Ill admit, Ive been on a Quest, to find a Wax Cotton Hat that doesnt take a life time to break-in...you know the ones ...Theyre Stiff... like Odd Jobs turban (the sinister Character in the Movie Gold Finger).
Ive completed my Quest; Ive found the Secret, its in the Cloth! The stiff hat makers weave the cloth and dip it in wax...Not Good!!
The Watership Hatters spin the thread,Wax it and then Weave the Cloth. This creates the Perfect Hat with a warm friendly flexible feel, that up until now, required years of wear.
