How to fix the hat...

So earlier this winter I made my husband a standard winter hat (with some ribbing on the starting rows) with some acrylic yarn I had in my stash (I know, acyrlics, not so great)....he washed and dried the hat and it stretched out and lost its shape.

Are there anyways I can get it to be errr less floppy now or is it a lost cause?

Could I weave in some 100% wool yarn and maybe it can tighten everything up by felting?

Ideas?

Thanks!
