Nellie is an vintage-inspired statement piece.  A one-of-a-kind hat that fuses the beaded sequinned silk of a “trophy wife” dress with two different colored merino wools; tan and black.  It is a casual-feeling hat as there are variegations in the wool colors and is an extremely comfortable hat to wear.  With all the gray beading and muted sequins, however, it leans towards a dressier hat, or a hat to be worn for an occasion.  Think of it as a bridesmaid dress that you can ACTUALLY wear anytime you wish!  Dress it up with a felt coat or down with  a sweater and jean jacket.

Nellie will keep the winter at bay, providing you with warmth and repelling any snow, sleet or fog and rain (not a downpour mind you).  She’s a wearable piece of art.

Description

This hat is made “from scratch” by fusing upcycled beaded 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 an angled brim.  There is a elasticated band on the inside of the hat to hold it in place on your head.  This hat has sufficient depth allowing you to pull it right down to your eyebrow, or leave it higher at the front of your head, whatever way you wish to wear it.  Coquettish with a subtle shine, this hat is sure to turn heads while protecting you from winter!

Fits a large-sized head, 23″-24.00″ in size.  If you have questions about fit, please let me know.
