Spring Wire - Au
Spring wire is one of the most basic materials in hat making and has a multitude of uses. It comes in a range of sizes.
Spring Wire is most often used in millinery for creating shape and reinforcing hat brims, and for constructing hat frames.
Beyond brims, millinery wire can be used to create extravagant frameworks for headpieces, to give feathers the illusion of floating, or as a stem for a handmade flower.
It can also be wrapped with tulle or other fabric to give the wire a foundation for sewing, or to match a design.
Steel spring wire can also be used to create flexible brims and hat shapes.
