I have decided to will spring to come by posting my favourite spring felt hat. I always find that early spring in northern climates is tough for hat lovers. One really wants to ditch the fleece, but straw just doesn't feel right. This is my answer to a persistent hat question. I made this hat from merino wool. It was based on a beautiful vintage straw hat that I have in my collection from the 1920s. Happy Spring! O.K.....soon.
