Vintage Parasisal Straw Capeline Hat Body - 13-14"


Parasisal straw is amongst the finest of all millinery materials one could use to make a hat! It's made from super fine straw strands, woven into what is known as a 2x2 pattern that gives it a chevron-like effect, catching the light from all angles. It's ability to block out into a super smooth surface makes this capeline an absolute pleasure to work with! 

Lighter colours may have evidence of foxing or fraying around the outer edges from storage. Most colours have been pre-stiffened for ease of blocking. 

Capeline measures:
Flat measurement from crown tip to brim: Approx. 33-35cm (13-14 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.
