What material are the theatre hats made of?
65% polyester and 35% cotton with choices of light weight (145gsm) or medium weight (195 gsm) and a choice of finishes (microbial/anti-viral). Most clinicians opt for the light-weight fabric as this seems to be suitable all year round, so they are not too warm in the summer months.
