Using a lint brush or the adhesive side of tape will remove dust and dirt on wool hats. If your wool hat gets out of shape, you can use steam from a tea kettle to reshape it. Hold the hat in the steam and allow it to soften. You can then reshape your hat to its original shape and then let it cool down before wearing. Always place a hat upside down on its crown if you do not have a hat rack for storage.
First off, Conner Hats is an OUTSTANDING company, from the wonderful customer service I received to the high quality products they produce. I'm very picky about where my money lands and I would highly recommend Conner Hats. I've worn my Norcal Open Road hat a few times now. Great fit, cute and I love the way it keeps sun out of my eyes and off my face. It's gone to the Washington coast where it met rain and WINDY wind, and out camping in the Olympics on a cool autumn weekend. My hat was the perfect item to keep me comfortable and protected from the wide range of elements. The only problem I've encountered is that the chin strap is sort of a pain to re-tie when it is windy, and my hat would have certainly blown off if not tied TIGHT under my chin when out at the coast. I'm planning on adding a wooden bead to remedy the situation the next time I'm heading out on a windy day. Oh wait, there is one more problem..... I really like the brown version, too. It keeps pestering me and calling out, "Buy me!"

I used this hat last year to walk some trails that have bushes and branches everywhere. This hat held up nicely, stayed on my head with the strap tied. I have my nephew decorating it with some traditional native bead work. Will send an email when its done to show the final look.
Please do! Or if you're on social media, make sure you type #connerhats in your comments when you post the pic of you in the hat with the custom band. We'd love to see it and many folks who type in the hash tag will also see it!
I love this hat because the round top is very flattering and it is hard to find one that isn’t floppy. This one is so classic and well made. All of the environmental care shown by the company made me happy to try a hat without trying it on first. And it is great. Thank you for your care for the environment!! I will be a repeat customer for sure.
One of my favorite hats so I 'm thrilled that you like it. I'm also glad that you took note of our small company caring for the environment. We all take so much from it, so as a business we decided that we should give back to mother earth.
Going back to hats, you should also look into the Bird and Feather. It's identiical to the NorCal but has a small feather trinket strung into the leather neck cord on the brim.
I am always borrowing my husband's Conner hats because of the quality, but I wanted something a little more my own style. This hat has nice coverage from the brim without feeling too big or flashy. It gets a LOT of compliments. It has a rigid construction that keeps its shape and the understated and timeless styling goes with everything!
Glad you finally got around to getting a Conner Hat! The NorCal is a personal favorite of mine. One other hat that also has the same style and look is the Bird and Feather (https://connerhats.com/products/bird-and-feather-wool-hat). I love that it has a little feather trinket!
