This hat is handmade felt.  The silk fabric is fused with raw wool in a process of wet felting called nuno felting.  Once the fabric/felt hood is created, it is stiffened and blocked over a vintage wooden block to shape.  The brim is first wired, then an elastic inner band sewn by hand, helping with the comfort of the hat and to keeps it on your head.  The outer velour band will also help fit the hat to your head.

This hat fits a small head, 21.5-22″ wide.  If you have questions about fit, please contact me.
