I spent so much of my childhood in church behind women who dyed their hair blue, I just couldn't resist the title for this entry and the play on words since this hat is made from angora. Maybe that's only funny to me, but I just had to do it!
But, nonetheless, this felt hat is double hooded sculpted hat that was over dyed once it was completed. The reason I chose to over dye it is because it is made of a great deal of angora fiber along with merino wool and silk and mohair accents on the surface. If I had dyed the fibers prior to the felting process I was concerned that it would felt the dye pot, so I waited.
Enjoy the joys in this day!
