~New in the shop!~
Felted Wool Pressing Mat
from the Gypsy Quilter
100% PREMIUM WOOL – MADE IN USA
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. In addition, the texture of the wool stops fabrics from shifting so there is no distortion when pressing.
