Wool Carpet Buyers Guide

Carpets and rugs are made from many materials, including wool.

Why choose wool for your carpet and rugs?

Wool carpet is the ideal soft floor covering for many reasons. It is durable, resilient, and most importantly a renewable resource. Its fibers are natural which makes them long lasting and resistant to dirt and staining as well as crushing. In addition, it is also flame retardant, making your home even safer. It’s for these reasons that it is the easiest soft floor covering material to keep clean and maintain over the lifespan of the material.

When dyed, wool carpet excels in both its depth and color clarity. The color is locked into the rug or carpet and it can’t be rubbed off by walking on it or through the movement of furniture. This means your rug or carpet will retain its look for a longer time than any other type of material.
