This is fabric I love--it has a beautiful, variegated pattern and it is soft brushed cotton, but it wrinkles like hell and so I have never used it for clothes. But this works perfectly. I made 2--one to wash and one for the pitcher to wear.
So far it has worked fine. 48 hours later the tea seems fresh and clear. The hat is cold but not wet. It protects the drink but also allows a bit of respiration so it doesn’t sweat. Perfect.
