These past few weeks have been turning very autumnal. With the thought of long rainy days ahead of us, I started work on my waxed cotton rain hats.
As you can see waxed cotton is fully waterproof and perfect for those miserable days. I make a large range of rain hats, perfect for dog walkers, and staying dry. Waxed cotton can often be cold and stiff when first worn, so I add an extra layer of cotton bump into the crown to add extra comfort and warmth.
This year I wanted to make some waxed hats that had a pop of colour. I managed to find a very good quality waxed fabric that came in a multitude of bright, warming colours.
All of my rain hats are made using a high quality waxed cotton with an antique finish.
