Sally researches extant hats in museums and draws on documentary and pictorial evidence to develop her patterns for these hats. Most of the hand-knitted ones are also heavily fulled to give structure and solidity.
A few of her designs are also available as downloadable knitting patterns via Payhip if you prefer to knit your own.
NEXT ORDER DATE: The shop will next open for custom hat orders on Monday December 4 2023 around 10am GMT (UK time)and will shut again as soon as Sally has enough hat orders to keep her busy for the next two-three months. Prices are starting to alter to reflect minimum wage per hour and the recent sharp increases in the cost of high quality yarn. Please remember these are hand made items, custom made to last, using specialist skills and experience, and a typical Tudor split brim hat for example can easily represent ten to twelve hours work.
If you find the listings all showing as 'out of stock; please keep an eye on this notification or on our Facebook page or Instagram for updates on the next ordering opportunity. You can still click on listings whilst the shop is shut to see descriptions, but be aware that things like colour choices and size drop-downs may not show up. All hats are custom knit and any modifications you may want are generally available.
Museums, Film & Theatre wardrobes etc, please get in touch so I can schedule in time for your project.
