They cost 15 pounds each. Doesnt matter which shape.

I will go this year with a lot of medieval stuff to Barley Hall in York for : St Nicholas' Fayre Medieval Market (November 24th - 27th)

So we can meet there OR I can send you hats ... but money you can send to someone in England (I have a lot of friend there ) this will minimaze your costs a bit.

Hi there,
Its not my period at all, and the refference i want to tell you about is later, but i hope it is ok.
There is an old book here in Denmark, wich has pictures of a noblemans estates and propperties. It is called Jacob Ulfeldts Jordebog. It has illustrations. One of those shows a peassant who is seeding a field. He wears a black tall fashionable hat wich could be a wool or felt hat. And he wears a ruff two. The book is late 16th century, so i know it is two late for your question. But i always wondered did a peassant really have the money to wear such outfits, fashionable hat and a ruff? Or did the drawer of the illustrations excagerate to burst!
The world is in need of beauty! Embroider!

On the eight day, god created costumes and reenactors!

Skev, the charges are not high. They are blinking extortionate. Roll on one currency please!

And the hats are blooming great although I would also point people towards Crafty Beggars who do some nice stuff.

Here I am wearing the one I had made as a copy of the one in the background on Robert Campin's Mérode Altarpiece.

I really should either wear no coif, or learn to wear it more tidily so I don't look such a divot.
