Wool Dry Mop
Colorful genuine wool dust mop with 48" handle. Draws dust like a magnet and releases it with a shake. Swivel connector makes walls, floors, and furniture easy to access. Recycled poplar handle. Made by a fourth-generation family business in Vermont. (
This wool mop has all the abilities of a sweater to attract dust and lint, and naturally occurring lanolin in the wool will hold dust and release it without sticking and clogging. After a big job, take the mop outside, give it a shake and it’s ready for reuse.
The swivel head maneuvers around edges and corners and is attached with Velcro for easy removal and cleaning.
Use & Care
To clean wool head, remove by peeling from the frame and sliding it out of the pocket on the opposite side. Wash head with soap and water. Air dry.
The hardwood handle is lacquered. You can apply furniture polish as necessary to further enhance its natural luster.
Production & Design
The Slack Dust Mop Company was started by Alexander P. Slack, who began in 1909 with a piece of copper wire that held cotton rags and was used as a wet mop. He ended up with a patent for his coiled wire mop holder, which he and his seven sons sold door to door. Today, his great grandson Thomas G. Slack III continues the fourth generation of the Slack Mop business in rural Vermont.
Each mop head is made one at a time by hand with multi-colored yarn spun from remnants of wool carpet from South Carolina and Georgia. The hardwood handle comes from recycled poplar wood out of the northern US and is lacquered to enhance the woodâ€™s shine and luster.
