About Our Merino Wool Desk Mats

Gaming on a Felt Desk Mat

Wool felt desk mats are compatible with laser and optical mouse options, they can be used instead of a gaming mouse pad. Since, wool felt adds a bit of drag to mouse movement our desk mats will feel similar to a high friction mouse pad.

How Thick Are Our Desk Mats

Our merino wool desk mats are about 3.1mm thick which makes them a good mix between soft and firm. Soft enough that they add slight cushion under your arms and firm enough to hand daily use with ease. If you prefer a thicker mat, our wool and cork desk pads are 6mm thick!

Colour Options

Light Grey and Charcoal

As shown here by with our phone mats, we have two shades of wool available for all our wool desk mats. We use the same material for our trays, coasters, and wool plus cork mats so everything matches perfectly.

Available Sizes

To fit in as many desk sizes as possible we have five wool desk mat sizes available along with three new extra large sizes!

Extra Large Desk Mats

Our extra large desk mats are great if you want enough space to place a laptop stand or desk riser along with your keyboard and essentials on your mat.

Custom Sizing

Custom wool mats can have a maximum edge length of 107cm (42inches) so the largest desk mat we can make would be a size of 107 x 107cm (42 x 42 inches).

 

For anything larger than our listed sizes, please contact us or reach out on our Etsy store.

Wool Desk Mat Care Instructions

Merino wool felt is comparable to fabric in terms of care and cleaning. The main difference is that felt is made by heating wool in water, tangling up its fiber, and pressing into into shape – unlike fabric which is woven together. The process used to make wool felt gives it characteristics like softness, heat resistance, and durability but that same process makes wool felt unsafe for washing machines. Washing machines risk breaking apart wool fibers that hold the entire felt together. Other than that wool felt can handle use and abuse for years with ease.

Laying Flat

Our desk mats always lay flat better on one side. You can also flatten them with the help of some light ironing.

Cleaning

Merino wool desk mats can only be spot cleaned with cool water and mild soap or detergent since they’re not washing machine safe.

Not Machine Washer Safe

Wool felt desk mats are not machine washable. Natural wool felt begins to break apart with high heat and water.
