The finish of these hoods is such that the fur fibres are all brushed in the same direction and finished at the same length giving a satin-like finish. This gives rise to the name ‘Soleil’, which is French for Sun. 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 are have no damage or minor damage on the edge of the hood. 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.
