Why Choose Wool Carpet

Wool carpets have always had a reputation for quality and durability. Wool as a fibre can withstand extreme pressure, has a beautiful appearance and excellent retention properties. The best wool for carpet production is the ‘string’ wool. This type can be found on sheep breeds located mainly in Britain and New Zealand. The British wool is bulky, tough and offers a unique texture while the New Zealand one is a lot softer and whiter, and makes it the ideal material for plan or lighter shade ranges.

Wool has inner texture strength and doesn’t necessarily need any other fibre to improve its performance.Yet, in certain circumstances and for particular reasons it is often being blended with other fibres, often man made ones.

Strength and resistance
As we mentioned above, wool provides superb performance with its long lasting durability.It has a natural crimp, meaning it can offer a ‘bounce-back’. This will result in the pile compression, tracking marks and shading being significantly reduced. That is why wool carpets are able to maintain such a good appearance for many years.

Easy maintenance
Wool is a natural fibre and contains natural oils. They are resistant to soiling so, the only need is to have the carpet regularly vacuumed.

Comfort
There’s nothing such luxurious as the comfort and warmth of a wool carpet. It is energy efficient as it will act as an insulator keeping the house warm. Wool will also absorb sound and will cushion against echoes and noise from the family.

Fire resistance
Wool is naturally fire resistant and is with an extremely slow ignition rate.

Fall friendly
The wool carpet will act as a cushion and will prevent any serious injury in fall. This is particularly the case when it is installed over a good quality underlay.

Environmental issue
Wool is a so called ‘smart’ fibre and can help create a balanced atmosphere in any home. It can also absorb humidity in the air and will then release it back when the atmosphere goes dry.

Biodegradable
Wool is biodegradable to 100%. It will produce sulphur, nitrogen, carbon dioxide and water which are all plant nutrients.
