Unblocked Hat Bodies are not hats, they are not shaped yet and may have frayed edges due to the dying process. One would have to take a hat making class to finish them. If you want a finished hat please look on the buttons called finished undecorated hats, Thank You. Colors will vary depending on your monitor. Natural hat bodies will be stiffer than dyed ones because the dying process softens the straw.
Dye lots may vary. Dye lots for Hoods may also vary from Dye lots in the Capelines.
Parasisals are not guaranteed to be colorfast.
Straw hat bodies sometimes have frayed edges. This is considered normal for a hat body. Hat makers are expected to know how to finish the edge when they are making the ‘hat body’ into a ‘hat’. No credits or exchanges will ever be given for such an occurrence. If you don’t know how to finish an edge of a hat body, then may we suggest that you take some hat making classes before purchasing our capelines.
