Dramatic Felted Pink Grapefruit Hat
This Dramatic Felted Pink Grapefruit Hat is as delicious as it is head-turning. In its beautifully playful pinkness, it is also rather Kawaii in style!
• The hat is pink and white, with peach overtones. There is white silk fibers felted on to the tip to resemble grapefruit segments.
• The hat is shaped like an asymmetrical beret and sits at an angle on the head. It is rather Dior New Look in silhouette.
• This is a handcrafted hat created from a superfine, 18-micron, 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!
• Headsize MEDIUM: fits a range of 22" / 56 cm to 22.5" / 57 cm.
• The hat measures 3" / 7 cm in height and 15" / 38cm in width.
• It is a medium thickness of felt and weighs 8 ounces / 225 grams.
• Inside the hat, there's a grosgrain ribbon with a drawstring to make the hat smaller, if needed.
• Felt is an eco-friendly, fiber that is water and stain-resistant. Dust isn't a problem - just give it a shake.
• This hat can be gently hand-washed in cold water. Rinse. Blot dry on a towel. Place a small towel inside to shape. Always air dry hand-felted wearables.

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.
