Our Beaver Fur Felt
Beaver fur felt is dense and virtually waterproof and consists of beaver and rabbit fur blended with felt to produce a material that lasts 5-10 times longer than wool felt.
A fine Beaver and beaver blend fur-felt hat can be re-blocked and shaped numerous times, and is the best material from which to manufacture hats. Supposedly the higher the beaver content the higher the X factor – but unfortunately there is no standard within the hat making fraternity – and a lot of confusion.
We sell 3 quality beaver blends of fine western hats – 5X, 20X and 100X.
- 5X is a blend of about 5% beaver with rabbit and felt.
- 20X is 50% beaver blend
- 100X is pure 100% beaver fur felt
For an all weather hat – you can’t beat a pure beaver cowboy hat. Light, stiff, and fabulous looking it’ll shed what ever comes it’s way.
