Handmade wet felted claret merino wool cloche hat, with toning hand dyed silk felted into the wool. A sweet feminine vintage inspired style, with the brim cut shorter at the back, and a matching flower.
The brim is wired to retain it's distinctive swooping curved shape. The crown, however, can be squished and squashed and it'll pop back into shape.
Yes, wear it in the rain and snow. No, it won't shrink in the rain. Just dry it in shape after it gets wet.
As with all my hats, the fit is adjustable. There is an inner drawstring threaded into the felt itself - pull the tab to your size and wrap it around the button to secure. This means that this hat will fit most heads - from ap x 53 - 59 cm (ap x 21-23 inches)
I make all my hats by hand, turning unspun merino wool into a strong felt using traditional wet felting methods.
