Some New Hats
I've had some health issues, but feeling better now, so will be trying to catch up by posting some of the new hats I've made. These hats have been made to replace the sold ones on my website, so there are several styles pages that are represented. The first were the lumpy knits. Some of those got sold at a holiday fair and got replaced by the three included in this post.
This one has a turned up brim that can also be worn turned down. It's mostly Corriedale wool with lumpy sections in art yarn with mohair and wool mixed with various novelty fibers. It's one size fits all and is thick spun, warm, soft and cozy.
This one is a little shorter than the one with the brim and slightly smaller. The colors are similar but with less white. This one would fit a small to medium and is also mostly Corriedale wool. The lumpy sections are constructed from art yarns made with various colors of wool with bits of novelty fiber and mohair added in.
This last one is made from Corriedale wool and some extra soft Merino wool blended with angora, most of which has been plied with thin metallic gold tread that has tiny gold leaves attached to it here and there. These are hard to see in the photo, but there is one at the edge of the middle lumpy section towards the upper part of the hat. There are more, but unfortunately they aren't visible. The lumpy sections are made from Corriedale wool, mohair and some of the Merino. The non lumpy sections are made from natural gray malamute hair, and the brim and top are more of the Merino with angora and gold thread.
