Lilac Poppies Ironing Board Cover 1 "Surface too rough!" Miss Tye 01 April 2014 I'm not happy at all with my Poppies ironing board cover. The surface is very rough so my clothes get stuck to the cover when I'm ironing them, and they're being pulled out of shape every time I try to move them around the board. I would not recommend this ironing board cover to anyone as the surface is just too rough to be useable - I'm afraid I'll be binning mine! I wish I'd bought one of Lakeland's other ironing board covers - there are some which do describe their surface as being smooth in the product descriptions. With the Poppies cover, I'd just presumed this was a given! A note from the team Thanks for placing your review. We're sorry that the surface of the Poppies cover is too rough and will be in touch shortly.
