A blissful wool mat perfect for yoga and meditation!
This mat is made on Vancouver island from 100% Australian Merino Sheep’s Wool and it is backed with cotton canvas to help prevent slipping.
With a wool density of 850 gram, this wool mat feels like a sheepskin and is dense enough for use on wood floors. Because this mat is lanolin-free, it is also naturally non-allergenic!
Yogi Bhajan recommended the sheepskin for meditation, as it creates an insulation between the yogi and the magnetic pull of the Earth. Many people experience deeper states of connection to their Self and the Universe when using a wool mat as compared to a sticky mat.
The sheep are sheared without injury, and their wool is then superwashed and knitted into a porous fabric. The fabric is then stabilized with potato starch. The result is a mat that looks and feels like a sheepskin without harming these peaceful animals.
The miracle of wool:
-Wool has the frequency of the Divine.

Note: The color of the canvas backing is a solid light cream color.
