'Ocean' felted wool hat - 'The Crush' - designed to pack flat

'Ocean' felted wool hat - 'The Crush' - designed to pack flat
£49.00 1 Available
Love this


The ever popular crush hat is so called because it packs flat. Fabulous when you are shopping - just flatten the hat and pop it in your bag. I use mine instead of an umbrella! This hat colour is called 'ocean' - a dark bluey teal.

(Yes, wear it in the rain and snow. No, it won't shrink in the rain. Just dry it flat to retain the shaping.)

This is also a fabulously versatile shape hat. Play with the brim to get different looks. It seems to suit most people!

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)

The flower is attached to the hat with a hat pin, so it's position can be changed, or removed and used as a lapel pin

My facebook page has a video all about crush hats (

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

This design is currently available in over 20 colours - see made to order listing for details.


Like many of my designs, this hat was inspired in a 'what would happen if ...?' moment. What would happen if I kept putting folds into the design until I ran out of hat to fold?
