This is a top-quality fur felt hood with a beautiful velour (or ‘peach bloom’) finish. The felt is brushed to release fine fur fibres on its surface, resulting in an elegant plush look. Perfect for classic winter cloches, berets and caps. These hoods are vintage and have been stored with other hoods which have experienced damage from pests (moths).
These hoods have no damage or minor damage on the edge of the hood.
Minor damage. Often unnoticeable. Can be easily concealed or blocked to exclude any damage.
Care or creative use will need to be used in terms of how these are blocked or used. Damage may be in a few places or fairly noticeable.
Although there is no sign of current infestation and hoods have been cleaned, it is advised that if you are worried you should put your hood in the freezer (in a bag) for a week. Alternatively, if you intend to use it straight away, thorough steaming can also kill any eggs which may be present.
