~Adopted~ Kawaii Orange Slice Felted Beret
This charming Kawaii Orange Slice Felted Wool Beret is so bright that it will bring some zest to your winter. Pair it with other bright colors in your wardrobe - a chartreuse green coat or perhaps, lemon yellow scarf. As wool is a natural fiber that breathes, you can also wear the hat indoors.
• This hat is a bright, Marigold Orange color with various shades of sunny citrus tones on top. Radiating from the center are white lines indicating the segments of a f sliced orange fruit.
• This hat is disc-shaped and resembles an orange that has been sliced in half. The hat curves downward to the left side. The edge of the brim has been topstitched to add crispness.
Inside the hat, there is a brilliant, turquoise-colored, grosgrain millinery ribbon that finishes off the edge.
• This is a handcrafted hat created from a 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 cool weather and dry in light rain. Plus, wool resists mildew, dirt, and fire! It's magical stuff!
• The hat measures 5" / 12.5 cm in height and 13" / 33 cm in width.
• It is a medium-light thickness of felt and weighs 2.5 ounces / 71 grams.
• Headsize MEDIUM SMALL: it's small-sized hat and fits a range of 21.75" / 55 cm to 22.25" / 56.5 cm.
• 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.
• This hat can be gently hand-washed in cool 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 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 centimeters are fine.
