The Lakeland Collection placemats are made from ethically sourced sheep wool, which has been carefully heated and pressed into sumptuous, dense thick felt. One of our team then crafts this felt into our luxury felted tablemats.
There are no extras, they're entirely plastic-free, and free from chemicals, solvents glues and dyes - simply beautiful sustainable sheep wool placemats. These mats provide a sustainable alternative to slate placemats.

Why do I need a Lakeland Collection luxury wool felted placemat?
Made of ethically sourced, sustainable sheep wool these coasters a little bit of natural, minimalist luxury. Not only this, they take advantage of some of the many fantastic properties of sheep wool.
Naturally insulating, wool placemats help hot plates to stay hot and cold plates to keep cold. They'll help prevent scorch marks, colour bleaching and other heat-related damage to tables and countertops by absorbing some of that heat, and protecting the surface beneath.
Densely felted, these tablemats are incredibly cushioning. Wool is naturally forgiving and springy - when it's paired with our innovative heating and felting process, it becomes an incredibly cushy, dense felt. It's cleverly designed to absorb impacts, help prevent damage, chips and cracks to ceramic ware, as well as taking some impact away from the surface beneath.
No need to worry about candles or a flambé, wool is naturally flame retardant, it doesn't catch light easily and simply smoulders - so you'll never have to worry about your favourite tablemats bursting into flames if there's ever a dining candle accident.
They're crafted in Britain, using low energy, small batch production methods and only the highest quality, ethically sourced wool felt - to ensure the carbon footprint of these sustainable tablemats is as low as possible. They're completely plastic, synthetic and solvent free meaning these placemats won't contribute to the ever growing issue of plastic pollution in the ocean at end of life. Plastic based cutlery and kitchenware contributes to approximately 9% of the plastic pollution in the ocean. A terrifying thought. Not our placemats thankfully, when they finally reach the end of their long life, they can simply be repurposed as a mulch mat for your garden or composted!
Plus, they're just delightful! Crafted in view of the Lake District fells, why not keep a tiny piece of the Lakes in your home, a reminder of a recent holiday, a future dream adventure or just as a reminder of the beautiful National Heritage site?

What's the best way to care for my luxury wool felted placemats?
Our minimalist, practical felted table mats are wipeable and easy care. They are also hand washable in cold water and mild detergent, so if you happen to spill a little wine or tomato sauce on them, don't worry you can simply wash them by hand, and lay them flat to dry. Being dark coloured they tend not to show stains.
The dense felted wool is tough, fray resistant and built for longevity, so your luxury felted placemats will last for years. We advise keeping hold of the box (after all, it is pretty!) and storing your tablemats in a dry place, in the box to keep them pristine when they're not being used.
