Pot underlay "A sheep in Christmasland"

In a short time it's time to pick out all the nice things that create that wonderful Christmas atmosphere at home. I have made a pot underlay in the nice colors of Christmas and it is both beautiful and practical.


The pot underlay is made of handmade wool balls. I make the balls myself from carded wool, hot water, soap, tea strainer and a lot of hand power. Sometimes I even have to supplement with a little needle felting. I can calmly say that it requires patience and perseverance. In the end, I have 260 wool balls for a large pot underlay, 130 for a small one. How many wool balls are then consumed depends on how big they became.


When the balls are ready, and have dried, I sew them together with an organic cotton yarn. I use double thread to make it durable.

    It is almost inevitable not to spill on a pot holder, but when it does, you take  a damp cloth and removes the spill immediately. If the stain has sunk in, you can wash the pads a little gently under warm, running water. If you want to use some remedy, take some soap. 

    Do not wash in the washing machine!
