Apparently, this thing is just what quilters need. I had previously made a small 2’x2’ ironing “board” for my wife to iron quilting pieces on, but she likes this much better.
The pad is uniformly thick, and it’s beefy. It doesn’t compress at all during ironing, and there are no softer spots anywhere on it. The surface doesn’t deflect easily, and provides a nice flat surface that’s just perfect for ironing small things.
NOTE – If you go too hot with the iron, like cotton hot, you’re going to burn the wool wherever it touches the bare iron. If you do, it’s going to leave black residue on your iron that will have to be cleaned off. This is just the nature of this type of wool pressing pads, and they all do it.
Once we figured this out (there are no directions with it) we turned the temp down to “Wool” and all was well. Alternatively, you could put a cloth over it to keep the hot iron from touching the pad directly, and that would also solve the problem.
My wife is a quilter, paper-piecer, and seamstress, and says she rarely uses steam when she irons. (I don’t know, ask her.) After watching her iron some seams and quilting squares, I flipped the pad over and the bottom was cool to the touch. If you use steam, it might be a different story.
There was really no smell to the pad, unless you put your sniffer right on it. Then yes, it smells like wool.
Not really sure why anyone would put their iron down flat and let it rest on the silicone thing they included, but I’m sure there’s a reason. And I guess the little pouch is to put that in, although I’m not sure about that, either. Wife said she might use it as a trivet for hot pots.
I asked her for any negatives at all, and she couldn’t come up with any. It’s just the right size, the right thickness, and the right firmness. Just like Goldilocks, she says it’s just right!
- Lightweight and Portable.
- Perfect size for quilters.
- No real smell to the one I received.
- Not really a con, but all wool mats can burn if your iron’s too hot, leaving black junk on your iron.
