~ Adopted ~ Nunofelted French Blue Hat
Sorry, but this Jaunty, Angled Brim, Nunofelted, French Blue Hat has already been adopted. If you would like your own version of this hat, please contact me.
This French Blue Nunofelted Brimmed Hat is actually a Spring or Fall hat. It is super lightweight (compared to my heavier felted hats). It's lightness comes from being made of only two layers of Merino wool nunofelted through hand-dyed cotton fabric.
• A delicious French Blue.
• Angled brim with a wonderful jaunty air.
• 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!
• Headsize LARGE: it's a medium sized hat and fits a range of 22" / 56 cm to 22.75" / 58 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.
