Baaa Baaa Black Sheep

I got this submission a while ago, and I honestly don't know why I haven't shared these sooner.  The more I look at these hats, the cuter they seem.  The shop the hats come from is also quite special, but I will let them explain. 
From the lips of Nora, Sam, and the herd at Little Hill Woolworks:
"Little Hill Woolworks is a collaborative of 2 humans and 7 sheep (recently we've begun working with a neighboring alpaca farmer too).  Farmer/felting-guru Samantha Stone raises sheep and wet-felts their wool, then designer/milliner Nora Swan makes our hats, baby booties, fascinators etc. from them.  Our whole process is  "ultra local" because it all happens on our 100-acre Vermont farm from the grass up, using soap, water, and steam (and a lot of time & effort:)  Our wool hats and booties come with a picture and bio of the sheep that contributed the wool!"
