Known as nature’s miracle fiber, wool is a naturally renewable, biodegradable resource with a low carbon footprint. There are tons of reasons to have wool carpets in your home:
BENEFITS OF WOOL
Wool carpets have outstanding easy-care properties. They’re flame and stain resistant, as well as extremely resilient. These are not achievable characteristics for other chemically treated floor coverings.
Naturally Flame Retardant
The high moisture content of wool fibers, along with its protein constituents, provide wool carpets with excellent natural flame resistance. Wool fibers will not support combustion and are very difficult to ignite due to its self-extinguishable abilities.
Naturally Stain Resistant
The surface of this wool is covered by a thin protective membrane which gives this fiber the ability to shed water. This membrane prevents water from readily penetrating the individual wool fibers. When you consider that 80% of the carpet stains are water-based, you begin to realize how important this property is.
Each wool fiber has a three-dimensional spiraling crimp which gives it natural elasticity. This elasticity means that a wool fiber can stretch up to 30% more than its original length and then bounce back; like a miniature spring.
Wool is a non-allergenic fiber. It does not promote the growth of bacteria, dust mites, or give off chemical emission.
Hard-wearing and easy to clean, it’s no surprise that wool has been a mainstay in rug and carpet weaving for centuries! This versatile fiber is made in a wide range of attractive patterns, from classic florals to bold geometric designs.
