Knotted Toyo Paper Capeline Hat Body - 11"
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 has little knots all over the top surface and gives off a faux ostrich effect - it really is lovely!
Toyo is a smooth Japanese rice paper which can be stiffened using straw stiffener or a PVA glue solution.
Flat measurement from crown tip to brim: 28cm (11 inches)
Brim width from side crown to brim edge: 9cm (3.5 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.
