Why Choose Wool Carpets?
Those with a sense of style – and a sense of value – choose wool carpets and rugs. Why? Because wool simply looks beautiful, longer. Natural wool carpet ages gracefully, continually renewing itself and developing a rich patina as years pass. While synthetic fibers will become scratched, scarred and dull over time, wool carpets and rugs remain vibrant to the eye and supple to touch.
Wool is durable, beautiful, and provides comfort and safety — and it’s a renewable resource! The better the fiber, the better the carpet.
The History Of Wool Carpets
Man has been using wool from sheep for a long time. Sheep were first domesticated over nine thousand years ago and introduced to Europe around 4000 BC. Wool has been used all this time to clothe people and to warm their homes.The reason wool has been used for so long is that it has many incredible features that nature has built-in over the centuries. For example wool can keep you warm when it is cold, and keeps you cool when it is hot. Wool is flame retardant and does not melt like nylon or polyester carpets. Wool carpets actually clean the air around them absorbing toxins and locking them in for up to thirty years. Wool carpets are even scientifically proven to be allergy safe and ideal for people suffering from asthma as they trap dust from the breathing zone.
Wool Carpets: A Smart, Allergy-Safe Flooring
Whether you choose wool carpets because they are ecological, beautiful or inherently superior to other carpet fibers, it is the natural choice for carpets and rugs in your home or commercial environment. It doesn’t matter if you are on the French Riviera, The Alps, or sunny San Diego; wool carpet performs wonderfully in all climates!
Your style demands high design and high performance; natural wool delivers, year after year after year.
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 just like a miniature spring.
Same reaction when it’s compressed. Resilience. Something wool is born with.
Wool carpets can recover easily from the unsightly crushing caused by furniture. The resiliency of each wool fiber makes an important contribution to the superior appearance retention of wool carpeting.

Wool Carpets Feel Good
Wool is soft to touch and provides a comfortable surface for you, your children and your pets. By choosing from the various styles available, you can select exactly the feel that you want. The natural resilience of wool makes it feel good to walk on. The crimp in wool acts like a coiled spring, gently absorbing each footstep. The pile structure provides both traction and stability, creating a comfortable and secure walking surface. Because wool has a natural texture it feels crisp rather than sticky like nylon.
