      What Do The x's Mean On Cowboy Hats?

      The X factor rating is determined by the materials used to make a felt cowboy hat. It is determined by the percentage of furs used in making the felt western hat. They use beaver, mink, chinchilla and other furs to make a felt hat. The mixture of which furs they use determines the X's. So basically, the finer fur a cowboy hat is made with, the more X’s a hat will be.

      FUN FACT
      In straw, the X's are determined by how tight the weave and how narrow the straw reed used to make the hat. So, the tighter the weave and the narrower the straw reed used to make the hat, the more X’s a hat will be.
