Care Instructions for Hats

Care Instructions for Felt Wool Hats and Engraved Cowboy Hats:

Storage: When not in use, store your felt wool hat in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. Avoid storing it in a cramped space where it may lose its shape.

Cleaning: Use a soft brush or lint roller to remove any loose dirt or debris from the surface of the hat. Gently brush in a counter-clockwise direction to maintain the hat's texture and appearance.

Weather Protection: Felt wool hats are generally durable and can withstand various weather conditions. However, protecting your hat from extreme weather situations such as heavy rain, snow, or strong winds is advisable. If your hat gets wet, allow it to air dry naturally at room temperature, away from direct heat sources.

Rain and Water: To protect your hat from water damage, consider using a water-repellent spray specifically designed for wool. Apply the spray evenly and follow the manufacturer's instructions. This will help prevent water from soaking into the fibers and maintain the hat's shape and quality.

Sun Protection: Felt wool hats are susceptible to fading and damage from prolonged exposure to sunlight. If you anticipate being in the sun for an extended period, consider wearing a hat with a wide brim to provide additional shade and protection for your felt wool hat.

UV Protection: Ultraviolet (UV) rays can cause the colors of your felt wool hat to fade over time. Avoid leaving your hat exposed to direct sunlight for long periods to minimize UV damage. If you plan to be in the sun frequently, consider using a UV protectant spray specifically designed for hats to help preserve the color and integrity of the felt.

Reshaping: Over time, the shape of your felt wool hat may change due to wear or storage. To reshape the hat, steam it by holding it over a kettle or steamer for a few seconds. Once the hat becomes pliable, gently reshape it to its desired form. Avoid placing your hands directly on the hot steam to prevent burns. Allow the hat to dry naturally while retaining its shape.

Professional Cleaning: If your felt wool hat requires thorough cleaning or restoration, it is recommended to take it to a professional hat cleaner. They have the expertise to clean and reshape the hat while maintaining its quality.
