Evolution of a Felt Hat
Felting is a labor intensive process. During a recent class offered
by the Potomac Fiber Guild, I built a hat under the guidance of our master felter, Roz. Mine certainly wasn't the most
unique or beautiful, but I had fun messing in the wool and water.
The still damp hat was brought home and
dried in the furnace room. When thoroughly dry, I trimmed and embellished with needle felting. The decoration
is an old, old earing needled onto the hat.
