How to stretch felt hat?

If your felt hat feels tight or uncomfortable, you may need to stretch it to achieve a better fit. Here’s how to stretch a felt hat:

Fill a bowl or sink with warm water. The water should be warm to the touch but not too hot, as hot water can damage the felt.

Use your hands to wet the hat thoroughly in the warm water. Be sure to saturate the entire hat, including the crown and brim.

Once the hat is fully wet, remove it from the water and gently shake off any excess water.

Place the hat on your head and shape it to the desired fit. You can also use a hat stretcher or a rounded object such as a ball or vase to shape the crown and brim.

Allow the hat to dry completely while on your head or on the hat stretcher. Avoid using heat or direct sunlight to dry the hat, as this can cause it to become misshapen or shrink.

If the hat is still not fitting comfortably after it has dried, you can repeat the process of wetting and shaping until you achieve the desired fit.

It’s important to note that while felt hats can be stretched, it’s always best to start with a hat that is slightly too big rather than too small. This will give you more flexibility to adjust the fit as needed.
