This cloche hat is felted with the nicest Merino I have ever used. The fleece was multi dyed with rich Autumn colours. As usual I laid the fleece around a resist, which I had designed and prior to felting I included silk thread for surface texture. It is simple, funky yet elegant and will look great with jeans or a smart coat.It will fit a head approx 22inches/51cms. it may be washed with warm light soapy water by hand. It will retain it's shape as the memory of the hat was set into the wool by the felting and shaping process.
