Wool carpet is generally considered a luxury product. It 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 its fibers are solid, wool carpet also tends to mask dirt and debris better than nylon and acrylic, although advances in carpeting technology have greatly reduced the gap in quality between synthetic and natural products.
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.
Benefits of Wool Carpet
- Sheep hair is a biodegradable material as well a sustainable resource. Wool carpet won’t sit in a landfill for years like other synthetic options.
- Wool carpet hides dirt easier than other carpet types due to its opaque fibers.
- It resists moisture, which prevents mold and mildew from growing.
- Wool carpet has insulating qualities that help keep the warm or cool air in.
