Default Wool Ironing Board Cover

Just wanted to post that I ordered a wool ironing board cover from Sonoma Wool Co. and I really like it. I did not want to have just a small wool square. It cost 65.50 including shipping. I could not find a wool pad to fit my ironing board except at this place. The length was perfect but needed to trim to fit the shape of the ironing board.

thank you for the information. Looks like a great price. I am wondering if we are supposed to cover the pad with canvas or some other material so the wool doesn't get dirty? Anyone out there have experience with the wool mats? Thanks!

Thanks for posting this information. Been looking at the mats but didn't know about this product.

I have wool yardage under my cotton ironing board cover. It works great! The steam/heat from the iron seems to come back up to the bottom of the fabric you're ironing/pressing to release more wrinkles than just using your average cotton ironing board cover. A quilter friend told me about this method several years ago and I just love it!

Wow, I didn't know about this company. Thanks for the link. They are practically in my backyard. I'll have to go up there and see them. I feel a road trip coming on... Woohoo!

I ended up ordering one too! I got the 17" X 24" one. Free shipping and was only $55.00. I looked on Amazon and then found the company name....just can't remember it right now.

Thanks for posting. I looked on their website and they show an ironing board pad. Is that what you got? Or do they also make a whole cover out of wool that I'm not seeing?

Seems wool batting would work for the ironing board pad. It doesn't look felted like the wool pressing mats.

Would an old wool blanket from the 40’s work as a ironing board cover? My mother used this one when training for a nurse and it has been washed so many times over the years that it is well felted and shrunk and just sitting in a cupboard.

I think any pure wool would work great as an ironing board pad. It wouldn't be the exactly the same as the wool pressing mats that are about 1/2" thick felted wool. That is what makes the pads so nice to press blocks and pieces.
