Top hat, The Kesey top hat, felted hat, Cosplay Top hat


I call this hat “The Kesey “ after the portrayal of Ken Kesey in Tom Wolfe’s iconic book “The Electric Kool Aid Acid Test”. I can just imagine that Merry Prankster cavorting around in this glorious hat. Some people say it reminds them of a Monet painting and the ocean but to me is all Kesey.
Hand felted original design with wool sourced from Vermont sheep and hand dyed by me.
Circumference is 22.5 -23 inches. Medium to large.
I have sewn polar fleece inside to keep the itchy away and the brim is wired and hand sewn to keep its shape.
Embellished with a ribbon, peacock feather and a pewter brooch from TreasureCast (check out his store here n Etsy).
This is a one of a kind hat, it will never be made again in the same colors or embellished in the same way. It’s waiting for it’s just right person. Maybe it’s you!


I accept Paypal and credit cards through Etsy.

Shipping from United States

I ship through the US Mail and will provide a tracking number. Please note that shipping costs include handling as well. Box, packing, drive to Post office, labels etc are included in the shipping cost. The shipping is priority mail, sometimes flat rate (due to the size). If you feel the cost is prohibitive please contact me and we can negotiate for a different postal method (parcel post etc). International orders will be sent by First Class parcel post.
The postal service is it's own entity and I do not have control over weather, road conditions or postal people so therefore I can't guarantee that an item will be there at a particular date unless you are willing to pay for priority express. Please contact me if you are willing to upgrade the shipping so I can adjust the price.


Due to the delicate nature of felt I would be happy to repair an item if it becomes damaged in transit or within the first 30 days. You must pay the return shipping. If some reason you are unhappy with your purchase please contact me and I would be happy to refund your purchase as long as you return the piece through certified mail undamaged within 7 days of receipt. The refund will be issued as soon as I receive the piece. I do not refund shipping costs.
I do not refund for felting kits after 2 weeks from shipping date.
Custom orders must be paid up front and will not be refunded and can't be returned. Much time and detail go into custom orders and it can be hard to resell an item that has been made to someone's specifics.


International customers are responsible for their own countries custom fees. I will not mark the item as a gift as it is an unethical practice. If an item is returned because custom fees have not been paid only 75 percent of the purchase will be refunded. Shipping costs will not be refunded.
