CURLY FLAP FEZ - "Cherry Whipped" wool felt hat
Mens LARGE beanie
Womens LARGE to XL cloche
OOAK in Crimson and Cream

The Fez -- a brimless, cone-shaped, flat-topped hat made of wool felt. The "Shriner's" version of the fez is just one of its forms, in a traditional red. It had different names and shapes in medieval Persia, Egypt and Turkey.

My fezzes are unique and different, since I added ear flaps, kinda like mutton chops (pun intended). Being Norwegian, we have a history of boiling wool, so fulling came naturally to me.

"Cherry Whipped": This one has a larger, curlier top than some. The main part is from an ivory Scottish wool sweater. Crimson wool, from a mid-east kaftan, is used for the top and ear flaps.

Glossy red and beige contrast serging threads brighten the seams and earflaps, which have the red on the outside and beige on the inside. The crown of this hat curls in & out, in a very unfezlike profile, outlined by the beige and navy threads. It has a larger crown, which gives it a charming bonnet effect.

This "fulled" wool, which I cut from knitted sweaters, is serged together with contrasting and complementary threads. Each of these is unique, one-of-a-kind, since the final wool directed the fez's shape and size. This is my own unique design, from my own imagination, and I've seen nothing else like it.

Crown: 6 " (15 cm) high
Diameter at top: 8-1/2" (21.5 cm)
Circumference at base: 28" (71 cm)

fits heads LARGE to EXTRA LARGE (but shown on an XS head!)
My head is a medium size 7 [22" (56 cm)] around above the ears, and it fits too loosely for it to stay on my head. The wool has a natural friction with your hair, so larger hats can still sit comfortably on smaller heads, but not that small.

Fulling : the process of melding and shrinking an already knitted or woven article. Felt is made from raw wool that has not been woven. I fulled the knits myself, from older sweaters (mostly), in a very hot soap wash, so they are probably almost sterile!

These can be washed, cold & delicate, in Woolite. And be sure to keep the moths away from this pure wool!

And of course my entire home is smoke-free, but I do have one kitty. She doesn't sleep on the hats, but she's been around on the floor while I cut and sew.
