Los Angeles-based Graf Lantz designer is all about Merino wool—even for coasters—for a good reason: Naturally hydrophobic, felt wool is an ideal material to help keep your tabletops dry. These coasters are inspired by “Bierfilzl,” or traditional felt beer coasters, so they’re also extremely durable and heavy-duty. Grab your set of four in the colors of your choice!
