Felted Fedora Hat - Creating Texture with Novelty Yarn

Ladies Fedora - 57cms
Fine Merino tops and acrylic and mohair novelty yarn
  I had promised to post some more samples of textures, but  I decided to try some textures on this little fedora instead. 

After laying down graduated colours using merino tops I selected a number of novelty yarns to be gathered ready for my texture.  Most novelty yarns have a cotton thread through the centre that can be gently pulled to create interesting effects.   Some yarns were laid down in lengths while others were cut into little caterpillars.  I was pleasantly surprised at the range of texture that emerged.
