thanks Elaine, i used Fishing rod glove for the outer Brim(stuffed) its a great material to work with has a straw like criss cross weave. Very lightweight. I also used for the bows although it can be manipulated into any shape and I think I definitely discovered something great, especially good for millinery. My husband works for a sports apparel company called Under Armour, they  revolutionized the sporting industry with their moisture wicking material ( before that everyone wore cotton) so I am always on the look our for interesting non conventional materials to work with, the added bonus with this is that there is no wiring or blocking involved. It holds a great shape. You should try it.
