In this article, I will show you some common materials used to make a felt hat.
Felt hat is a hat made of felt with a creased crown fedora, homburg, Stetson, trilby chapeau, hat, lid - headdress that protects the head from bad weather; has shaped crown and usually a brim.
Felt hats are made from felt pressed and shaped, generally from natural wool and, to a lesser extent, rabbit fur. Felt is made without the use of warp and weft interweaving, but with the use of wool shrinkage characteristics without changing the physical properties of wool.
At present, the wool used by domestic felt factories is divided into Australian wool and domestic wool. Australian wool is the super fine Merino wool produced by Australian Merino sheep, national wool and Australian wool is shorter and coarser than ordinary wool, Australian wool made of felt is finer and smoother than ordinary wool.
Foremost use 100% Australian wool, 60-80 counts, which costs 20%-30% more than national wool. There are also factories that use national wool mixed with Australian wool as Australian wool.

Wool is a type of fabric derived from the hairs of various animals. While most people associate the word “wool” with sheep, there are, in fact, a variety of distinct types of wool that producers derive from animals other than sheep.
To make wool, producers harvest the hairs of animals and spin them into yarn. Then weave this yarn into garments or other forms of textiles.
Wool is known for its durability and thermally insulating properties; depending on the type of hair that producers use to make wool, this fabric may benefit from the natural insulative effects that keep the animal that produced the hair warm throughout the winter.
The production of wool begins with the shearing of wool-bearing animals. Some animals bear wool once per year, and others bear wool multiple times throughout the year.
Next, the shorn wool is cleaned and sorted into bales. There are a variety of ways to remove the greasy lanolin in raw wool, but most large wool producers use chemical catalysts for this process.
Once the wool fibers are clean and sorted, they are carded, which is the process of making the fibers into long strands. Lastly, the finished textiles may be exposed to a variety of post-production processes to develop certain attributes.
According to World Atlas, Australia produces 25 percent of the world’s wool, which makes it the most prominent wool-producing country.

The fabric obtained from long-haired animals is called fur fabric. The fur from which mammals are collected is not generally accepted as a by-product of the meat industry. In the case of fur, the meat of these animals is not usually eaten.
Animals are first killed directly to collect fur. There is a ban on killing animals freely. Those who produce fur are called ranchers. Those who catch animals are called trappers. They are called trappers because they catch animals with traps. These trappers or ranchers have to follow the law.
By law fur is produced in a specified place. This law is relaxed in many countries and becomes difficult in many countries. Ranchers legally raise these animals and auction them off, while trappers illegally collect and sell fur. They trap animals.
Fur fabric is commonly used to make winter clothing. Different types of fashionable jackets, mufflers are made with fur. It is commonly known as expensive clothing. Also used in making shawls, winter blanket with fur fabric. Currently pillow covers, mats, rugs etc. are being made with this fabric.
