Hat Forms for Needle Felting

Foam Hat Forms for Needle Felting (dry felting) Hats

Foam Rubber Hat Forms
Needle felting hat forms -  needle felt around the form to create a unique, wooly hat!  One edge is sharp, for a hat with a distinct top edge, or use the buffed edge for a hat with a more rounded top.  Now available in a multi-height style -  the 4" height (works well with the brim, see below) becomes the 5" height (perfect for toques and rolled brims) by using the form with the height extender that comes with each form - simply attach the extender to the crown with a felting needle or T-tack.  By felting around the only the edge of the crown, you can also make earwarmers.  This foam is made in part with soybean oil.  Designed by Suzanne Higgs.

 If you are going to use alpaca or llama fibers, please use small form for best results.
Small form is for heads measuring 20-21 inches.

Medium form is for heads measuring 21-22 and a half inches.

Large form is for heads measuring 22-23.5 inches.

With normal use, each form will last for 10+ hats.

Super Small, short - form measures 20" around...$25.00  #439009
(for those who felt more loosely, or for children's size)


Small  - form measures 22 1/2" around...$25.00  #439002


Medium  - form measures 23 1/4" around...$25.00  #439003


Large  - form measures 23 1/2" around...$25.00  #439004

Needle to Wet Felting Forms

Needle to Wet Felting Hat Form

Super Big Hat Form
This form is designed for the needle felter/hat maker who is interested in going beyond needle felting with the hat forms. The much larger form allows for extensive wet felting to occur after the needle felting is completed. During the wet felting one is able to create unique folds and turns into the finished felt.  It is for using very fine fibers only, as they shrink well during the wet felting.  Merino, Merino/Silk, Merino/Tencel, Cormo, and Icelandic fiber have worked well with this form, but don’t be afraid to try your own fibers. The results using merino can be seen below.  This form also works very well for felt vessels or felt bags using many different fibers. Let the fun begin!

The hat is begun on the super big hat form with dry needle felting. Then the needled fabric is placed over an inflatable ball and wet felted to finish.

Form measures 10" diameter, 11" tall.

Super Big Hat Form...$41.75  #439032


Optional accessories:
