Sorry, but this Nunofelted Cowl has been adopted.


Introducing the Nunofelted Cowl, inspired by the captivating beauty of Irish walls. This unique accessory combines the art of nunofelting with the rich history and textures found in traditional Irish architecture. 


Handcrafted with care and attention to detail, this cowl showcases a harmonious blend of soft merino wool and delicate fabric. The nunofelting technique creates a seamless fusion between the wool fibres and the fabric, resulting in a lightweight, breathable, and luxurious texture.

Drawing inspiration from the ancient stone walls that dot the Irish countryside, the cowl features intricate patterns and textures reminiscent of the weathered stones and moss-covered surfaces. The earthy tones chosen for this piece evoke a sense of connection to Ireland's natural beauty and heritage.

Versatile and stylish, the Nunofelted Cowl can be worn in various ways, providing warmth and adding a touch of elegance to any outfit. 



• This felted cowl is grey with a slightly greenish cast, with multicoloured grey 'Stones' made from natural, Irish-raised Jacob wool. In addition, there is white patterning from Margilan silk and ramie fibres to represent lichen and mortar. Dustings of lime green and peach viscose fibres give the illusion of lichen and moss growing on a stone wall. On the inside, there is hand-dyed, jade green silk fabric.


• When laid flat, the cowl is trapezoidal in shape.

• Inside, there's a FeltHappiness label and a care tag.



• The cowl measures 11" / 26 cm along the top,  15" / 38 cm along the base, and 14" / 35.5 cm in length. 

• It is a lightweight cowl: 3 ounces / 85 grams.

•  It should fit most people.

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.

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.


While Ireland is full of sheep, sadly, the shearings of Irish sheep are less frequently used. Multiple reasons exist: one is because our local wools do not have the softness of Merino wool. Consequently, farmers don't receive much money for the fibre. Shockingly, it is considered a waste product.

Using locally-sourced materials can have a positive impact on both the environment and the local economy. By supporting local farmers and utilising readily available materials, we help to reduce transportation emissions and promote a more sustainable supply chain.

Here at FeltHappiness Hats, I aim to increase the amount of Irish-raised fibre in my creations to be more sustainable AND still create the unique hats that you love!

As of 2023, every hat in my new collections* has a layer of Irish-raised wool.

In the GLO Collection, a natural dark brown, Jacob wool that is sandwiched between layers of black Merino wool. While in the Celtic Stone Crown Collection, shades of grey Jacob wool are used to make the 'stones'. The wool from both of these collections comes from Kerry Woolen Mills.

(*Not including the GLO Beanie and Cowl styles because they require fewer layers of wool.)
