Their are many steps involved to bring your custom hat into the world. It starts with managing the herd and shearing the alpacas. Once sheared, the fiber is sorted, cleaned, and made into roving. It is then custom dyed. No two color batches are exactly alike.
After the fiber has been prepared, the hats can then take shape. Through a laborious process of "wet felting" the hats are molded on a shaper and left to dry. After the hat is formed, the rim is cut and sewn, the hat is stiffened and steamed, and the sweatband and headband is hand sewn. The final touches are added and your custom hat is ready!
