Merino, silk and angora blended felt hat

Since I know that I am going back to nursing full time, I am trying to deplete some of my stash and put some special blends together to see how they will felt. This hat is merino, silk and angora blended together. It is wonderfully soft and took the dye nicely. I did dye it after I made it. Didn't think it would be good to try to dye the angora before it was felted. It might have felted in the dye bath.
Terribly cold here tonight. The temps are going to 5 above zero, but there is also a strong breeze that is making the whole of the house feel much colder than usual...and me too

Love this hat! I can't tell but did the color get stronger (darker) in the folds or is it just the light?

I have the hardest time capturing this color on my camera. It is nearly all one color Tina, it is my bad lighting and knowledge on taking decent photos.
