HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR HAT

How to Care for Linen and Hemp Hats

 Hand Wash Air Dry in Shade Air Dry

HAND WASH

AIR DRY

WARM IRON

Hand wash your hat in cool or lukewarm water with a gentle detergent.  We prewash our fabrics so shrinkage is not a concern.  Our wide brim hats have a millinery wire at the edge of the brim to prevent flopping and the wire may be bent by a washing machine.  Air dry your hat in the shade. Placing it over a vase prevents wrinkling in the crown. Iron the brim if needed using a slightly damp towel between the iron and brim.  A steaming tea kettle will remove wrinkles from the crown. Do not place hot iron directly on inside crown lining. Do not bleach. Do not dryclean.

Pack hats flat for travel to avoid bending wire. Crusher and bucket hats can be rolled.

HAND WASH

COOL IRON

Hand wash in cool water and air dry. If your hat has a wide brim with millinery wire at outer edge a machine spin cycle will bend the wire.  Bucket and crusher hats without a wire may be machine washed in cool water.  Air dry your hat in the shade. The brim may be cool ironed at nylon setting with a cloth between the iron and hat.  Do not bleach. Do not dry clean.

Bucket and Crusher hats can be stuffed in your bag any way you want.  Wired brim hats should be packed flat to avoid bending wire.
