CLEANING YOUR HAT: If your hat needs a little tune-up, take a soft bristled brush or lint roller to clean off hair or dust. When using a soft bristled brush, brush in small circular motions. You may wipe small spots with a slightly damp white cloth. Do not use a cloth with dye, as the dye may transfer to the hat. For a small stain on felt hats, we recommend using a felt sponge to clean the spot. For more severe stains, we suggest taking your hat to a local hat repair shop to professionally clean it. If your wool hat gets wet, allow it to dry naturally, do not blow dry it. Avoid getting our Spring / Summer hats wet, the paper and natural fibers will expand or shrink and distort the shape and color.
STORING YOUR HAT: You can hang your hat on a nail on the wall, but we suggest covering the tip of the nail with a foam ball, so that the sharp tip of the nail does not damage your hat. You can Store It in a box in a cool dry place. Wool hats can be stored in plastic bags to protect them from dirt and dust. We strongly recommend that you do not put straw hats in a plastic bag, the lack of air dries the straw out and can cause it to break. Our hats are made from natural materials and can change color and shape if exposed to long periods of heat and moisture. Do not store your hat in your car the exposure to prolonged sunlight and heat will discolor and distort the shape.
