The chenille braid is a simple cotton and acrylic, tight weave makes it a warm hat, but a nice change from the wool and knit of most winter hats. The weave is tight, with plastic strand woven with it for durabiilty. This one just has the one angled pinch on the crown. I added a wool felt band.
I use an soft elastic band in the inside, so it does have some ability to fit two sizes, email me if you have a question on size, or pick one when ordering if there are two choices. It doesn't mean there are two of them, as they are one of a kind, but I can stretch it or the elastic in it is already stretched when sewn in. This has a 2.5 inch brim in the front.
