This is a hat I called "Barbara" on Etsy and elsewhere. It was spun from Merino wool that I handpainted and then Navajo plied to keep the colors clear. It was pretty, but a bit pastel and although it was labor intensive, didn't appeal to anyone enough to buy this past season. (I have more than one of these - pretty, but well, I don't need another hat.) So some of my losers have gone in for an overdye - some have been unraveled to make another attempt at wonderful and some have undergone several transitions to see if they could muster just a bit more customer appeal.
