The Turquoise Purple Dolphin Dragon Wizard Hat is a happy mashup of art history, pop culture, and movies. At your next costume party, entertain your friends by having them guess 'who' or 'what'! 

Here's the cheat sheet: Baroque dolphins from Italian fountains, a certain monster from a Pixar movie, and all those cinematic dragons with slitted eyes.

Not that I was aware of the first two influences until afterwards. But, that's how making stuff goes -  sometimes, the materials and hands reveal the subject.

 

COLOR:

• The color of this hat is turquoise blue, shifting to purple at the top. Only in retrospect did I realize that it's the same colors as Sulley from 'Monsters Inc'. In addition to Merino wool, there are shiny blue silk fibers felted in under the brim and along the spine. 

 

SHAPE:

•  The hat is extra tall and has a 'barbed', dragon-style tail at the point. On the back of the hat, dragon fins travel up (or down) the spine. On the front of the hat, the brim turns upward, not unlike that of a dolphin's 'smile'. Above the mouth are two circular-shaped 'nostrils'. And above these are the very large and iridescent eyes of the creature. And while I looked at fierce dragons paintings, my interpretation seems rather friendly. This is probably due to that the eyes are not quite symmetrical in alignment. 

 

 

 

SIZE:

• Headsize LARGE: fits a range of 22.75" / 58 cm to 23.5" /  60 cm.

• The hat measures 22" / 56 cm in height and 13" / 33 cm in width.

• It is a medium thickness of felt and weighs 8.5 ounces / 242 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 slightly smaller, if needed.

Merino Wool, Silk Fibers, and Iridescent Fabric

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.
