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.
To fit in as many desk sizes as possible we have five wool desk mat sizes available along with three new extra large sizes!
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.
Our desk mats always lay flat better on one side. You can also flatten them with the help of some light ironing.
Merino wool desk mats can only be spot cleaned with cool water and mild soap or detergent since they’re not washing machine safe.
Wool felt desk mats are not machine washable. Natural wool felt begins to break apart with high heat and water.
