100% Pure Wool Movement Mat

Enjoy wool's eco-friendly, natural, renewable, and biodegradable benefits when you use the Move to Wool movement Mat.

Wool has served humans' wellbeing for 8000 years, offering warmth and comfort in a non-harmful way. As organic matter, it biodegrades efficiently at the end of its useful life, leaving the earth nourished and ready to grow the next patch of grass.

The Move to Wool Movement Mat is firm, yet soft and luxuriously comfortable; the perfect combination for any movement practice. Particularly suited for low to medium-intensity Yoga, Pilates, Stretching, Meditation, Mindfulness, and Breathwork, for home practice and retreat environments.

The natural properties of wool keep you warm in winter and cool in summer.

The Move to Wool movement mat is truly 100% pure wool and nothing else!

Thoughtfully crafted in New Zealand from 100% New Zealand grown strong wool.

  • 100% Pure Wool Movement Mat
  • Crafted from a blend of 32-35 micron Joma Wool®, 80% white and 20% black needle felted wool, which is independently verified to be of genuine New Zealand origin by an independent auditor, Oritain
  • 1800 x 685 x 8-10mm thick
  • Weight: 1.8 kg approx 
  • Particularly suited for low to medium-intensity Yoga, Pilates, Stretching, Meditation, Mindfulness, and Breathwork, for home practice and retreat environments.
  • Cleansed through airing it in sunlight
  • Due to the natural composition and minimal processing of your Movement Mat you may notice some of nature’s beautiful imperfections remain within the wool, such as seeds and other organic matter. This is completely natural and harmless
  • Like all high quality wool products, your mat may shed some wool fibres but this will lessen with use
    • Easily remove the pills by hand, gently and carefully picking them off
    • A comb can be used to remove pills, making sure to be very gentle and careful
    • Use a sharp standard razor, and gently shave off the pills.
  • With proper care your movement mat will last a lifetime.
  • Which side of the wool movement mat should I use?
    • We recommend you use the more textured side of the Movement Mat; the side which has our logo imprinted on it. This side will give you better grip during your movement practice. It is also the more durable side of the mat.
    • If you sweat a lot while you practice and you do find yourself slipping we suggest you team your Movement Mat with TRIBE  Get A Grip Powder
    • We do not recommend that you use the softer fluffier side of the mat for movement practice as it is not as grippy, and may be prone to piling. However, you may prefer to use the softer fluffier side of the mat for meditation practices.

Caring for your 100% New Zealand wool Movement Mat

  • Shake after each use
  • If your mat needs drying after a hot practice, or airing out, hang in direct sunlight (Wool can absorb up to 35% of its weight in water, which is how it wicks sweat away from your mat so effectively. Once practice is completed, if wet, allow it to dry by leaving it flat for a while, preferably in a sunny area. That said, we don’t recommend to use our practice mat in hot studios, because humid and hot environments can shorten the shelf life of your new natural fibre practice mat.)
  • Gentle vacuum both sides once per week if you use it every day. Use only the sucking mechanism (not brush or beater bar) to preserve the condition of the fibres

Cleaning instructions
Your mat will not need washing often due to its natural self cleaning properties - wool fibre is coated in its lanolin, which stops bacteria from attacking it. All you need to do to clean it is leave the mat flat out to dry after a sweaty practice, ideally under direct sunlight. If stained, spot dry cleaning is an effective solution.

Lanolin
Your Movement Mat may also have a natural aroma of lanolin which is an amazing natural occurrence in the wool which repels water, dust and bacteria keeping your mat naturally clean. If you prefer to minimise the aroma, simply lay your mat in the sun for a day, turning a few times. Alternatively, choose your favourite essential oil, dilute two to three drops with 500ml of water and lightly spritz your mat.

How to wash

  • Spot clean using a small amount of wool detergent. Remove residue with a clean damp cloth
  • To hand wash, choose a sunny day and submerge in cold water with wool detergent. Leave to soak for one hour. Agitate and then thoroughly rinse with cold water. Gently squeeze out excess water and lay flat in direct sunlight to dry. Ensure your mat is completely dry before using again
  • Top tip! Hand wash in the bathtub, stand on it and use your feet to agitate after soaking for one hour

Long-term storage instructions
Always hand wash your Movement Mat before storing it for an extended period of time. Keep it in an airtight bag with a dry lavender sachet for maximum preservation.

What to avoid
Softeners, brighteners, shampoo, bleach; do not hand wash in hot water, machine wash, tumble dry or iron; store long-term without washing first; spray with perfume; use brush or beater bar when vacuuming.

Your Movement Mat is 100% natural and has been proudly brought to life with minimal processing, supporting your health and the planet.

OMG!

The wool yoga mat is everything I'd hoped for. Used for yin, it smells divine, is warm and nourishing, thick and comfortable. Light to carry. It's a dream. Highly recommend.

Thank you Jahndrina, we are delighted to hear that your wool yoga mat has matched your expectations and that you love it.
