I’ve been itching to make something with all the silks I brought back from Woolfest last weekend and today I finally found a few hours spare to make a hat.
I used a mixture of hand-dyed silk hankies and tops over a base of hand-dyed merino.
I didn’t set out to make a top hat but it just seemed right to stop folding down the pleats at this point. It’s drying at the moment so the colours might change slightly and I’m hoping the silks will become more shiny as it dries.
I like it best from the back, is that a bit perverse?
