We are excited to be offering handmade felt hats, made by J.T. Ferrell hats in Kuttawa, KY. This model is what I would call a low crown bowler, made from light weight black high quality fur felt. Ferrell is a master at his craft, and this hat has been made with all the care and work that went into an original high quality felt hat. This felt has been "pounced" or sanded to achieve the proper finish. Additionally, this hat weighs approx. 5 ounces whereas the common repro hat available in the living history community today weights 7-8 ounces. Original hats were normally much thinner weight felt, and this hat nails it! Size is 7 1/8 and it features a leather sweatband and finished interior.
