About Hats

  1. Always clean your fur felt hat with a dry sponge or brush. Be sure to brush your hat with a counterclockwise motion.
  2. Don’t allow your hat to get dust. A periodic thirty-second brushing of your hat will keep dust and other matter from accumulating on your hat.’
  3. When putting on a hat, never grab the crown with your fingers. The oil on your finger cans causes marks on the crown. In time, this will also weaken your hat
  4. Always thoroughly brush a hat before you steam it for re-shaping
  5. Hang your hat on a hat rack or put it on its crown when you’re temporarily not wearing it.
  6. When storing felt hats for summer, brush the hat and place it in a hatbox. This will retain the shape of the hat and keep it free of dust.
  7. If you have no box to store your hat in, be sure to set the hat on a shell and see that the scope or dip in front extends over the shelf. Other wise, in time, the weight of the hat will flatten the scope.
  8. Rain or snow will not damage a good fur felt hat. Allow your hat to dry naturally away from excessive heat. Reshape the hat (if necessary) when completely dry.
  9. Hats can be cleaned and re-blocked
  10. What do the X’s mean?
  11. The quality of the hat body used to make a hat is the main factor that determines the X’s. In felt it is determined by the percentage of fur’s used in making the hat body. We use beaver, mink, chinchilla and other animal fur to make bodies. The mixture of which furs we use determines the X’s. In straw, the X’s are also determined by the body used to make the hat. The tighter the weave and narrower the straw reed used to make the hat, the better X quality is marked in the hat.
