Albeit different materials are utilized for the heap (silk, for instance), fleece is the most regularly utilized. The nature of the fleece is perhaps of the main calculate deciding the general nature of the mat; on the off chance that the unrefined components are poor, the completed item will be poor. The fleece heap ought to be glossy, with a characteristic sheen delivered by the lanolin; it ought not be dull.
