Mega XL Visca Capeline 1x1 Weave Hat Body - 15"
WHOA! This is one of the largest capelines we have ever seen! Made from visca which is a Japanese wood pulp, it has a rich shiny appearance and is know n as a 'faux straw' as it looks like the far more expensive parasisal straw form afar.
Floppy by nature, this checkerboard 1x1 weave visca can be blocked and stiffened just as you would with natural straw. For a more structured crown simply pop over buckram. If a romantic floppy brim is what you are after this is just superb! With this mega size we would recommend adding a brim wire to keep it from flopping in your face!
Flat measurement from crown tip to brim: 38cm (15 inches)
*Please note that this is not a finished hat but the 'body' to make one from scratch.*
Petershams Guide to hat bodies:
Cone: This is the perfect size for most fascinators and for blocking out hat crowns.
Flares: This is the size inbetween a cone and a capeline, so good for hats with smaller brims or larger fascinators.
Capelines: This is the largest hat body, great for wide brimmed hats.
