Felt hunters hats

Post by zauberdachs »

Does anyone know a good source of early medieval "felt hunters hats"?

I require 12th/13th century headwear for Lanark and think most headwear I have is 14th/15th century.

cheers

I can make most styles of felt hat given enough warning and a clear image of what you need. I do have a bit of a backlog at the moment though :oops:

I think you will be able to buy one there:

IIRC, the crafty beggars usually have some for sale, they hand make them as living history. (Assuming i havnt got the name mixed up with someone else)

Failing that, I can lend you a coif, or you can make one yourself, all you need is needle, thread, and maybe 3 or 4 square feet of linen.

With you now. What colour and weight of felt did you want? I have to get my felting head on for another commission soon and these arent particularly hard to make, I could see if i could add you to the list :D

excellent!

I'm really an ideal customer as I'm not very fussy at all. I would imagine a thick felt would be sturdy and water proof while a blue or red colour would suit my outfit ;)
