The Pretty Parasol is a Survival item. Like a Umbrella, it negates Sanity loss caused by the Rain when equipped. If playing as WX-78, the Pretty Parasol will prevent damage caused by Rain and prevent being struck by Lightning.
It requires 4 Twigs, 3 Cut Grass, and 6 Petals to craft and is available from the beginning of the game. It can also be used as a Fuel, providing the same burn time as a Log.
Like the Garland, the Pretty Parasol does not have durability but instead spoils over time.
In DLCs, the Pretty Parasol slows the rate at which the player gains Wetness by 50% and provides moderate protection from Overheating, equal to an extra 120 seconds before the character starts to overheat. It will no longer prevent WX-78 from being struck by Lightning.
Due to its cheap cost, as a temporary measure, it can be an effective alternative to the Umbrella in Spring.
The Pretty Parasol was first introduced in the Reign of Giants DLC and was also present in the Hamlet DLC. It was then added to the base game in the Hamlet Early Access beta branch on April 18, 2019.
