Good morning , Sharon!

about stiffener on  merino wool hats.  answer is - no.  after "rolling" and blocking its maintain shape perfectly without any stiffener (thats why it highly recommended for kids, people under medical treatment, with allergies etc)  thats why  for centuries used  in all "extreme environment " - cold  or hot and its very light (by weight) hand felted items - have incredible "memory"   - you can pack them flat and after just a shake (or put on your head:) and ready to go..

 hope it answered your questions.
