Effanem rolled wool-felt crusher hat found again

Thank you, Johnson Woolen Mills, home of the famous greenie wool work trousers and many other treasures. Johnson Woolen Mills, a Vermont institution since 1842, offers these hats, and in exact sizes and several colors. The printed catalogue shows two more colors than the on-line shop does, so it may pay to call. We settled on the traditional green. There are other headgear items out there labeled "crusher hats," but these are the hats that never wear out but are sometimes lost. These hats can be found on line from time to time offered as vintage items and for more than they can be bought new. I'm glad to see that Johnson still offers remnants suitable for making very heaby-duty braided rugs.
