Ursula (turquoise and natural)

Ursula (turquoise and natural)

Brim is almost 4 inches in front and 3 in the back as I bring it in as I go around the back to shorten it up.   I like the way that looks, with the uneven brim, and it helps the back on hit in the car or on a jacket.   The turquoise is a tubular horsehair braid I order from Switzerland.   It holds up well and is a nice stiff synthetic straw.  I usually make the crowns out of a natural fiber on these as it is more comfortable and breathes well, this one is a hemp straw crown.

    Ursula is one of the sisters in DH Lawrence's Women in Love.  A book I adored in college.
