Perfect for pressing & paper piecing! Wool retains heat and moisure, so these mats are like pressing your piece from both sides. Creates a nice crisp hem, and is perfect for those smaller sewing spaces where a full sized ironing board would get in the way. As well, you can pin pieces to them to get the perfect shape, and the wool is grippier than a typical ironing board cover.
Personally, I tend to sew on my kitchen table, so I pop one of these beauties on my glass-top stove or counter, and boom! Instant ironing surface.
Please note: these are thick enough that i personally find they dont get hot all the way through, but I have seen mentions online that folks have had their cutting mats deform when using the wool mat on top of it. I always reccomend using the wool mat on a surface that can handle heat, such as a glasstop stove or ironing board. When using steam, be sure to clean under the mat afterwards as some condensation may come through.
All mats are 1/2" thick.
