This Turquoise Blue Felted Bucket Hat with Wings is what happens when I aimed for fishtails but achieved wings. Yes, it was supposed to look like a fancy goldfish tail. However, it rather looks more like butterfly wings. Nonetheless, it is a charming hat that is a little tall, but not too much. 

 

COLOR:

•  The turquoise color of this hat in actual life is much turquoise blue-green than it appears in the photos, where it looks more like Cerulean Blue. After staring at Wikipedia's turquoise colors page, I'm going to say that it is a bright version of 'Light Sea Green '- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turquoise_(color)

On the front of the hat, there are chartreuse-colored silk fibers felted in.

 

SHAPE:

•  This hat has a tapered, bucket-like shape and is top-stitched along the edge of the top. On the front of the hat are three raised felted 'bumps' that go down vertically like the buttons on a snowman. To the sides of this are asymmetrical stylised wings. There is a tiny hand-stitch on the tips of each wing to help hold them in place. 


SIZE:

• Headsize MEDIUM to LARGE: fits a range of 22.25" / 56.5 cm to 23" /  58.5 cm.

• The hat measures 7.5" / 19 cm in height and 10" / 25.5 cm in width.

• It is a medium thickness of felt and weighs 4.9 ounces / 140 grams.

 

Inside the hat, there's a wide purple-colored grosgrain ribbon with a drawstring that can be used to adjust the hat and make it smaller, if needed.

This hat is ready to ship.

Merino Wool and Silk Fibers

What is Felt?

Each FeltHappiness Hat is entirely handmade and created from soft Merino wool fibers using the technique of wet felting. It's an ancient and simple craft that takes patience and lots of kneading to shrink the fibers into a strong, flexible, and warm felt. To learn more, see HERE.

In addition to insulating, wool naturally resists water. Hence, your felted hat will keep you warm in chilly weather and dry in light rain. Plus, wool resists mildew, dirt, and fire!

It's magical stuff!

Care

Felt is an eco-friendly, fiber that is water and stain resistant. Dust is not 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.

For more information, see this Illustrated Guide.

Measuring Your Head

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 your 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!

Inches or centimetres are fine.
