Juliane Gorman / FeltHappiness – White Felt Ruffled Beret

Sculptural felt beret with ruffle, opalescent pastel colors of a soap bubble with the warmth of felt.

The colors of this white hat are like mother-of-pearl: the palest green, pink, blue and white with bits of sparkle from iridescent Angelina fibers enmeshed in the wool. A felt ruffle encircles a faceted blue bead and waves across the top. It is truly a beautiful and graceful beret, easily worn by any artistic soul with style.


This hat is made of Merino wool fiber which I’ve carefully overlapped like shingles to make a flexible and warm fabric – felt! I shaped the damp felt around my hat block to create this hat’s unique shape. The pale ‘wave’ has been arranged so it undulates gracefully. After the felt dried, I top-stitched the edges and around some of the ‘bubbles’ to give further definition.

This hat doesn’t cover the ears, but rests above them. It is a wearable art that can be worn a variety of ways; you can turn the hat so that the focal point is center front, or off to one side.


The inside of the hat has a hand sewn headsize band of lavender colored millinery grosgrain. The hat should fit a range of 21 3/4 – 22 1/4 inches (55.24– 56.51 cm).

The hat at its widest point on top measures approximately 12 inches (30.48 cm) in length. It is a mid-weight felt in thickness and weighs 2.8 ounces (79 grams).


Sheep wool resists dirt and rain excellently! This hat can be gently hand washed in cool water with mild soap. Cool rinse, blot on a towel, shape with a bit of toweling balled up under and air dry.


Juliane lives in Gibsonia, Pennsylania, USA. When you purchase the hat, you will receive an email from TAFA introducing you to Juliane. She will pick up the transaction from there and contact you with the shipping cost. As her hats are bulky, it is hard to estimate what shipping prices will be until she knows the destination. She will then bill you separately for that cost. Insurance can be included as an extra charge upon request in the United States.

“While I studied textiles at the Rhode Island School of Design many years ago, it was my recent foray into feltmaking which caused a welcome rebirth of creativity.  Felting is a craft that suits my temperament: while there is method, improvisation is encouraged. Additionally, I enjoy exploring  color and also appreciate having the ‘constraint’ of making something functional.  For my work I create sculptural hats that expressively punctuate a wardrobe and are a joy to wear.”-Juliane Gorman

This item is on “Virtual Consignment” from one of our TAFA Members. Visit their profile link to learn more about them.

How it works:

We are an international organization with members in 44 countries. This item could literally travel around the world to its final destination! We are serving as an umbrella to help our members get more visibility for products they have to sell. TAFA does take a 25% commission for this service, which helps support our site and programs. If you shop through us, we are grateful!

When something sells:

The seller is paid immediately for 75% of the price. Both the seller and the buyer are notified of the purchase, receiving contact information for each other. From there, TAFA is not responsible for delivery options or processes. However, our members commit to prompt and professional customer service. Buyer and seller agree on what method works the best for them.


Many of our sellers are offering free shipping internationally for their products. If they are not able to do this, the shipping cost will be determined by distance, weight and carrier, the usual logistics that go with shipping a product. Buyer and seller will communicate directly to each other about shipping logistics. The listing indicates whether this item is offering free shipping or whether shipping fees will be added on. If the item is offering free shipping, insurance is NOT included and must be paid directly to the seller.


We want all of our customers to be happy with what they get, therefore we are accepting returns for a full refund (minus cost of shipping, if applicable), no questions asked. We are attempting to provide good images and text to avoid the need for returns, but we understand that seeing images and seeing something in real life are different experiences. Items must be returned to the seller within 5 days of receipt in order to receive the refund. Once the seller receives the product (in the same condition in which it was sent), the seller notifies TAFA, they refund us and we refund the customer for the original amount.

Note: This is being run on an honor system and we will do our best to resolve any disputes in a sensible way. Our hope is that this trust will not be violated within such a wonderful community.

Purchases made outside of TAFA:

It is our hope that our customers will explore our member sites and support them with other purchases, commissions, etc. If that happens, we celebrate this relationship and do not expect any commission or further compensation.


Please contact our member directly using the links you will find on their member profile if you have questions about this listing or anything else related to their work. If you have problems after delivery or other questions about TAFA, use the form on our About Page.

We believe that we have grown into an exceptional pool of talent and hope that you will spread the word about us. Our shop will continue to grow, so be sure to check back often for new listings! We thank you for your support!
