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.

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.

      Thanks so much for your comment, Marea, it’s really good to meet you! Yes, just read your blog and the grey hat, like your lovely purple hat, is really warm so I haven’t worn it all that often because the Uk weather isn’t as cold as Norwegian weather. But it’s been quite chilly over the last few days so I’ve worn it twice now.

      And I look forward to other Hat Attacks – it’s great to meet like-minded women 🙂
