Hmmm... maybe a bamboo or bamboo blend? Bamboo tends to be very drapey. The top part of the hat is in linen stitch which makes for a firm fabric, so knit that part on needles bigger than you would normally use. I used smaller needles on the ribbing than I am on the linen stitch.

Or a linen or hemp blend. Both of those would become nice soft fabrics with washing.
