'Light' is part of the '360 senses' collection which is series of twelve hats inspired by Ancient Egyptian beliefs and spirituality.
This dished pillbox hat has been completely hand blocked, wired and stitched.
Made from a sturdy buckram base, its then covered in a blue and ivory knitted fabric in a zig zag pattern. The blue yarns are 100% lambswool and the ivory yarns contain both lambswool and phosphorescent yarn. The phosphorescent yarn will charge in the day under sunlight, then glow of its own accord during the night, making a real conversation piece of a hat!
Lined in a contrasting silk and secured to the head with hidden elastic making it very easy to wear.
The fabric on this hat has been designed and produced by myself so is completely unique.
12cm's in diameter and 5cm's at highest point. One size fits all.
buckram, wire, lambswool, phosphorescent yarn, silk dupion.
