This is a fine and FUN HAT — we love the shape and design.
“This hat was made using Living Felt medium hat block and the extension. Living Felt Black Onyx MC -1 Batt with alpaca sandwiched in between layers. It was wet felted then more batt was needle felted over top which added strength and a finished look. The hat band was left over felting and Lincoln Locks are the embellishment.
Thank you for supplies and knowledge you provide.”

“Fall Fairytale,” a perfect hat for for a perfect fall day!
This gorgeous hat was custom made just for us by Judi Francis of Felting With a Point in Pennsylvania. Judi made a similar hat for The Pence Gallery and we just had to have one!
It is lovingly wet felted using Merino Top in Oak, and our Autumn Leaves Designer Pack. We love all the rich details and the precious little lady bugs!! This beautiful wearable art is currently on display at our shop!

Steve Whalen is felting with his wife, Erin, and we were so happy to receive this submission for this hat he made! His hats weigh 4.5 – 5oz and are wet felted over a resist, and then shaped on a hat block. This one is made with Living Felt MC-1 Felting Batts True Violet and accented with Multi-Colored Merino Top Cranberry.
A note from Erin:
“I consider myself extremely lucky to have a hubby who spins, weaves and now, wet felts! We’ve taken several wet felting classes together and have since modified and improved our techniques.
We’ve recently started making wet felted hats over a resist. This is my husband’s latest hat. I’m a little biased, but I think his work is fabulous! It’s amazing how straight he can get the brim. (Real men DO wet felt – LOL!!)”

We challenged the ever-adventurous Sonja Weeks Oswalt of Tennessee to felt up anything she felt inspired to with our Fire Mountain Designer Pack, and she made this awesome ensemble.
She added approx. 2oz of additional fiber so she could make all 3 pieces. The scarf is nuno felted and the silk was initially dyed with Kool-Aid. The wrist warmers were wet felted over a resist, we have a free video lesson for this, and the hat was first wet felted flat and then shaped over a hat block.
The wrist warmers can shrink quite a bit!
For their fun girls getaway, these women decided to make some wet felted hats! Suzy Whitney taught her friends how to wet felt a hat on a gertie ball– what a fun weekend idea!
They look like they had a lot of fun- hats make a great holiday gift. 🙂

Jeanne Cote of Quebec needle and wet felted this wonderful hat using the Living Felt Needle Felting a Hat Kit. She used Merino Cross Batt Bamboo and Willow for the color options.
We really love how she wet felted so much structure into it.
Jeanne says, “I love felting, it is sublime!” We agree with you Jeanne!
