These felting forms are made with eco-based materials which help us reduce our dependence on fossil fuels, and are a great alternative to petroleum-based polyurethane foams.
The eco materials include soy and other products grown by U.S. Farmers, this foam is much denser than standard petroleum based foam.
In needle felting hats, they are taken off the form a number of times and tend to "stretch out" a bit". Shrinkage happens in the wet felting and fulling stages.
The hats are now cut so that you can simply attach the extender to the short crown of the hat with a felting needle or T-tack and have a tall hat form.
These forms can also be used for felting a round purse or basket.
The size information is simply a guide to help you choose the best size for your project!
