This Light Blue Felted Bucket Hat with Chevron Pattern is a straightforward and simple hat with a simple shape and minimal patterning - except for the front, which is decorated with two sparkly chevron shapes. It's an example of a minimalist approach mixed with a dash of embellishment - perfect for multiple hat-wearing occasions. 

 

COLOR:

•  This hat is a pale baby blue with touches of darker blue and celery green. On the front of the hat, there are pieces of Nuno felted in aqua-blue, iridescent fabric. In the making of the hat, the wool shrinks, whereas the fabric does not. This results in the pleasing crinkled texture of the chevron shapes. 

 

SHAPE:

•  This hat has a tapered, bucket-like shape with a narrow brim. The tip of the hat angles downward. Along the back edge of the tip, there is a half-crescent of topstitching. 


SIZE:

• Headsize MEDIUM to LARGE: fits a range of 22.25" / 56.5 cm to 23.25" /  59 cm.

• The hat measures 9.5" / 24 cm in height and 10.5" / 27 cm in width.

• It is a medium thickness of felt and weighs 4.7 ounces / 143 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.

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.
