Made with some fairly raw wool from http://www.etsy.com/shop/wildwoolfarm in shades of white/cream/brown and some recycled sari silk yarn. I really love the texture of minimally processed wool + recycled silk

beautiful...

I never used sari yarn in any clothing before as I find it to be a bit itchy...but I can see from your hat that a little bit sure adds to the texture and beauty of the hat...and placed properly, it would be fine!

wonderful that you showcased the yarns so well...

Actually, what I found out with one of the first hats that I made using sari silk is that it stretches...A LOT and it does not stretch back! For that reason I try to make sure I have more wool or other fiber in relation to the silk in the hat & I also try not to put a lot of the silk around the brim, since it will get stretched out first.
