I taught a spinning class this weekend in Lansing Michigan and had a wonderful time with some lovely women. While they were spinning, I had the opportunity to make a needle felt hat, which I later wet felted. The colors are from some of the hand dyed fibers I'd dyed up earlier. The inside of the hat is all merino wool, while the exterior is a combination of merino and corriedale with a bit of mohair in it. It is a bit fussier that I like to have on my hats, but I think it will be ok for the style. I might give it a quick shave as well.
There are many designs going through my head, but the challenge is to find the time to get them on the table, laid out, rolled, shaped, pressed, dried and sitting on someones head!
