Highland Style Green and Brown Felted Bucket Hat
This Green and Brown Felted Bucket Hat is inspired by the green hills of Scotland - can you see the tiny sheep? Supposedly, there are more sheep than people in Scotland. Where to wear this subtle but unique hat? Countryside walks could be your first choice. But, wearing the hat at a nearby mall would also work well.
• The hat's colors are inspired by the landscape, so there are various shades of green with taupe brown and white accents. There are lots of nice subtle textures on the right side of the hat that resembles sheep grazing in the distance.
• The hat has an upside-down bucket-like shape with a narrow 1-inch (2.5 cm) brim. As the top of the hat is topstitched, it also resembles a top hat.
• The hat is entirely handcrafted and created from soft Merino wool fibers using the technique of wet felting. This ancient and simple craft takes patience and lots of kneading to shrink the fibers into strong, flexible, and warm felt.
In addition to insulating, wool naturally resists water; this hat will keep you warm in chilly weather and dry in light rain.
• The hat measures 8" / 20 cm in height and 9" / 23 cm in width.
• It's a lighter weight thickness of felt and weighs 4.6 oz. / 130 gm.
• Size LARGE: it fits a range of headsizes -- 22.75" / 58 cm to 23" / 60 cm.
• Inside the hat, there's a wide gray-colored, grosgrain ribbon which can be adjusted to make the hat smaller.
• Care instructions: felt is an eco-friendly, fiber that is water and stain resistant. Dust isn't a problem - just give it a shake. This hat can be gently hand-washed in cool water. Rinse. Blot dry on a towel. Place a small towel inside to shape. Always air dry hand felted wearables.
Every head has its own unique size and shape which can be measured with a flexible tape measure, or even a piece of string.
Take the tape measure and encircle your head, just above the top of ears. Make sure that the tape measure goes over that small bump at the back of your head. Please don't pull it tightly. Leave a little 'ease' so that one finger can fit under the tape. An ear to ear measure can be helpful too.
Measure three times: it is surprising how it can vary!
