Etching Press Blankets – Set of Two

These etching press blankets are specifically for use with tabletop etching presses. They come as a set of two, the slight difference in weights of the two blankets, ensures you get perfect prints every time. Cut to 70cm by 100cm, both blankets will fit a wide range of presses. If you require a different set of dimensions, we can cut fabric to size. Please feel free to contact us, we’re always happy to help.

100% and 95% Woven Merino Wool

Over time the number of blankets used with printmaking presses has changed as presses have improved. Depending on the type of plate being printed, up to three or more blankets were often used. With modern etching presses, the standard is now to use just two blankets.

Both the blankets we supply in this set, have a high merino wool content. The heavier ecru blanket is 100% Merino wool with a dense, tight weave and felted surface. The coloured blanket is a 95% Merino and 5% nylon mix. It too has a tight weave but is lighter in weight and is a supple, easy to work with fabric.
