Have you heard of The Violet Protest craftivist movement?

I'm not typically political, yet this red, blue, and purple felted witch hat was inspired by this public art project which plans to send 50 hand-crafted textile squares to each member of Congress. That's 26,750 squares! Each square combines equal amounts of red and blue to support the idea that the whole of our country is more vital than particular political parties.

Anyway, while it is a politically inspired hat, it is also a cool one that you could naturally wear as a Poll Worker, or to an Election Celebration or on January 20th for the Presidental Confirmation. Of course, you could instead wear it as a one-of-a-kind Halloween Witch. 

 

COLOR:

• The left side of the hat is crimson red. While the left side of the hat is a deep blue color. You can see this division on the center-back section of the hat. Whereas the front of the hat has various shades of purple.

 

SHAPE:

• The hat is pointed, like a classic witch's hat, with a rather narrow brim.

On the hat's front are four raised 'bridges' that span the dark chasm that spreads vertically down the front.  On each side of the hat, there are two 'craters' filled with sparkly sequins in the 'opposite party's color'

Admittedly, it's a literal depiction of healing the divisions affecting the United States circa 2020.


SIZE:

• The hat measures 21" / 53,5cm in height and 12" /  30.5cm in width, with the brim being 2" / 5 cm at its widest point.

•  It's a medium-weight thickness of felt and weighs 10.3 oz. / 291gm.

• Size MEDIUM: it fits a small to medium headsize - 21.75" / 53 cm to 22.5" / 57 cm.

Merino Wool, Viscose Fibers and Sequins

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 isn't a problem - just give it a shake. Due to this hat's complex construction, please limit to spot cleansing with a damp cloth. 

Of course, you can wear your hat in the rain.  After all, felt is made with soap and water, yet naturally resists water. However, if your hat gets drenched, please air dry it by sitting over a wine bottle, so that the brim can retain its shape.

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.
