Hey-- it's worth a shot. I don't know why it wouldn't work. Personally, I can't see spending so much $ on one of those wool mats. I have a yard of wool that I washed several times in hot water to "felt" it. I guess I wasn't impressed with it enough to want to spend big dollars for a real pressing mat.
A couple years ago, some of us here in Texas-and Patty in Oklahoma went to the Dallas Quilt Show. Patty and Dee went in together on the large wool mat, then they cut it in half. Dee kept hers in half, Patty cut her half in half and I paid her my half of her half. Lol sounds crazy but it was a great savings for the 3 of us.
Well, I used a stack of 6 sheets today, and everything turned out fine. No slippage, no heat going through to the bottom layer. I did not use steam, irin set on cotton, and seams pressed open crisply. I do not have a wool mat to make a comparison with, but $4 of Joann's polyester felt worked pretty well. If you try this, let me know how it goes for you.

I requested a wool mat for Christmas. I love it. it really makes a difference when I press my seams.
I agree with you 100%, Cathy. I bought the 14" x 24" size and I think it is awesome.
I have not used mine much, especially after I realized the moisture goes through and warped my cutting mat. I think i like my big board with layers of cotton covered plywood the best.
I actually put mine in my ironing board. I don't use steam but my really hot iron for pressing blocks. I often use steam for pressing yardage. I don't make things really convenient for me like have it right near my sewing machine. It make me get up and move! I get stiff if I don't.
