This hat is extra long, similar to some of the round caps I make.  It covers the ears and rests somewhere around the eyebrows like a flapper style cloche.  It's made entirely from luxuriously soft kid mohair.  I've allowed a few tendrils of the curly locks to peek through, providing a nice textured look.  The shinier stripes and the flower are smooth, very soft tussah silk.  As I've mentioned here and there throughout this site, tussah silk is also called wild silk, which means that it is gathered in the wild, not farmed, and after the moth has left it's cocoon.  Farmed silk, generally called bombyx silk, involves boiling the cocoons while the moth is still inside, which why I never use it.
