    The felt is 160gr. I have pounced it quite a bit. I really like the Ukrainian felts. The dye job is thorough so they can be pounced without fear of mottling. They have a nice hand, particularly the suede finish......soft yet with substance. I have settled on these Ukraine felts as my standard rabbit offering as they offer great value and reliability.

    Sounds good, I’ll go for it. Side vents, some light blue or turquoise ribbon and brim binding, some color that would be good for The Tropics, get creative. MAybe a solid snap brim and teardrop bash.

    I was going to add a Salute Blue - mid blue with lots of gray tones in a thin ribbon. Or I have it in a 16 ligne as well. I will do the venting early next week and then send pics of some ribbon choices. It should arrive soon ...burgundy 16 ligne and a 6 ligne brim binding width in a nice vintage. If that interests you I can hold off til it arrives. It is in transit now. PM sent with my PayPal address....when you get a moment. Or a tone on tone brim binding and a Sky blue/Powder blue crown ribbon?

    No, they are from Agnoulita and are very small so too limited to carry in stock any longer. Tim @purebeaver has Fepsa 95gr lightweight felts and he says they are amazing. Very pricey and limited colours but I am tempted to try one for myself.

    I checked and Tim's colours in the 95gr are Cypress, Commando, Iron...all darker colours nothing light at all. If he had anything in a light summer colour I would jump for certain.
