Hat Information, Sizes, and Features
The best fit imaginable, like a warm hug, is what you will experience from one of my beautiful wool hats. Each hat is meticulously hand crafted and shaped to ensure a proper fit.
You will look amazingly beautiful while staying warm and dry.
Sizes - My hats come in three basic sizes, with custom sizes available upon request.
Go to Small Hats - 21 inches | equivalent to U.S. sizes 6 3/4 - 6 7/8 | Euro sizes 54 - 55 If you don't see a small that you like, please purchase a medium and put a note for it to be made to fit a small.
Go to Medium Hats - 22 inches | equivalent to U.S. sizes 7 -7 1/8 | Euro sizes 56 - 57
Go to Large Hats - 23 inches | equivalent to U.S. sizes 7 1/4 - 7 3/8 | Euro sizes 58 - 59
How to Measure - To measure your head for a proper fit, use a soft measuring tape (or string which you can then measure). Measure above your eyebrows going around to the widest part of the back of your head and back to the front again. Select the hat size that is closest to the measurement.
Styles - The Grace Rose Hat Collection includes my original designs such as the Classic Hat, Wide-Brimmed, French Toque, Cloche and specialty designs.
Features - Wear your hat in the rain and snow! Wool is naturally water repellent and its strong dense fiber will stay toasty warm even if it does get wet. Even wool will eventually get soaked in a torrential downpour. If your hat does get wet, do not put it in the dryer! Instead support the top of the hat on a drinking glass or hat stand and let it air dry.
My hats are pack-able. Since my hats are thick, they can be packed in your suitcase. They will spring into shape when you remove them. However, do not leave them packed for days on end. Take them out and shape them every few days.
Hat Making Process - I use several techniques to make hats. Hats are made one at a time so supplies are limited.
My knit and felt hats are knitted by hand, using my own patterns which have been perfected to create thick, warm and breathable hats. Then they are felted into a dense fiber, dried and shaped on a professional hat block. This process ensures the perfect shape of every hat. Some of my knit and felt hats have beautiful surface designs needle-felted on them.
My wet felted hats are made using merino roving and hat templates. These hats have surface embellishments that are added during the hat making process. The hats are shaped on professional hat blocks.
