Because of the breathable nature of alpaca fiber, these hats are truly a three season hat -

that can be warn from 65 degrees F. and down. The lower the temperature, the warmer they get and so light weigth you hardly know that you are wearing it until you get a great compliment! Great in the rain or snow! All alpaca hats are water resistant and stain resistant. Choose from the styles below or send me a picture of a style you would like. All my hats are made from the finest 100% alpaca with wool needle felted accents.

When Ordering Use the Following:

Order Sizes: 21-22 inches(Small), 22.5-23.5 inches(Medium), 23.5-24.0 inches(Large)
Available Hat Colors unless otherwise specified: Cream, Fawn, Brown, Black, Silver, Charcoal Gray and Dyed Alpaca in True Red or Spring Green.
Accents vary from purples, pinks, greens, orange, yellow, maroon, to natural blacks, fawn, gray, or cream.
Note: to determine head size, measure along hair line with tape measure and behind ears. Add 1/4 to 3/4 inch for tight fit to looser fitting hat.

Customers Say:

"I want to let you know that the hat I ordered from Made in the USA Forever arrived today. Not only is it soft and warm, but it is very beautiful! And it fits perfectly. However, the greatest compliment--which was a surprise--came from my husband who said, 'It's you!'
Thank you for your fine work!"
Lola Meek

"I've cycled 4 times with it [alpaca cycling hat] in Temps around 4 Celsius pretty cool and it has done a great job keeping my head and ear tops warm! No itchiness too!"
"The color is great. I'm very happy with it! You did a great job on the thickness..I think it's the perfect thickness. ... again wonderful job on the cycling hat. You might want to put something like that in your display. I always try to figure out why more kiosks and boutique stores don't try to appeal more to men..we have money and don't mind spending it on things that are functional and practical!"

My Wet Felting Process! [Roving alpaca]

Wet Felting in Pictures!

Step 1: Get some fine Alpaca Roving that is clean and with as little guard hair as possible.
[Hat Making2]
Step 2: Wrap the alpaca around a wooden block, head form, flat resist or bowl. Here I show alpaca wrapped around a wooden head block. Using some bubble wrap over the form helps to hold the fiber in place and helps felting latter. I use a fine layer of fiber and multiple layers, usually six!
[Hat Making25]
Step 3: Add some colored wool or dyed fibers to create a design!
[Hat Making3]
Step 4: Add a netting material over your hat to help keep the fibers in place!

[Hat Making4]
Step 5: Add hot soapy water using a spray bottle or I laddle using a small amount placed in the side areas and top last!

[Hat Making5]
Step 6: After the hat is patted, gently rubbed, massaged, and rolled in bubble wrap, I shape it! Vinegar soak it! Rinse it! Dry it! Then it is ready to have needle felted accents added and more shaping.

Benefits of Owning Alpaca!

1: Silky Soft as Cashmere and warmer than wool.
2: Light Weight Warmth that Wicks Moisture.
3: Unlike wool, Not Scratchy and is Hypoallergenic.
4: Stain Resistant and Water Resistant, stays Warm and Dry!
5: Long Lasting and Durable as well as Light Weight.
6: Comes in Twenty-Two Natural Colors and can be dyed to create many other colors.

Caring for Your Alpaca Hat!

Your Alpaca Hat should stay pretty clean and my never need cleaning since it is stain and water resistant but if you find it needs some cleaning, soak the spot to clean in luke warm water with some dish soap or hair soap added. Gently, squeeze the area a few times (Never Rub!) and then soak in clean water and squeeze out excess water gently. Do not soak ornaments such as flowers or leaves that were added to hat as they may change shape. If you have any questions or need minor repairs please e-mail me at mmarceauocdjnj@yahoo.com.
