Size Guide

How to measure your head

We prefer that you measure your head in centimeters because it tends to be more accurate than inches. Measure several times to ensure accuracy.

step 1

To measure your head size where your hat will sit, gather a cloth measuring tape or a simple string.

step 2

Start at the back of your head by gently wrapping the measuring tape or string towards your forehead a half inch (temple area) above your ears. Meet both ends of the measuring tape or string at the center of your forehead above the eyebrows.

step 3

Mark where those two points meet and measure the distance between the start and end points. If using a string, measure the start and end points against a ruler to find your hat size. Use this measurement to determine your hat size. Hat sizes vary by style, so be sure to check the unique fit for each.

No Need to Be So Sheepish.

Not all wool is created equal. For instance, wool sourced in China can be from older sheep with fleece that has grown to be more coarse and itchier.  

Whereas, U.S. sourced wool, like what we use for KIN's women felt hats, come from Rambouillet Sheep, also known as the French Merino.

Raised in St. Angelo Texas, the Rambouillet sheep is shorn twice a year using humane shearing practices.  The Rambouillet sheep produces the best back fleece at fine 19 microns which is ideal for felting wool.

At KIN, we consider every step of the hat making process, whether it be the way the sheep are raised and sheared, to how our hats travel to you. In our opinion, no detail is too small.
