Smooth Toyo Paper Capeline Hat Body - 11-12"
Surprisingly robust, Toyo blocks easily, makes excellent summer hats and their smooth surface lends well to applying surface prints and even for painting onto!
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: 28-30cm (11-12 inches)
Brim width from side crown to brim edge: 8cm (3.1 inches)
Due to it's age there may be some very minor spots of foxing on these capelines, particularly around the outer brim edge on the off-white color option.
*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.
