This fair trade rainbow striped felted wool trivet is hand made in Nepal. It is approximately 8" in diameter and is dyed in vivid stripes. Because each one is handmade, colors may vary slightly from the images, but they are bright and cheerful. This felted wool trivet is beautiful and durable, and its purchase helps artisans in Nepal earn a living wage. Felted wool is a great insulator with a high burn point, and is durable yet non-abrasive on your counters; qualities that make it ideal for a hot pad. It's a great hostess gift!
