Did you ever wonder how a felt hat is made? Do you have questions on quality and functionality? Read ahead and you will learn a lot more about felt hats!
Felt hats offer many different benefits. They are worn for many reasons including comfort, shelter and style. Felt hats are made of animal fur, wool/cashmere or a blend of materials.
Beaver fur hats are the most luxurious felt hats available and they will withstand the rain and snow better than any other material. The amount of beaver fur used in making a hat is represented by an “X”. The larger the X value, the greater the amount of beaver fur used in the hat. Many 100X hats are pure beaver hats but it must be stamped on the hat.
Blended hats offer a mixture of quality and comfort while being less expensive. The materials used in a blended hat are generally rabbit pelt and wool. Rabbit fur is coarser than beaver fur, but still provides substantial durability over wool.
Wool hats are made of natural material including cashmere or angora. A wool hat does not resist wet weather conditions very well yet they offer a lower price point and make a great starter hat.
Felt Hat Making Process-
