Linen & Silk Fibre Hats

This ebook explains how to use quite a small length of inexpensive linen ‘scrim’ (the coarse cloth often used by window cleaners) to create a one-piece hat and a separate brim. Having successfully used linen (it is quite similar to sinamay to work with, although a little heavier), we turned out attention to silk fibres, often used in paper-making. Now you can learn the quite different techniques needed to create a very light-weight but beautiful hat from silk fibres, and how to make a crown for your linen brim – or any other kind of brim.
