Whatchamacallit 175: Buffalo Wool Hat

Buffalo Wool Hat

I bought this hat from a shop in Laramie, Wyoming. I have no idea how long ago, how much, or which shop.

The shop did have a small selection of goods made from buffalo wool, including coasters, which I keep in my living room. The hat was also there. Given the difficulties of obtaining buffalo wool, everything was expensive, but the hat is incredibly and wonderfully soft.

Except that it never gets cold enough in Berlin to justify wearing it – I tend to wear less expensive hats when I need this kind of hat.

When I removed the hat from its home – on my metal man – I discovered that I use the hat to store three other things: two buttons from my Kent Monkman collection and a pair of solar eclipse glasses – which I last used in 2017. That was not the same trip when I bought this hat; I think I bought the hat a few years before.


During the Covid-19 crisis, I am going to try and make a point of writing a blog post about an object in my home.

We’ll see how long this lasts.
