Is Nylon or Wool Carpet Better?
Wool is a natural fiber and a 100% renewable resource as it comes from the coat of a sheep. Wool is naturally durable, resilient, and comfortable. Read below to see a breakdown of the benefits of wool.
Wool Wall to Wall Carpet
Wool’s natural crimp makes it a resilient fiber that holds its retention, so heavy furniture won’t leave a permanent indent. It “wears gracefully” making it look newer for longer. Because wool is a natural fiber, it absorbs dyes and retains them staying vibrant for longer. Due to the oils found in wool, it can resist stains and is even fire retardant.
What is the Benefit of a Wool Rug?
Wool carpet is considered an investment not due to its cost, but due to the fact that you will have the same wool carpet in your home for years longer and most other fibers. Wool is an energy efficient product, helping regulate temperature in the home by keeping a room cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Referring back to the natural oils in wool making it stain resistant, means you spend less time worrying about keeping it clean. Wool’s best selling point is that it is renewable and recyclable.
Wool Flooring Benefits
The natural look of wool and the way it feels by hand or underfoot cannot be replicated by synthetic fibers. Its softness is appealing to the eye and allows for a comfortable cozy look on your floor. Wools natural luster and ability to slightly reflect light makes it look elegant and embodies a peaceful background.
