  Hi

Part of the problem may be the actual wool.  Not all wool felts and wool 
generally felts in different ways.  Navajo-churro doesn't felt 
easily.  I've found when using home-spun wools you have to check to see if 
it felts easily.  The softer more crimpy fibers will felt more easily than 
the hairier sheep.

The problem with the hat if it's not commercial fiber may be that the fiber 
doesn't lend itself to felting.
