White and Red Fedora with Gold Circles
This white and red fedora is rather glamorous. It would look chic worn with a white raincoat -- or a red one. It's blingy gold circles will help brighten your spirit when the weather is dull.
• The inside of this fedora is made from red, Merino wool. The outside is made from white wool. During the feltmaking process, the fibers intertangle and combine to create a beautiful reddish-white color which is not quite pink. In addition, shiny white bamboo fibers are felted in and catch the light. Lastly, adorning the front, are two white rings with shiny, gold-fabric centers.
• The hat is shaped like a fedora and has a rounded tip with two topstitched pleats that encircle the back half of the hat.
• The hat is entirely handmade and created from ultra soft, 18-micron quality, Merino wool fiber 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 rain.
• The hat measures 8" / 20 cm in height and 10" / 25.5 cm in width. The brim is 2" / 5 cm at its widest part.
• It is a medium thickness felt and weighs 5.7 oz. / 161 gm.
• Headsize LARGE: and, it fits a range of medium to large -- 22.5" / 57 cm to 23" / 58.5 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.
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!
