Hi Sally! The" video" is here: http://www.hatshapers.com go the very bottom of the page and click on the Bell Cloche Free Online Hat Shapers "How-To" Pop-Up Slideshows! It is not really a video, sorry for the confusion.

Where do you purchase the hat shapers? Can you use anything else?

Here is where I buy the hat shapers I use: http://www.hatshapers.com/ Other people use many differnt things from ballons to balls to flat resists, the hatshapers are best for consistant results though.

I just joined craftsy and I love hats. I took a class in making hats almost 35 years ago but did not keep up with it. I am getting ready to retire and I might just start again. Where do you get your merino wool? i simply love what you have done.

Hi Mary, I get my merino wool from lots of different places but mostly on etsy. I really like WC Mercantile for really inexpensive wool.
