Felt a Beret

Classic French Style Wool Felted Beret
Classic French Style Wool Felted Beret

Learn to felt a French style Beret hat using a resist. A resist is used in felt making as a form to create the basic shape of the hat. Once the hat has partially felted, the resist is removed and the additional felting is done to further shrink the wool. Then the hat is stretched onto a hat form to shape the hat to the correct size.
After the hat has dried you can sew on a leather trim. A strip of soft reindeer leather will be provided.
I provide fine quality merino wool for the feltmaking. This creates a very soft, non-itchy and comfortable to wear hat.
This feltmaking course is designed for those with some experience in felting.
