Description

This hat is handmade felt.  The silk fabric is fused with raw merino wool in a process of wet felting called nuno felting.  Once the fabric/felt hood is created, it is blocked over a vintage heated block and shaped by hand.

This hat fits a large head, 23.0-23.75″ in circumference.  If you have any questions about fit, please contact me.

Spot clean with a wet cloth.  If you need to saturate the hat by washing it, do so with a gentle soap for wool.  Shape on your head then let dry.

“He looked at her the way all women want to be looked at by a man”. – F. Scott Fitzgerald
