds to the lightness of the hat.

This gossamer hat is a VERY thin felt, with silk on the outside and inside of the hat.  A silk satin band binds the bottom 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 (-10 C and colder). Perfect to be worn inside, and gentle on one’s scalp if experiencing hair loss.

This hat fits a smaller head, 21.5-22.5″.
