Asymmetrical red, felt hat for a woman who would like a bit of wearable art!
This pointy hat is a one of a kind statement that is a little bit Lady Gaga and a little bit Mrs Claus.

In addition to having a passion for flowers, I love leaves. This love extends beyond those autumn beauties, with their vibrant colors. Spring and summer leaves are just as compelling. I’ve a collection by my dish drain board to keep me company as I do the washing up. The angular shape if this deep red hat is derived from a love of holly leaves. Don’t you just love their points? And their shine? And while the hat is not overtly Christmas – y, as there is no green, it still can be worn with a jaunty, knowing wink throughout the year.

The color is a sophisticated blend of deep red, burgundy and cherry, with bits of silk fabric and fibers nuno felted in. The felt is handmade by me out of soft Merino wool. Three hand felted balls (holly berries!) decorate the center front of the hat. Each ball has a flat red sequin and a tiny red bead. They are hand sewn on with tiny stitches.

The weight of the felt is lightweight – you shouldn’t sweat indoors while wearing this hat!
It weighs 1.4 ounces / 40 grams to be exact!

It measures around 22 inches (55.8 cm) across if you stretch out the longest pointy bits.
It is around 10 ½ inches (26.67 cm) in diameter across the top.

The hat is on the small to average size – 21 ½ - 22 inch headsize (54.6-55.8 cm)

Care instructions: this particular hat might be washed if needed, but it will need a bit of shaping when damp. Hand wash in cold water with a bit of soap. Gently blot dry with towel. Then dry with a rolled towel inside to shape. Arrange the points so that three on the left side go up and the rest curve around the face..

Frequently asked questions about FeltHappiness

Head size:
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 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 3 times: it is surprising how it can vary!
