Wool Pressing Mat

Felted Wool

Press any pieced or embroidered block with ease. The density of this high-quality 100% felted wool mat absorbs seams and stitches, effectively pressing both sides at once. Block knitted projects as well by pinning them directly to the mat. An added bonus? The texture of the wool stops fabrics from shifting so there is no distortion when pressing. 

Tips and Tricks 
The pressing mat can be used with a dry iron on any surface. If using steam, place the mat on a protected surface since moisture does go through the mat and can harm the surface below. Never place the mat on a rotary cutting mat when pressing. The heat could warp the cutting mat. If mat feels damp after use, hang to air-dry before storing. Wash the mat occasionally by rinsing it in cold water and hanging the mat until dry – especially if using a spray starch. Safe surfaces include Formica, Corian, stone, and metal (an ironing board). Wood and painted surfaces should be avoided. A wool mat is a handy tool for quick pressing when kept next to your sewing machine.

Wool pressing mat

Very good

Perfect size!

I bought my second wool pressing mat because I wanted to set up a portable pressing station. I used a TV table, batting, some canvas, and a staple gun to put the table together. The wool mat that I purchased fits perfectly on top and doesn’t slide at all. I like the wool pressing mat because it helps to really flatten seams.

Looks like the perfect set up to me! :)

Don’t be greedy

I was greedy and I got this big boy - I regret it right away. You need to use this with an ironing board, or somewhere the steam/heat can go through without warping whatever is on the other side (you can’t use a cutting mat or a flat surface like a countertop). My ironing board is a standard size and I anticipate the wool will deform as it is wider than my board, the end flops over and droops. I am trying to rotate it to prevent this, but plan to sell it soon.
It works almost exactly as I imagined, but I'm grossed out by the wet wooly smell every time I use steam, which is most times.

Great product, but not the right size! Think about where you would use it before you go for it.

FELTED WOOL Pressing Mat

I love it!! It works just as described and makes pressing seam allowances so much easier for me.
