Sometimes a silk floral pattern speaks louder than another, and this one screams!  I have had this up-cycled silk dress in my storage for years, waiting for the correct moment to make a hat.  The deep jewel tones remind me of pansies and all their color varieties.  The velvety feel, the smell and colors, how the petals tumble atop one another in a breeze are all reflected in the casual nature of this hat. Multiple folds hand-stitched in place, this gossamer hat is super lightweight…perfect for a fresh spring day, a cool summer night, or even fresh fall day.  Keep the beauty of the pansy alive all year-round with this hat!

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. Perfect to be worn inside, and gentle on one’s scalp if experiencing hair loss.

This hat fits a head 22.5-23.5” in circumference. If you have questions about fit, please let me know.
