About Wool Felt Hats
Wool felt describes the material the hats are made from. The styles of these hats differ, but you'll be able to tell if one is felt by the texture and the way the fibers of the wool are condensed and matted. While the wool you can buy at a crafting store tends to feel synthetic, this material will feel sturdy and durable.
Wool felt has been used in hats for centuries, and the material has been around for even longer. In fact, the phrase "mad as a hatter" is believed to have originated as a reference to toxic fumes that arose from the production of these hats in the 19th century, which made hat makers sick. Felt hats have had several popular cultural renaissances, including as the hat Indiana Jones wore in a series of successful films.
