High-class felt hats have a beautiful shape and an exceptional feel, but many people may be wondering if they can be cared for.
Here, THE FAT HATTER, which also handles high-end felt hats and wide-brimmed and foldable hats, will introduce how to care for felt hats on a daily basis. In addition, we will also introduce what to do if it gets dirty or wet, so please refer to it.
Daily care for felt hats
Daily care is important to protect the felt hat from dirt and shape loss. Especially high-grade felt hats can cause worm-eaten if left unclean.
It may seem a bit of a hassle, but it's a good idea to protect your precious hat.
To keep it clean
No matter how careful you are, sweat stains will adhere to the forehead. To prevent this, it is recommended to apply sweat-removing tape to the inner edge called slip. However, do not leave it pasted, but replace it frequently.
Also, since the slippery part of the hat is in close contact with the skin and hair, dirt is attached even if it is not visible. After putting on the hat, gently wipe the slippery part with a damp cloth that has been wrung out tightly, and let it dry thoroughly.
For daily care
If dust adheres to the felt hat, it will deteriorate the quality. Brush with a soft brush to protect the texture, especially for high-end felt hats.
Use a soft horsehair brush and gently follow the flow of the felt hair. If you rub it too hard, it may cause hair loss, so be sure to take good care of it on a daily basis.

What if the felt hat gets dirty or wet?
Even if you're careful, the felt hat may have become dirty.
In such a case, don't rush and try the following maintenance.
First, gently brush
If it gets dusty, brush it gently. However, it is absolutely not good to remove dust with adhesive tape. Dust on the surface can be removed, but dust that has penetrated all the way cannot be removed. Also, the adhesive material will move to the surface of the hat, attracting more dust.
Use an eraser
Light stains on the surface may be removed by gently rubbing with an eraser.
If the slip is very dirty
If it does not come off even if you hit it with a wet towel that has been wrung out tightly, soak the towel in a 10-fold diluted neutral detergent for clothing and squeeze it tightly. Place a clean towel on the back of the slip and tap the heavily soiled area with a detergent-soaked towel to allow the stain to transfer to the clean towel.
At this time, be careful not to get the felt part wet. After removing the dirt, dry it thoroughly in a well-ventilated shade.
When you are worried about odor
The odor will disappear if you dry it in a well-ventilated shade, but if you are still worried about it, it is a good idea to use a deodorant spray for hats.
When it gets out of shape
Apply steam from a steam iron to the area of concern. Wear gloves and work gloves to prevent burns. Apply steam about 5 cm away from the place where you are worried about losing its shape, adjust the shape from the back side of the hat, and keep the shape as it is until the heat of the steam subsides. At the end, let's dry it in the shade and let it dry thoroughly.
THE FAT HATTER, which sells high-class felt hats, also offers wide-brimmed and foldable hats.
Many felt hats are high-class, and you should be especially careful when cleaning them. To do this, first prevent it from getting dirty, and then use a brush to remove dust after it has been covered.
In addition, in order to use a high-class felt hat for a long time, it is important to pay attention not only to daily care but also to storage. For long-term storage, store it in a special box with the brim facing up.
Please note that if you store it with the head part up, it will lose its shape. It is also recommended to add insect repellent and desiccant and store in a cool, well-ventilated and dry place.
