New hats on the way

I am back in my workshop and planning fleece and tweed combinations for new hats.  Excitingly, I have more new tweed woven from the yarns of my lovely flock, so am working out which of my sheep will most complement this.  

I'm really hoping I can use wool from Clement.  I have several hoods already made from his fleece, just itching to be teamed up with some brim fabric and made into crowns.

Here is Clement, for those who'd like to meet him:

My hats are a time-consuming business at around 25 hours of making time for each one.  Hopefully I'll remember to post about their progress, but in the meantime, here is a short video showing some of the earliest stages in the making of one of my hats.
