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.

Add a little jaunt to your step.  This series of Chapeaux are all fashioned from warm, comfy fleece.  That means toss them in the washing machine and dryer. (remove breakable ornamentation first!)

Toasty Warm

Knitted hats require a little more care than fleece but have their own éclat.  They take longer to make and the fiber is usually animal unless otherwise noted.  No animals were harmed--I promise.
