About wool felt
New wool can be matted and strengthened by moisture, heat and friction. This creates a homogeneous textile fabric, the wool felt. Depending on the processing, it can be as soft as cotton wool or as hard as wood after milling. There are also a variety of ways to refine the felt. Accordingly, the uses of wool felts are diverse. The very fine and high quality sheep's wool is used as raw material.
Felt is a textile fabric made of a disordered fiber that is difficult to separate. Felt is therefore a non-woven textile.
In terms of care and cleaning, wool felt is an unproblematic material. The fat content of the wool and the density of the material prevent dirt from penetrating quickly.
Clean: Remove stains with a regreasing stain remover or shampoo and sponge or alternatively dry clean the felt
Dry: Air dry wet parts slowly, lying flat
Smooth: Iron with moderately warm iron - wool setting, also with steam
Please DO NOT wash the felt in the machine as this will continue the felting process.
Please be aware that hats made from thicker leathers usually run smaller and hats made from thinner leathers are generally considered full fitting.
