(Please scroll to the very depths of this page to learn something that continues to amaze and delight Tilley Hat wearers!) New for 2006 - the elegant TH8 Hemp Hat is specifically designed for women. The TH8 Hemp Hat is, indeed, elegant yet hard-working. Can be worn brim up all the way or jauntily tipped to set the tone for any occasion. Add your personal panache with a scarf, vibrant hat band or eye-catching pin. The all-around wide brim offers a lifetime investment in sun protection and style. Why Hemp? Not only do our Hemp Hats look great, but they have a soft linen-like look with a 'tough as nails attitude'. In fact, Hemp is the world's strongest natural fibre. It is breathable, and naturally resistant to UV light, mould, mildew and salt water. Tilley Hemp fabric has been tested and certified as having a UPF 50+; this is the maximum UV protection rating given. Like its owner, your TH8 Tilley Hat requires a little care to look lovely for life. Please read Washing Instructions below. Brim measurements: 3" all around SIZES S (6 7/8 7) M (7 1/8 7 1/4) L (7 3/8 7 1/2) XL (7 5/8 - 7 3/4) If you give us your heads measurement (inches or centimetres) on the Sizing Guide on the website, well give you the right size.
