Wool Felt 5-6″ Capelines

In stock and ready for quick shipment

$14.40$59.80

Wool Felt Unfinished Hat Bodies – 5-6″ Capelines.
The weight of our #6 Flares is approximately 140 grams or 5 ounces.
The weight is not necessarily related to the thickness but generally the heavier the body the thicker the hat.

Our wool hat bodies are Manufactured 100% in the USA.  We use 100% merino wool that’s sourced from South Africa and Australia.  The hat bodies are manufactured individually using original hat making equipment dating back 110 years.   The hat body production process encompasses 45 essential manufacturing operations.  We also cook our own stiffening agent, shellac, which is sourced from Thailand and Malaysia.

FYI

Hats By Lekos wool capelines and hoods are made with a special ingredient to prevent shrinking in the manufacturing process. Wool capelines and hoods made in China do not use this ingredient and therefore are more difficult to stretch and shrink since they do not use the special ingredient in their manufacturing process and they are preshrunk. Also, the Chinese use 100% type 1 wool while we use a blended combo of wools that actually make the hat pliable and easier to pull in the blocking process.

Unblocked Hat Bodies are not hats, they are not shaped yet.

Dye lots between the same colors of hoods and capelines do not always match exactly, but they should be close.

Description

Capeline (cartwheel, body) 5″ or 6″ brim – Larger than a hood, used for hats with large brims (portrait hats, pirate hats.) Wool is 1/8″ thick.

WOOL FELT

Issue: Manufacture machinery marks on felt that are made when making wool hoods and brims and stiffener discoloration.

FYI

Hats By Lekos wool capelines and hoods are made with a special ingredient to prevent shrinking in the manufacturing process. Wool capelines and hoods made in China do not use this ingredient and therefore are more difficult to stretch and shrink since they do not use the special ingredient in their manufacturing process and they are preshrunk. Also, the Chinese use 100% type 1 wool while we use a blended combo of wools that actually make the hat pliable and easier to pull in the blocking process.

Why and How to resolve:

Ours are much easier to move and the marks are just from the machinery to make them. We don’t pre-steam them out because we don’t want shrinkage. They will come out when you block and wet or steam them. Also, we don’t trim the bottom to give you more material to work with.

Making the bit of stiffener in them COLOR EVEN would also require us to steam them. We don’t do any extra steaming to make them cosmetically acceptable. We are concerned about substance not cosmetics. When you block and steam, all will be good and the integrity of the felt will be maintained for your valued ease of blocking experience. The cosmetic fix will happen when you steam and block naturally. Your end product will be achieved easier with better results. Voila!
