1. To clean our wool hats it’s best to first brush the hat counter clockwise with a soft bristle brush, preferably horsehair bristles. It’s best to use a lighter shade brush for lighter colored hats and darker toned brush for darker hats to avoid color transfer from the bristles.
2. If your hat is looking dusty use a lint roller to gently lift away particles. If you don’t have a lint roller, tape is also effective.
It’s recommended to store stiff / flat brim hats on a flat surface, in a hat box, and always in a dry and cool environment so there is no risk of moisture damage. Hats with curved brims should be stored crown down or on a flat peg or hook that won’t pinch the wool. Storing a curved brim hat on a flat surface will risk disrupting the silhouette and normal shape. It can be very difficult to restore a hat back to it’s original shape.
What happens if your hat gets wet?
If your hat gets wet, shake off the excess water and let it dry. Do not set in the sun to dry and do not leave in a hot car to dry. Once your hat is dry follow cleaning steps 1 & 2.
