Wool is made of a natural fiber that has a unique feel and a long lifespan. Wool carpets tend to be denser than carpeting made from manmade fibers, giving it a softer feel. Because the fibers are solid, wool carpet also tends to mask dirt and debris better than acrylic or nylon carpet, although advances in carpeting technology have greatly reduced the gap in quality between synthetic and natural products.
Benefits of Wool Carpet
- Wool flooring is naturally stain-resistant.
- It is naturally fire retardant.
- Like all carpeting, wool is available in a wide variety of styles and colors.
- Wool flooring is soft to the step.
To care for wool carpet, vacuum it regularly to remove any dirt trapped in the fibers. Getting your carpet professionally cleaned every year can also maximize its life and keep it looking new for many years to come.
