~ Adopted ~ Gray Felted Beret with Crater on Top
Sorry, but this Gray Felted Beret with Crater on Top has already been adopted. If you would like your own version of this beret, please contact me.
This Gray Felted Beret with Crater on Top is quite subtle but has an unusual and striking look.
• The colors of the beret are neutral gray with various shades of gray circling the crater on the top of the hat. Lines of darker gray, bamboo fibers are felted in for decoration.
• This hat has an asymmetrical shape with topstitching encircling the tip.
• 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 4" / 10 cm in height and 11" / 28 cm in width.
• It is a medium thickness of felt and weighs 2.4 ounces / 66 grams.
• Headsize MEDIUM: fits a range of 22" / 56 cm to 22.5" / 57 cm.
• 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.
• This hat is ready to ship.
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.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
