Ok, I missed the 100x on my first look...beaver.

No problem - I have two bunnies (last of their navy) and natural (really both superb), and two beaver - one is the Mogul which has quite a bit of shellac because of its brim curl, but this latest one has to be one of my softest felts I own, on par with the Gannon, as its the same Felpa felt, but Hornskov leaves them very soft. Could well turn out to be one of my favorites...

I’ve just been looking at the website. I see you added the wind trolley. Can I ask how much extra that set you back? I’m looking at the Diamond for my next Hornskov, but I’m keen on a wind trolley and also a shark gill ribbon.

Let me tell you my story - I ordered a plain Editor in rabbit, then added a few extras on two occasions - DKK200 was charged for the windcord, I then realized that for DKK500 (Yen8500), I could get a full beaver, so added this on as well. Whilst their Fepsa rabbit is fine indeed, I'm glad for the extra upgrade to beaver. I would caution on the Diamonds dimensions though - I have a C crown (I think its what they call it), and the Crown is very tall - unless you are looking for that, or you may want a few cm lower, and that they can do too. Hats dimensions are very individual to style, face and taste, as i am sure you well know (through trial and error), but the great thing about Hornskov is that they offer all the customization - just have to ask Catherine.
