I made a second hat from Cihat, may end up being an annual tradition. Mom scorched hers trying to dry it too close to fire. We now know for a fact that wool doesn't burn...So if she wants another one she can buy it on my etsy shop. Only the first one's free. Who am I kidding, we all know what Doris wants, Doris gets.
So here is the source animal, what the wool (roving) looked like pre - spun and the hat.
