Knitted Wool Dish Mats
Alternative to dish drying mats made with synthetic fibers.
Form meets function when the knitted dish mat props up plates and utensils to dry, intentionally highlighting the loveliness of an everyday moment. The texture and natural color add to the backdrop of time spent in the hub of the house - the kitchen. The pad features gentle ridges between the rows of knitting which help stabilize items in place. Wool is naturally anti-microbial, and the loop allows it to dry out easily between uses.
Hand knit and naturally dyed by women in Nepal, these dish mats add a beautiful texture to your sustainable kitchen. Since it is naturally dyed, each one is unique. At the end of its life cycle, the earth friendly fibers and dyes will decompose so it is one less thing to end up for a millennia in the landfill.
Dimensions: Approximately 16" x 20"
Goes Great With:
100% pure wool roving | "Cutch" from acacia trees | "Mycopigments" from mushrooms
Your wool dish mat is washable!
To clean: Use mild detergent and gently spot wash. If necessary, wash with cold water on a gentle cycle in a washing machine. You can put it in the dryer for a felted look, but it does best if line dried. Since the cutch is a natural dye, it needs to be kept out of harsh, direct sunlight.
End of Life Recommendations
The dish mat is 100% natural wool, so when you do not want to use it anymore, throw in your compost bin or bury in the garden!
