There are so many lovely textures on this Royal Blue Top Hat, that you might be tempted to take it off your head just to admire it.

While the tall top hat shape of this hat is serious (or associated with some serious folks, such as the Pilgrims and Abraham Lincoln), the decorations on the hat are full of organic movement and are rather playful! Another plus is that this hat will keep your ears warm!


COLOR:

• This felted hat is a Royal blue with red undertones from the inner layers of wool. The underside of the brim is striped in blue, red, light purple, and lime green.

Compared to a typical FeltHappiness Hat, this one is more embellished. On the front is an oval of hand marbleized cotton fabric. This fabric repeats the colors of the underside of the brim. On the right side of the hat, there's a wonderful texture created from nunofelted silk fabric. Nunofelting is when fabric and wool are felted together, and this technique creates fantastic textures.

Additionally, a curving, hand-stitched line of Sashiko stitched, maroon-colored, cotton embroidery floss wanders from the cotton oval on the front to the right side. Around the tip, there's red topstitching to help keep the hat's shape. 


SHAPE:

• The hat has a top hat silhouette that tapers inward as it goes up - like one of those hats worn by the Pilgrims in America.


SIZE:

• The hat measures 8" / 20 cm in height and 11" / 28 cm in width.

• It is a medium thickness felt and weighs 6.1 oz. / 174 gm.

• Headsize LARGE: but, it fits a range of medium to large -- 22.25" / 56.57 cm to 23" / 58.8 cm. 

Inside the hat, there's a wide, gray grosgrain ribbon band with a drawstring casing. Use this to make the hat smaller.

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.

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!

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.

Sustainability

Wool is a highly sustainable and eco-friendly material. Sheep grow their wool continuously and need to be shorn regularly for their own health and comfort. This means that wool is a renewable resource, and the production of wool does not harm the animal.

In addition, wool is biodegradable, which means that it will naturally decompose over time and will not accumulate in landfills or oceans. This makes wool a great alternative to synthetic materials that take centuries to decompose and contribute to environmental pollution.

Moreover, wool is an excellent insulator, which means that it can help to reduce energy consumption by keeping us warm in the winter and cool in the summer. It is also naturally flame-resistant and has antibacterial properties, making it a safe and hygienic choice for clothing and bedding.

Overall, wool is a sustainable and natural product with many benefits for both the environment and consumers. FeltHappiness Hats uses wool into our products to promote more sustainable and ethical fashion practices.
