Description

Handmade wet felted rust coloured merino wool cloche hat. It has a vintage feel to it, with an asymmetrical brim and a scrunched crown. A large matching felted flower adds drama to the hat.

A soft, warm and lightweight hat, it can be folded and squished - it will 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 (in this case, scrunch the creases!)

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.

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 approx 53 - 59 cm (approx 21-23 inches)

I make all my hats by hand, turning unspun merino wool into a strong felt using traditional wet felting methods.

Inspiration

This was adapted from a Russian masterclass I found online. (Eastern bloc felters are amazing!) It starts life as an elongated egg shape, which is then folded to form a double layered hat. I made the upper part longer than the inner, so that I could add interesting folds and creases.
