Ravenclaw tower provides spectacular views of the scenery surrounding the castle, so it’s natural that the blues of the sky match the hat. Merino wool, wet-felted with silk fibers, provides the base for this piece. Textiles and repurposed objects elevate the intellect for a wise but whimsical look. The hat is worn like a headband using a fine elastic cord sewn into the base and comes with a “How to Wear” instructional card. Modeled by Elena Reinhold and photo by Brett McCleary.
