Ombre Turquoise and White Cloche with 'Pom Pom'
This Ombre Turquoise and White Felted Cloche is a sculptural interpretation of a 'Pom Pom' beanie-style hat. However, it is its own unique hat, just like you are your own unique self.
Wear this hat knowing that you are rocking a One-of-a-Kind piece of wearable art. Added Benefit: it's made of soft, Merino wool which will keep you warm and help you keep up your Winter Fashion Style!
• The hat is bright turquoise blue which ombre-transitions to paler blue and then white at the very top. White shiny bamboo fibers add exciting contrast to the matte surface of the felted wool.
• The hat is a modified cloche style, with a turned-up, brim and a vase-like shape as it goes up. At the very top, there's the 'Pom Pom,' which is reminiscent of a perforated tea-light candle holder. There's machine topstitching in white encircling the Pom.
• The hat is entirely handmade and created from ultra soft, 18-micron quality, Merino wool fibers using the technique of wet felting. This ancient and simple craft takes patience and lots of kneading to shrink the fibers into strong, flexible and warm felt. In addition to insulating, wool naturally resists water; this hat will keep you warm in chilly weather and dry in light rain.
• The hat measures 9.5" / 24 cm in height and 10" / 25.5 cm in width.
• It is a medium thickness felt and weighs 4.1 oz. / 116 gm.
• Headsize LARGE: but, it fits a range of medium to large -- 22.5" / 57 cm to 23.75" / 60 cm.
• Inside the hat, there's a wide, gray grosgrain ribbon band with a drawstring casing. Use this to make the hat smaller.
• Felt is an eco-friendly, fiber that is water and stain resistant. Dust is not a problem - just give it a shake. This hat can be gently hand-washed in cool water. Rinse. Blot dry on a towel. Place small towel inside to shape. Then, air dry.
