This fair trade felted wool trivet is hand made in Nepal. It is approximately 8" square and 1" thick, and is is made of felt balls in natural shades of gray, taupe, and cream. Because each one is handmade, colors may vary slightly from the image. This felted wool trivet is beautiful and durable, and its purchase helps artisans in Nepal earn a living wage. Felt 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!
