CURLY FLAP FEZ - "Stratification" wool ear flap beanie hat
Womens - Large
Mens - Medium-to-large
OOAK Argyle in Black, Asphalt, Silver and Gray

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.

"Stratification" : Drill down through the depths of the ice, and you'll see layers with the detritus of times past. Two merino wool sweaters appear in this Fez. Pale gray, black & asphalt stripes and patterns are in the front, while the back and top are plain dark gray ribbed wool. The smaller ribbing in the back top creates an interesting curl to the crown. The ear flaps echo the middle of the strata, and are matched.

Contrast shiny silver and gray serging seams brighten up the ear flaps and crown. Silver on the outside and plain gry on the inside of the ear flaps. They are super soft and floppy...some one said like little lambs' ears! You'll just want to stroke them!

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.

=============
Crown: 7-1/2" (19 cm) high
Circumference:: 25" (61cm)

and of course the wool is quite stretchy, so you can wear it tight is you wish.

fits Women's heads Large, or Men's Medium to Large
(I'm a medium women size 7 [22" (56 cm)] around above the ears, and this feels too loose on my head, but would be OK if I had a lot of curly hair).
=============

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.
