Our Western hat, and some wool felt fedora hats are packable by turning them upside down in a suite case, stuffing the crown with hosiery and using surrounding articles to support the brim. Many of our wool hats for sale online are packable. You can roll or fold your wool mod cap or wool cloche to stick it in your coat pocket, or stow it in your tote bag. When you're ready to wear your hat again, just unroll it. Your wool hat will regain its original shape. Wool hats should take on the character of the person wearing them. Expert hat wearers feel the dents and contours due to packing and everyday use, give your hat character, making it even more special. A felt hat that appears too mushed or misshapen can be revived with steam from a steam iron. Use a towel or potholder to support the dent or wrinkle into the desired position while steaming, holding it there until it cools. This should reduce or remove the dent or wrinkle as desired.
Exceptional Materials and Craftsmanship
Wool felt is historically one of the most common materials used in creating semi- structured hats for winter. Our classic women’s wool felt hats are made from sustainable wool shorn and milled from small farms. Multi-use sheep are cared for under the most humane conditions possible. Though our wool is imported, all of our hats are meticulously designed and hand-blocked in NYC.
Each cold-weather hat in our collection features the finish and detail to enhance the style of your hat. Most styles are available in a range of colors, including black, and shades of camel, and brown. Some are available in lighter shades or bright red so you can find the hat that best suits your style.
The fit of a hat is as important as the fit of a shoe. All Eric Javits hats have elasticized inner bands, which hug the head comfortably. If your head itches while wearing the hat, it means it is fitting too snuggly, cutting off your circulation. If the hat spins around on your head, it means the hat is too loose.
If you are an individual with a special head size, your favorite hat can be ordered in a custom size for a nominal additional fee. Our customer service department can assist you in getting the hat with the correct head size. Hand-blocking is an old-fashioned technique where the felt material is dampened, steamed and then sculpted over a carved wooden hat block. It then goes into a drying oven to set the shape. The hat then undergoes several steps for finishing and trimming. This method takes skilled craftsmanship and time to complete, but we think it's worth it because the result is a much higher-quality finish that feels better, lasts and retains it’s shape. All of our felt hats for women for sale online are hand-blocked.
