This Sculptural, Purple Exclamation Mark Beret is certainly a quiet Statement Hat. It's a jewel-toned and elegant hat to wear to a wedding or celebration. Or perhaps just wear it to town!

It is wearable art that can be worn in various ways, with the exclamation point on the front or side. Turn the hat to whichever way suits you best.



The colors of this beret range in purple: from lavender to dark, plummy brown. The hat is made from soft Merino wool and has some grey Gotland-type wool, giving it a bit more surface texture.



And the shape? It is another one of my sculpted variations on a beret. There is a purple flange that spirals around the front edge of the hat. Right below this, I've shaped the wool to curve into a concave tear shape. I've top-stitched the front edge to add definition and have trimmed the hat with mauve-colored silk decoration, which has a beaded edge. A large purple bead is sewn below like an exclamation mark or half of a butterfly's wing. The bottom edge of the hat has been bound off in matching silk fabric.


• The hat measures 12" / 30.5 cm in width.

• It is a medium-thickness felt and weighs 2.6 oz. / 74 gm.

• Headsize SMALL : it fits a range of  -- 21.75" / 55 cm to 22" / 56 cm. 

• Inside the hat, there's a band of purple millinery grosgrain.

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!




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.

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.
