Pure and natural, 100% Alpaca. The Paca Pressing Mat is the most luxurious pressing surface and a wonderful alternative for those who are sensitive to wool, either by fiber or fragrance. Compared to wool, alpaca has better insulation and dries faster. Studies have shown that alpaca fiber is about three times more insulating than wool due to the hair follicle structure. This means you can use an iron on COTTON setting when pressing on an alpaca mat. The Alpaca fiber also naturally wicks away moisture and releases it into the air. This creates an additional heat source underneath your fabric, giving you crisp precision as you iron. While it is recommended to use a dry iron, if you prefer you can mist your fabric and your quilt seams will lay flat and dry quickly.
If you do use any spray starches or any gluing techniques, you will need to handwash the Paca Pressing Mat periodically with a gentle, mild soap.
