wool pressing mat


I won one of these in a quilting giveaway and was so excited to give it a try. This is the first wool pressing mat I have used and I really love it! I don’t have a dedicated room for quilting. My “studio” also doubles as a play room. Because of this, I didn’t like keeping an ironing board set up. I used a tabletop board for a while, but I would end up having to move it aside every time I needed to trim or cut more fabric. This is perfect. It fits on the same table as my cutting mat and can easily be set aside when needed.
It also seems to reduce my ironing time. I read later that the wool retains heat so allows for faster pressing. It must, because a few quick passes and my fabric is crisp and ready for cutting.
Happy with the size and happy with the product. I would recommend it to anyone who needs a space saving option. It’s so much easier to press every seam now when the mat is right there.
