In a Monastery Garden Tam
This is a hat for the Venerable Bede or Caedmon to wear on a sunny day for a walk in the monastery garden. It has the flowers of the garden reflected underneath and the top is ornamented with Celtic curlicues to appease the heavens. Again it's handspun, dyed with madder, red sandalwood, safflower and indigo.
