The Slouch Hat Is Listed
I have been wanting and waiting to list this hat for about a month now. The hardest part was getting Megan at home when it was still daylight to take the pictures. Oh yeah and me putting off blocking it for so long hehe. Blocking it was definitely worth it though because it made it more slouchy and sit the way that I wanted it to.
Megan has no problem being my model. I think she feels a little bit famous when I put her in my shop.
This hat was made out of the hand spun hand dyed yarn that I got in a trade with the Etsy shop Lamb's Ears. I still have a little bit left and Im trying to think of what else to do with it because I dont want any of it wasted. This yarn is so soft and warm. It is made from 40% wool, 40% Mohair and 20% Angora. It is spun with black lambs fleece and dyed Violet, Purple, and Silver Mohair and Angora. I think its cool that they used black fleece instead of the usual white. I wish I got to use handspun yarn more often. What a luxury.
