A solitary beach in the winter is a special thing. The sand, sometimes mixed with snow underfoot strangely feels stiff but the same. The colors are muted, yet raw and real. The wind bites at your nose and the waves continue to hypnotize you with their rhythm. Winter beaches are often a place of solitude, reflection and beauty. This hat reminds me of a winter’s beach and would protect you from the elements if you were to wear it there.

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 cloche is perfect for keeping the weather off your hair while covering your ears in cold weather. There is also plenty of room in the hat to house a large volume of hair!
This hat fits a very large head, 24.0-25.0″ 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.
One must maintain a little bit of summer, even in the middle of winter.
