This is the start of layout for my next hat project. My vision is for a floppy backwoods hillbilly hat.
I’m using this super rich sandalwood merino roving.
Laying the wool out on the resist, it’s almost ready for prefelt.
Stay tuned as this comes together.
I made this bowler for my father. He’s always wanted one. This took a little work. It has a leather sweatband, lining, and hand laid felt.
