What is "Wool Felt"?

When we were young, we all used felt fabrics to glue onto papers and make Thanksgiving Turkeys.

But when it comes to clothing, especially fedoras, felt has slightly different meanings, or we say, implications. If some one refers a fedora with 100% Wool Felt. Then it means 2 things:

100% Wool

Fabric is 100% Wool, no synthetic fabrics.

Felt

The fabric is NOT woven, but matting, condensing and pressing fibers together. It does not indicate what fabric it uses.  Examples are: Wool Felt, Polyester Felt and Mixed Felt.

 

 

So in this case, 100% Wool Felt fedora means the fedora is made from 100% wool as fabric and the wool is nonwoven, but felt treated to introduce a better structure as well as comfort.
