How to Reverse and Refresh Your Hat


 Give that hat a little love and it will look great year after year.



If you own a HoHo Hat you know you’ve got the best Santa hat on the planet, it’s made of genuine shearling lamb, fine fabics, and it’s reversible!


So let’s talk about how to keep your hat looking perfect and how to reverse it for two beautiful looks.



1.  Brush out the lambs' wool.

 Wool and fur react to humidity, heat and cold and handling naturally by curling, clumping or matting.  It’s very easy to fluff and freshen your hat to look like new!


Gently brush through the wool with a wire pet brush or even a bristle hair brush.  You’ll be amazed at how this restores the beauty of your hat.  Just be careful not to snag the brocade fabric when brushing out the band.



2.  Steam out any wrinkles.

Hold the hat close, not touching, a steam iron and shoot some steam at any wrinkled spot on the velvet or silk.  The wrinkles will fall out.

Let the hat cool flat a few minutes.  It’s best not to press your hat directly with a hot iron or you may make more creases – but they can be steamed out too.

3.  Spot cleaning

If you get makeup on the leather band it can be minimized or even removed by rubbing a cotton ball dampened with rubbing alcohol on the spot.  For spots on the velvet or lining fabrics, use a damp cloth and gently clean the spot. Steam after to refresh.

Your hat can be dry cleaned but don’t launder it. Water will make the leather band stiff and the wool fur very tight and curled.





 Your hat has a “Santa” side and a fun patterned “PomPom” look.  Here’s how to wear each.

1.  Santa look, velvet side out

Take off the fur loop and store it.  You don’t need it for this look.  Shake the silky lining down into the hat and push the snowflake or jingle bell into the hat point for a smooth lining.  Now you’re ready to say hoho ho!




2. PomPom look, patterned side out

Roll the velvet over the fur ball and down into the silk crown.

Put on the fur loop.   Then try on the hat  and adjust the loop down to pouf the crown as you like it. Now your Swarovski crystal snowflake or jingle bell get a chance to show their stuff!













Treat your hat as a holiday heirloom and it will last for many years!  Santa never goes out of style.  Your HoHo Hat is sure to keep your spirits merry and bright!
