Unlike ordinary wool pads that allow steam to go through the wool onto the work surface, the Wooly Betty’s unique core stops steam from going through! This feature will also keep your surface dryer than average wool pads. The Wooly Betty has luxurious wool on one side, and our famous Steady Betty fabric on the other. The Wooly Betty gives you two boards in one and is lightweight. Because of the unique Steady Betty surface, our patented boards outperform other pressing surfaces. Specially designed to hold fabric so there is no movement as you press. The Steady Betty is wonderful for all fabrics including cotton, wool, and silk. Heat is absorbed and reflected back onto the fabric being pressed, leaving the Steady Betty surface cooler so you can continue working on your project. Teachers, Designers, and Educators have discovered the additional benefits of using the Steady Betty. NOTES: Other uses of the Steady Betty side include, stamping, Indian block printing, drawing, tracing, and paper piecing. The Steady Betty is also a great stable surface for applying Swarovski Crystals and stabilizing embroidery hoops. Cricut Easy Press users find the Steady Betty a valuable tool. It is also an amazing workstation for home or for traveling.
