Wool has long been used in conjunction with ironing systems in both industrial and domestic applications. 100% felted wool has tremendous heat absorption properties without burning or melting and makes an ideal pressing surface for both dry and steam irons.
Embroiderers will enjoy the unique properties of the felted mat as the wool assists with settling puckering by heating the fibres from both sides. These mats are perfect for pressing out an embroidery block. The woollen texture also serves to hold fabric in place preventing a loss of shape while pressing. The thickness of the mat also allows for easy pinning.
Using the iron:
If you are using the pad uncovered, simply use the wool setting with no steam
If you are using the pad covered with a cotton fabric, you can use the cotton setting on the iron
Be careful when using the pad that heat doesn’t travel through the pad onto the surface underneath – if you place an appliqué mat underneath your ironing pad it will protect the surface underneath
Please note that some fabrics may transfer colour to the pad if you press them while they are wet, simply place a cloth between the fabric and the pad if you are concerned
