Make your own wool poor boy cap just in time for the cold weather! Sheila, our resident milliner, will teach you how to sew up your very own cap; sized to fit you.
You will customize your hat to your own personal style by varying design elements (crown depth, fullness of cap etc.) and of course, you choose your fabrics; we have the perfect boiled wool in a selection of colours great for the upcoming season.  Then coordinate the lining with a super soft flannel.
