Correspondingly, can you wear a felt hat in the rain?

Light rain or snow will not damage a felt hat so long as you set it on a flat surface and allow it to dry naturally.

Subsequently, question is, is a felt hat waterproof? Outside of a few rain hats most hats are water repellent NOT waterproof. A light rain shower, drizzle, even a little snow will not destroy most felt hats. Heavy rain and thunderstorms are not good for felt hats. Let all hats and caps dry naturally away from heat.

Correspondingly, what happens if a felt hat gets wet?

If a felt hat gets wet, invert the sweat band so it's sticking out of the hat. Don't use heat to accelerate drying as that could cause the leather sweat band to shrink. Ensure that the brim does not rest on the surface because pressure of any sort on a wet hat will warp the hat after it is dry.

Can beaver hats get wet?

Since Limpia Creek Hats uses only beaver and rabbit fur felt without cosmetics, it will not hurt your hat to get wet, or even drenched. We actually prefer that you wear your hat in the rain, and do not cover it with plastic or a rain cover. When you get out of the rain, just hang it up to dry.
