I’ve got an old wool cap that I’ve worn for years and it’s starting to lose its shape. Is there any way to restore it or is it a lost cause?
Thanks for the question! I’ve worn out a hat or two of my own, so I understand that you’re talking about. They just start to lose their shape as the elements, misuse, and your head wear them down. Since I don’t know specifically what type of cap you have, I’m including a few resources to help with different types of wool hats:
- How to Clean A Wool Hat – eHow.com
- Tips for the Care of Your Hat – Miller Hats
- Care for a Wool Felt Hat – Hat-A-Tude
If you find that none of these work for you, you can always take your hat to a Haberdasher, if you can find one. It will be a bit pricier, but depending on the value of your hat, both monetarily and personally, it could be worth it.
