Description

Quirky, surreal felted hat in pale blue grey, evocative of a winter sky with clouds, raindrops and birds. Rather poetic and unique

This wet-felted hat has a wonderfully textured surface reminiscent of the winter sky -- at least here in England. Look up and see droplets of rain and often sea gulls, with wings outstretched, hovering. In fact, one is never far from the sea in Britain; the furthest distance supposedly is 70 miles (113 km).

This hat's cloudy sky texture was created by layering white wool nubs on top of pale blue grey Merino wool fibers. Sort of like raindrops and clouds. The gulls are hinted at with grey bamboo fibers. The inside of the hat is a brighter sky blue, to remind that the sun will return. These brighter fibers show through on the outside of the hat. The nature of wet felting is that fibers intermingle to create richer colors.

The shape of the hat is quite curious and almost surreal - perhaps a bit like a bowler which swallowed a cloud? Wonder if Magritte ever painted that?

On the outer brim there is millinery wire to help hold the shape. This is covered with grey millinery grosgrain ribbon. A matching millinery grosgrain ribbon has been hand sewn on the inside.

This is a small to medium sized hat which covers the tops of the ears. It fits a head size range of 21 3/4 – 22.5 inches (55.24 - 57.15 cm).

Hat height is approximately 7 inches (17.78 cm) at tallest cloud.
The brim is fairly narrow, about an inch wide (2.54 cm).
It is a mid-weight thickness of felt and weighs 3.5 ounces (99 grams).

Care instructions: Wool felt is naturally water resistant and can take rain. However, this hat should not be immersed in water because of the millinery wire edging the brim. Sponge gently with a damp cloth, if needed.

Come on! Try this unique hat. You will feel quite chic and quirky at the same time.

My newest purchase is a beauty in an array of purple hues, with all sorts of different textures and shapes. The lovely elegant waves in front embellished with silk, the angled sides , the rounded top and that flip of a brim around the back.

Juliane's hats are amazing and so much fun to wear.

FAQs

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!
Inches or centimetres is fine.
Most FeltHappiness hats can be washed.

Merino wool is a natural fiber that is water and stain resistant.
