    Are you a collector of caps or hats? If so, you already know that hats incorporate their fair share of materials/fabrics. However, this is seldom thought about by most people. The thing is, in order to give your hat the best care, you should know what hat and cap fabrics your headwear is made of. For example, you would not care for your polyester hat the same way you wash and maintain your wool hat.

    Since any number of baseball cap wearers – and wearers of other headwear – have no idea what kind of fabric is used in the average hat, we've decided to introduce you to those materials. The following will be fabrics that are common, or the most popular, used in the manufacture of hats.

    1. Polyester
    Polyester is a synthetic fiber. It is one of the most popular materials used in making hats. Actually, it is the staple fabric in modern hat making. It is made from recycled plastic. Polyester is a darling to hat makers and most hat lovers because it is durable and resistant to water and abrasions. We cannot think of any other fiber that is durable and cheaper than polyester.

    The moisture-wicking property of polyester is also excellent. It excellently absorbs sweat from the skin, leaving it dry and comfortable. You would, therefore, enjoy wearing polyester hats all day long during summer.

    Polyester is popular in exercise hats, dad hats (baseball caps), and summer hats, thanks to its moisture-wicking properties.

    Immensely strong and durable.
    Has brilliant colour fastness.
    Holds its shape after washing.
    Insulating and breathable.
    Resistant to mould and bacteria.
    Mixes well with other yarns such as cotton.

    2. Nylon
    Nylon results in thin and lightweight caps suitable for hot summer days. The highly breathable material is made from recycled plastic. It makes the scorching summer days a lot cooler.

    One thing you will love about nylon is that it does not shrink. We are often in constant worries of our hats losing their original shape, but nylon hats will eliminate the concern. Nylon hats are also easy to take care of.

    The only problem is nylon is not great at wicking away moisture, but it tries its best.

    3. Cotton
    Cotton is a natural fiber that's made from cellulose. Soft and breathable, it is often used in apparel—including hats.

    Embroidered logos and designs are typically also made from cotton.

    Unlike other fabrics, it is naturally hypoallergenic—this means that it will not irritate the skin. Other advantages include its abilities to insulate and control moisture.

    When it comes to caps, it is often blended with other types of material such as polyester or rayon; this allows the product to be more durable.

    Soft and comfortable.
    Accepts dyes very well.

    4. Wool
    Wool is often obtained from lamb or sheep. However, it can also be from alpacas, llamas, or goats.

    What's great about wool is that it is soft and moisture wicking. It also contains breathable air pockets, which allows you to stay cool in the heat.

    Did you know that it is one of the most commonly used fibers used for making caps?

    5. Acrylic:
    A synthetic fabric made from the acrylonitrile monomer.

    Easy to dye.
    Retains shape.
    Machine washable.

    Due to its ability to be made into many thicknesses, acrylic is a great choice for snapbacks and beanies. The reason for this is that it holds its shape very well, which is particularly important for any snapback lover.

    The same is said for beanies. Acrylic yarn makes a great beanie hat. A beanie has to stretch for the wearer but it returns back to its relaxed state without losing shape when it is not being worn. This durability is precisely the reason why it is the fabric of choice for these two product categories.

    6. Linen
    Linen is a natural fiber that's made from the flax plant.

    Often compared to cotton, the material is very soft and breathable. For this reason, linen hats are very comfortable to wear on hot days.

    If anything, they do an excellent job of keeping your head cool in the summer. They're also great for spring.

    7. Straw
    Straw hats are fashionable in protecting your head from the fierce sun rays during summer. They have also taken the world of fashion by storm. Straw is made of material from different plants and sometimes synthetic fibers.

    Some of the plants used in making straw hats include bamboo, wheatgrass, papyrus reeds, and sisal.

    8. Plastic
    Plastic has become a popular component of hats in the past few years. The plastic and retro visors for women have taken over the world of headwear. They are suitable for protecting you from the scorching sun.

    9. Faux suede:
    Made from a polyester, but having all of the tactile attributes of real suede, faux suede is a real head turner. Incredibly soft, available in striking colours and more importantly “on trend”, faux suede is a pick of the more unusual fabrics that are available.

    10. Denim:
    Whose wardrobe doesn’t harbour a piece of denim?  Thicker and stronger than regular cotton, this fabric has been used for decades and isn’t going anywhere. However, our chambray denim is a lighter alternative to regular denim. It’s great for staying stylish in the sun, whilst remaining true to the classic denim look.

    What Type of Hat Will You Go For?
    As you can see, hats can consist of a variety of materials, from cotton to linen. At the end of the day, it depends on your preference.
