Wool Area Rugs

Wool is probably the most typical material to produce rugs for a lot of factors.

Wool area rugs are stunning, long-lasting, and an all-natural option to area rugs and carpets produced from man-made materials. For hundreds of years, individuals have been making stunning and distinctive wool area rugs, and today obtaining wool area rugs has not been simpler, or even more convenient.

Why should you select wool for your rug? Many reasons exist, such as:

Stain Resistance: Wool is of course stain-resistant because of the fact that every individual fiber is covered with a membrane layer that naturally repels water and spills. This prevents color pollutants from going through deep into the pile of the carpet. Wool usually can be cleaned with just a vacuum cleaner, and a damp cloth, along with a little hard work.

Sturdiness: You can position a wool carpet within an area in your home with heavy foot traffic. Wool area rugs have the ability to keep their original shape considerably longer than other kinds of area rugs, for the very same reason that they are naturally spot and water repellent. Every strand of wool, as well as being covered with a protective membrane, can also be curly and functions just like a spring. This means even in higher traffic locations, wool rugs normally spring back into place.

Wellness: Wool is effortlessly hypo-allergenic and has been proven to actually behave as an all-natural air cleaner by absorbing typical household pollutants in the air (such as chemicals), deep into the fibers of the carpet. Since it is naturally water-resistant, wool area rugs, in contrast to other kinds of carpets and rugs, don’t support the development of mold. Wool also behaves as an all-natural insulator, offering warmth during the cold months and supplying year-round humidity control. Also, because of wool’s lower rate of flame spread, and the fact it doesn’t dissolve or drip, wool is easily the most fire resilient of all of the textile materials.

Because of so many benefits, you can easily understand why a wool rug is really a great investment.
