Bycocket Hunter

Dear Loyally Luaithrend,

Bycocket hats being de rigueur this hunting season, I absolutely -must- have one. All of my friends have purchased theirs from the same merchant, who crafts them from a lovely rabbit velour. But I, alas, have sneezing fits if ever I should brush against the fur of the lapin! Should I instead purchase one in wool, though it is scarce half the cost, or shall I sneeze and suffer in the name of fashion? Perhaps I should buy two in wool, and thus atone for my frugality? (I fear my husband will not see this as a necessary expense). Will anybody even notice that my hat is but the byproduct of a humble sheep?
