I made a Celtic Cap out of 100% wool and need to block it. How does one go about doing this? I've googled it and haven't come up with much information. I'd appreciate any help. TIA:)

I ussually soak the item in water + soap for awhile, then rinse it in a couple more soaks, and lay it out to dry.  Since its a hat you migh need to block it on a towel ha youve smushed up to help keep the hat shape.

Thank you both, very much. I'm eager to get this hat blocked and on it's way out the door before I wind up keeping it:)
