    The video is what I see as interesting. It is enjoyable to see a masterfull hand creasing an open crown.

    Thanks for pointing out an Instagram account that I should pay attention to.

    Best, Eric -

    The first picture is colour 'Mud', the second picture is colour 'Stone'.
    Both great new colours.

    I’m surprised they are 50X and not 100% beaver.

    ya I noticed that too, must be how he got them to be so pliable? Wonder if it's a new blend of felt available to hatters

    Most of the excellent vintage felt wasn’t 100% beaver, and a lot didn’t have any beaver content. However, for marketing I think that pure beaver would have helped sell the felt. The rabbit and/or hare content doesn’t put me off.

    My Optimo Dillinger is from before they switched to all-beaver for their standard weight, and is a wild hare & beaver blend IIRC. It was not the most pliable hat at the outset but softened up quite nicely over time (to be clear it takes creases just fine, but the way Graham talks about "wiping" a crease into the crown? Not so much).

    This may or may not be the blend that is available to Hornskov through FEPSA; but I guess my point is, yeah, rabbit/beaver blends are good!
