Among the largest insects in the world, Saturniidae moths are a family of moths in the order Lepidoptera. Some of the most well-known Saturniids include emperor, royal, and giant silk moths. Most Saturniidae moths have eyespots on their broad wings and large, heavy bodies covered in hair-like scales. Choose between either Fingering weight or DK weight option. The Fingering weight features a third moth repeat for a longer/slouchier hat and the DK weight results in a shorter/fitted hat.
