Gudrun (taupe with pecan waves)
I nice stiff but light Swiss braid of synthetic and rayon fibers. It makes a nice wide brim hat and travels very well as will not get mishapen as it is packed around in a suitcase. Three inch brim in the back and 5 inch in the front.
Gudrun is one of the sisters in Women in Love by DH Lawrence. These women were interesting to me in college when I read the book as they seemed to have so much fun with striped stockings and interseting clothing descriptions.
