How Do You Clean a Felt Hat?
To clean dust from wool felt hats, a lint brush or hat brush will get the job done. Brush your wool felt hat with short, vigorous strokes.
- Fur felt hats will require the use of a horsehair bristle hat brush. Brush your hat in a counter-clockwise fashion with short, vigorous strokes.
- For wool felt and fur felt, you may use a kettle or a steamer to gently apply a little bit of steam on the hat. This will help aggregate dust before brushing, and leave felt hats with a softer touch.
If your wool felt or fur felt hat is stained, misshapen or otherwise needs a deep cleaning, do not hesitate to contact our professional hatters to enquire about our hat cleaning and reblocking services.
