Felted Wool Hats

Hand knitted of 100% pure Merino Wool from New Zealand
These extremely high quality hats are hand knitted, hand felted and shaped by me.
The texture is wonderful, and they really keep your head warm.
Hand washable, reshape then air dry.


Above is one example of what you can do with a few feathers.

These hats will last many many years if properly cared for which makes them well worth the money.  The Merino Wool from New Zealand is naturally water resistant and the quality of this wool is outstanding.  They can be kept simple and elegant or you can decorate to your hearts content.  Add a broach or some flowers or just a simple matching satin band. A grouping of soft floppy antique looking satin roses would be lovely! 

These hats are very adjustable to your own personality.  They are soft but hold their shape wonderfully.

Millinery
The term milliner dates back to Italy in the 16th and 17th Centuries when it meant supplier of fancy goods, such as straw hats, gloves and other accessories that Milan was renowned for. It was only in the 1770s that the milliner started to design and make hats. The decorative aspects of millinery were most notable in France, although England was the originator and developer of many styles of hats.
By the mid 1800s, millinery had established itself as being on the same level as haute couture with the first important name in millinery being Caroline Reboux. Hats were designed specifically for the individual and were used to emphasise and even exaggerate their personal characteristics. During the late Edwardian period hats became very much a status symbol encouraging many more society women to develop their skills as milliners. Hats continued to be popular until the 1960s, when they underwent a steady decline. Millinery today has benefited from somewhat of a revival and the return of hat wearing is gradually becoming more common.
