Ordering a Blakesby hat?
Rabbit felt hat – $600Rabbit is a good starting point, and makes for a fine and rugged, long-lasting hat.
Nutria felt hat – $800Nutria is similar to beaver in that it’s a fine, soft, water resistant fibre. Historically nutria was used around the 1910s-1920s as a substitute when beaver numbers dwindled, and has the benefit today of being the most sustainable felt option.
Beaver felt hat – $850Beaver is the standard. A premium choice, as the fibre is naturally much finer and softer than rabbit, and also offers natural water resistance.
An initial deposit is required when ordering, with this amount varying based on materials chosen. The remaining balance plus shipping is due when the hat is complete. Payment in instalments is both welcome and typical. Prices are listed in Australian Dollars (AUD$).
