What do you call the kind of soft-looking, somewhat pointed, one-piece hat typically shown on the head of the stereotypical "hillbilly?"

It's not a capotain because those are puritan hats, and flat on top. Is it a sugar loaf? It is kind of like a confederate slouch hat, but shaped more like a tuba. Mostly it is like the hat worn by the scarecrow in The Wizard of Oz. Almost like a witch hat, but without the wide stiff brim.
What do you call them, what were they made of, and how were they made?
