and warm, wool is, paradoxically, one of the coolest fibers
Soft, yet resilient, it can withstand the toughest treatment and
are just a few of wool’s many promises:
carpet is able to retain its original appearance much longer than other
carpets because it has bulk and bounce which withstand heavy pressure and
repeated footfall. Scientists have attributed this to the fact that each
wool hair, or fiber, contains a three-dimensional spiraling crimp that
acts like a miniature spring. These springs give each fiber elasticity,
to compress under furniture or shoes and then bounce back to its original
shape when the pressure is lifted. This unique fiber structure is what
makes wool carpet outperform carpets made from synthetic fibers.
has a natural resistance to staining because each fiber is covered by a
thin membrane that acts as a repellant and prevents water from penetrating
the surface of the wool fiber. Another reason why wool carpets are able
to retain their original appearance.
Resistant to Soil and Dirt
you were to look at a wool fiber under a microscope, you would see that
its surface is made up of overlapping scales, much like a roof. These scales
trap soil and dirt at the top of the fiber, near the surface of the carpet.
It is then easily and quickly released when vacuumed.
high moisture and protein content of wool fibers gives wool carpet
natural flame resistance. Wool fibers will not support combustion and are
difficult to ignite. In addition, they are self-extinguishable when the
flame source is removed.
Benefits & More
Wool carpet is non-toxic, non-allergenic and will not support bacterial
The high moisture content of wool reduces static electricity and the risk
Wool carpet purifies indoor air of common contaminants like formaldehyde,
dioxide and sulfur dioxide by locking the contaminants deep in the core
of the fiber. Wool carpets continually purify indoor air for up to 30 years.
Another benefit of wool’s naturally crimped shape is the formation of
of air pockets that act as insulation to help regulate room
and reduce energy bills.
Wools' high moisture content and protein constituents make it naturally
flame retardent. Most traces of fire place or cigarette embers can be brushed
Wool has the ability to absorb up to 30% of its own weight in water
without feeling wet and therefore, helps to control humidity.
because of this, it naturally resists static electricity.
Wool is a natural insulator for both heat and sound. As wool is
it can either absorb moisture or release moisture, creating
It will therefore, keep you cool in Summer and warm in Winter.
Wool also has the ability to absorb other things from the atmosphere. For
example, it is capable of absorbing large amounts of Formaldehyde, which
is commonly found in alot of buildings. Obviously, wool carpets also have
other natural properties in terms of their resilience, resistant to 80%
of all stains and similarly, naturally resistant to dirt. The scale structure
keeps dirt particles to the surface.
and Cleaning Information
understand that you don’t have the time to spend on time-consuming
which can also be expensive. With a minimum amount of routine care and
maintenance, your wool carpet will steadfastly retain its original texture,
color and overall appearance. These simple tips will help you maintain
its top condition:
Expect new wool carpet to shed its loose fibers in the beginning. This
gradually decrease in the first couple of months until it becomes
Regular vacuuming is wool carpet’s best friend as it will pick up these
fibers as well as the soil and dirt that is held by the wool fibers at
carpet’s surface and keep it looking fresh and clean.
Slow and careful vacuum strokes over the carpet is more effective than
a quick run over. This will do more to groom the carpet and help it to
To clean up a liquid spill, first blot it up with a clean, dry absorbent
as quickly as possible. Then blot the area with a clean towel dampened
with hot water to pull the substance up from the surface of the carpet.
Continue to blot with clean, dry towels until the area does not leave wet
spots on the towel.
Avoid using soap to clean spills as it is difficult to thoroughly get out
carpet and will attract dirt and make dark spots on the carpet in the
Avoid rubbing strokes with the cloth as you clean, as this would disrupt
appearance of the fibers.
