Bleached Wheatgrass Straw Capeline Hat Body - 11"


Wheatgrass is a flat straw that has a smoothness to it whilst at the same time provides interesting texture to your hat-making project. This 1x1 weave wheatgrass has been bleached so it is slightly lighter than it would be in it's natural state. Ideal if you are dyeing it to a lighter pale tone that needs a good light base. 

It's a pleasure to block - simply give it a good steam, a lick of straw or PVA based stiffener and you are well on to your way to making a delightful summer hat! 

Capeline measures:
Flat measurement from crown tip to brim: 28cm (11 inches)
Brim width from side crown to brim edge: 10cm (3.9 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 fitted hats.
