Use a tape measure (or a length of string that you will have to hold up to a tape measure) to determine the length. Place the string or tape around your head about 1/8″ above your ear, across the mid-forehead, completely circling your head. Hold the tape firmly, but not too tightly. Basically you need to measure your head exactly where the hat will sit. If your measurement falls between sizes, choose the next largest size.

NEVER JUST A HAT
There is deep intention behind every design. We cut fabric and textiles, but never corners. From 100% merino wool, hand woven toquilla straw, premium furs, and more. Start at the top.
Always an art; never just a hat.
Making hats never gets old, only the folks making them. With this comes generations of experience at our craft. But it's what's next that matters most, and that is up to you. We just craft the hats; the transformation happens through you.
