Press Wool 9.5mm

Felted press wool is used in etching to provide cushioning between the plate and press roller. Each thickness of blanket serves a different purpose, and are most commonly used in combination with a 3mm and 6mm blanket. For etchings with very fine detail, we recommend using three blankets, with the 1.5mm layered closest to your plate.
