100% Organic wool felt Meditation Mat

£120.00

Sink on to this sumptuous mat!

As an environmentally conscious devotee of yoga, meditation and pilates, I find there is nothing more comforting than sinking down onto this gorgeous mat.  It’s made of 3 layers of thick felt, and whether you are standing, sitting or lying down, you feel supported and warm.  Even when you roll from side to side, you feel massaged and ‘held’.  This is because of the density and natural properties of the wool.  You can, of course, use it in combination with a rubber yoga mat, but personally I find this unnecessary (and to be perfectly honest, quite smelly!).  However, the meditation mats are not designed for standing stretching poses, so you will need to step onto a floor for that.

Combine this with neck or lumbar pillows, and you have a warm, comforting and supporting set-up for a lifetime of practice.

Measurements: 100cm X 67cm

3 Layers of felt approx. 2cms deep.  Hand made from organic Shetland wool felt.

Spills on felt can usually be easily sponged off.  Wool has the wonderful ability to ‘wear clean’, in other words, it will hold a lot of dirt before it is noticeable, so frequent washing is unnecessary and environmentally undesirable.  Also, depending on the vigour with which you wash the felt, a certain amount of shrinkage will happen, which on the one hand strengthens it, and on the other, makes it smaller.  So care must be taken to be gentle.

Hand washing of felt can actually improve its quality and strengthen it.

Wash in hand hot water using any good bar or powder soap, rinse, squeeze in a towel, pull into shape and leave to dry.
