Expert Answer:

No, static friction does not results in the production of the hat, only kinetic friction creates heat. For heat to be generated there must be relative motion that generates the heat by rubbing of the molecules against one another and in the process creating heat. For example if you keep your hands together and move them together no heat is generated and while if you rub them then heat is generated. Heat is generated only in kinetic friction.
