Fuchsia Sun Protection Hat
Roll it up and pack it away in your garden apron when you're done -- it shakes back into shape in seconds!
This wide-brimmed hat is made entirely of grosgrain ribbon, so it collapses completely if you want to shove it into your apron pocket or flatten it on the potting bench after use. (Give it a shake and it reshapes itself!) One size fits all, and you may find you love how it looks and feels so much that you wear it far beyond the garden gate!
This hat was given an Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) of 50 by an independent textile research lab (NOT the manufacturer, you'll be glad to know!), which is the highest level of protection you can find. (Clothing labeled UPF 50+ offers almost no additional protection.) This means that when you wear the hat, your skin is protected from UV rays 50 times more effectively than if it were exposed directly to sunlight. That's pretty serious protection! Sun-protective clothing looks like regular summer light-wear, but it's actually much more tightly woven together and deeper in color.
This hat was recently selected as "Oprah's Favorite" in O Magazine. We ordered a sample of every style and color we could get our hands on here at Park, had a hat party to try them all on, and voted this fuchsia and the khaki as the hands-down (or do I mean "heads up"?!) winners! They were the most comfortable and flattering, with the best overall fit. I think you're going to love it!
