HATS PASS THE SUN TEST!
Many Conner Handmade Hats have been tested by The Australian Radiation Proctection and Nuclear Safety Agency (ARPANSA) who not only gave us all the facts on what a UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) rating is and how it relates to sun protective garments in general. What they learned was that if any hat has mesh or large holes it cannot be rated. Other companies are putting UPF 50 on their hats that are made with mesh when only the part of the hat made of solid material has UPF 50 protection, not the mesh. This is misleading and dangerous to hat wearers. Australia has some of the highest skin cancer rates in the world so we are confident the agency did a great job of testing Conner Handmade Hats.

BENEFITS
Many of these hat styles are offered in Shapeable Raffia and include a pinch protector.
All one size and two size hats are fitted with a deluxe, soft terry inner stretch band.

Hat Care Instructions:
Watch the Video for Tips on Stretching or Re-Sizing Your Hat

For Straw and Raffia Hats:
Straw hats can be spot-cleaned with a damp cloth. We recommend using plant-based soaps because regular detergents can be toxic to our waterways.

Always let your hat dry naturally. If your hat gets out of shape, you can use steam from a tea kettle to reshape it. Hold the hat in the steam and allow it to soften. You can then reshape your hat to its original shape and then let it cool down before wearing. Always place a hat upside down on its crown if you do not have a hat rack for storage.

Many of CONNER'S straw hats come with a wire in the brim so you can shape the hat to match your style. With a little practice you can reshape your hat brim easily. Western styles are generally worn with the brim turned up on the sides and Australian style hats look great with a dip in the front and the back.

For Wool Hats:
Using a lint brush or the adhesive side of tape will remove dust and dirt on wool hats. If your wool hat gets out of shape, you can use steam from a tea kettle to reshape it. Hold the hat in the steam and allow it to soften. You can then reshape your hat to its original shape and then let it cool down before wearing. Always place a hat upside down on its crown if you do not have a hat rack for storage.

For Leather Hats:
If your hat is stained, a leather dressing can be applied to the outside of the hat. The leather dressing will darken the hat, mask the stain, and make the hat more waterproof. If you're just removing a small mark on the hat, sometimes rubbing the area firmly with your thumb can erase the mark. Also, you can try chalk that is a similar color to the hat. This can soak up an oil mark. Afterwards, rub the chalk off the hat.

For Cloth Hats and Caps:
It’s best to spot clean all cloth hats with a damp cloth using cold water, or hand-wash in a sink if necessary. We recommend using plant-based soaps because regular detergents can be toxic for our waterways.

Always let your hat dry naturally. If your hat gets out of shape, you can use steam from a tea kettle to reshape it. Hold the hat in the steam and allow it to soften. You can then reshape your hat to its original shape and then let it cool down before wearing. Another option to take out wrinkles on the brim is to place a clean rag or old T-shirt over the wrinkled area then iron the area.
