Funnily enough that beautiful fur hat (that featured in my last post and goes with the leopard skin fur coat) is not particularly warm if worn straight on the head, because it leaves the back of my head bare. Lots of hats I try on don’t fit all that well, because I’ve got a big head so they just sit on the top of my head. The fur hat isn’t small, but I’ll have to wear it at an angle if I want to keep my head warm.
Anyway, here’s a hat that is warm. It’s wonderful as it covers my head completely.
The hat is made of boiled wool. I bought it in Norway in a little village called Skjolden which is at the far end of a beautiful fjord. And I was told that the hat maker not only made the hat, she owned the sheep and spun their wool that she boiled to make the hat. Actually, I’m not quite sure of the exact procedure, so if you know do tell me.
I’m linking this blog post to Style Crone’s February Hat Attack and in reading this you have joined a huge community of hat lovers of this world! Thank you Judith for creating Hat Attack – I hope to join in every time from now onwards!
That’s all for now

P.S. Thought about what this bit of the blog should be called and Hat Walk is both a play on catwalk and also my belief that hats should be worn and walked about, and not kept in the closet.
