Wool carpet is the stylish choice for every home. It’s durable and beautiful, and a renewable resource. Here are some reasons to consider wool carpeting for your home.
Wool carpets last longer and stay cleaner. Wool is naturally soil resistant—its protective outer layer traps dirt in the upper area of the carpet pile so it can be easily removed by vacuuming. Wool also hides soil particles away from view, so your carpet will look cleaner.
Carpet is an excellent choice for bedrooms when you want a soft, comfortable flooring surface. But some people shy away from carpeting in the bedroom, due to allergy concerns. Wool carpeting acts as a natural air filter, trapping allergens like dust and pollen and keeping them out of the air.
We’re all trying to reduce our environmental impact these days and the choices we make for our home do make a difference. Wool is the ultimate renewable fiber—it grows continuously on a sheep’s back all year round. At the end of its useful life, wool carpets can be recycled into new products.
You can also get the long lasting and allergy reducing benefits of wool in an area rug. Even if you have wood or tile floors, an area rug is useful for sound absorption and defining spaces within a room.
