Hat workshop

It was great fun making this hat with Robbin Firth of Heartfelt Silks. Extensive use of both the standard palm washboard and the edge.


Merino wool embellished with dyed silk hankies.


The pleats are put it after the felt has been fulled and before it dries.


I was very pleased with how this turned out although I have to admit, for a penchant for hats with large brims so you may not see me wearing this.

  1. The hat is really gorgeous, I always wondered how they put the pleats in, I’d love to make one like that. I like felted quirky hats. You’ll have to wear it on a dull winter day to brighten things up! Or maybe a dull summer day!
