(1)How to make the wool felt hats?

1. Process the raw material
The first stage is cleaning the wool, all of our material is import from Australia; We use a mild acid solution to eliminate the impurities in the wool.

2. Forming the wool felt hat body
Firstly we weighted the wool and confirmed the size exactly enough for the hat then put the wool through forming machine. The initial cone is formed.

3. Felting process
With the pounce machine and the steam, the wool cone begin to shrink into felt cone and then it is passed through rollers which uses hot water and pressure to further promote the felting process. This felting process will make the felt cone shrink to a required size and tightness.
