This is a Chestnut Felt Brimmed Hat using a gorgeous Velour Felt material. Another simple yet stunning wide brim from Wendy . This hat is made using soft velvety velour chestnut brown fur felt. Black Petersham trim around the brim edge and black velvet on Petersham trim for the hat band compliment this elegant piece. To finish there is an adornment of black perspex laser cut flowers. So simple and elegant but with a delicate complexity to detail.
This hat is perfect for the cold Autumn and Winter days but allows shade from the sun at the same time. Hence it has the dual purpose of giving warmth and protection from the sun. Needless to say this hat could also be used for more dress up occasions including weddings and perfect for the Autumn and Winter race days.
This fur felt hat is made from wool and rabbit hair. The rabbit hair provides the soft and fuzzy velour effect. Wendy ensures the source of the rabbit fur is only done ethically.

This particular Chestnut Felt Brimmed hat is only for a small to medium size (maximum 58cm headfit).
Fur felt is so luxurious and perfect for those cold winter days. With proper care this hat will last years as fur felt is surprisingly hardy and long lasting. A request can be made for an elastic for extra security and waterproofing.
The fur felt is available in a limited range of colours apart from the chestnut brown – raspberry, French navy, Camel and Caramel. There is no limit to the trimmings and embellishment you may want to apply to this hat.
