Black and Gold Wizard Hat for Pittsburgh or Hufflepuff Fans
Do you bleed Black -n- Gold? If so, this Black and Gold Wizard Hat is just right for you.
When I moved to Pittsburgh five years ago, one of the facts that struck me was the city's colors. According to Wikipedia, "Pittsburgh is the only city in the United States in which all professional sporting teams share the same colors." So, if you are the biggest Steelers, Pirates, Penguins or River Hounds fan, then this hat will do for all your team appreciation.
But, perhaps you live elsewhere and just adore this exciting bumblebee / Hufflepuff color combination. That's good too!
• The hat's colors are black with golden yellow trim.
• The hat's shape is unusual. It's rounded on top with a yellow banding that goes up in an inverted 'V' - similar to the point of a heart or a Gothic arch from a medieval building. The overall silhouette is reminiscent of the helmets worn by Spanish conquistadors or perhaps something worn by Star Wars' Queen Padmé Amidala.
• This is a handcrafted hat created from soft, 18-micron quality, Merino wool roving using the technique of wet felting. This ancient and simple craft takes patience and lots of kneading by hand to shrink the wool fibers into a strong, flexible and warm felt.
In addition to insulating, wool naturally resists water. Hence, this hat will keep you warm in chilly weather and dry in light rain. Plus, wool resists mildew, dirt, and fire! It's magical stuff!
• The hat measures 9" / 23 cm in height and 11" / 28 cm in width.
• It is a heavy thickness of felt and weighs 8.7 oz. / 248 gm!
• Headsize EXTRA LARGE : it's a large sized hat and fits a range of (23" / 58.5 cm to 24" / 61 cm). There's an adjustable ribbon on the inside.
• Felt is an eco-friendly, fiber that is water and stain resistant. Dust isn't a problem - just give it a shake. Spot clean with a clean, damp cloth if needed. Air dry.
FINDING YOUR HEAD SIZE
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 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 centimeters are fine.
