Twisted & Flat Toyo Paper Mix Capeline Hat Body - 11"

£2.50 £8.00

*We are down to our last of these vintage (circa 1990's) capelines. All will have slight defects and foxing in one place or the other, hence the amazing price!*

Surprisingly robust, Toyo blocks easily, makes excellent summer hats and their smooth surface lends well to applying surface prints and even for painting onto! This version is made up of flat and twisted toyo mixed together to form an interesting weave. 

Toyo is a smooth Japanese rice paper which can be stiffened using straw stiffener or a PVA glue solution.  

Capeline measures:
Flat measurement from crown tip to brim: 28cm (11 inches)
Brim width from side crown to brim edge: 9.5cm (3.7 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 in between 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 fitted hats.
