Color fastness of wool carpets
The complex structure of wool ensures that color is drawn right into the very heart of the fiber where it becomes locked in at a molecular level. Because the color is locked into your wool carpet, it can’t be rubbed off by walking, furniture movement and other scuffing activities and will retain its good looks longer.
Dye absorption of wool carpets
Because of its high protein content, wool naturally absorbs dyes which make their way into the wool and attach themselves to the many receptive sites it offers. This natural affinity for dye is the reason why wool carpets come in such a myriad of fashion shades and design combinations.
Wool is particularly good at absorbing dye because it’s unique properties that have been bred into the sheep over time. The depth of shade and clarity of color from wool cannot be achieved on any other fiber.
