Wool Fibre

BritishWoolWool is an age old tradition that has been used for thousands of years to provide a complex fiber that has been used for many products including carpets. There are many benefits of wool carpet over synthetics.

Wool is very resilient and its texture allows it to very quickly recover from crushing or indenting caused by footsteps or furniture. This natural resilience also keeps the carpet looking new and fresh for longer periods of time.

Wool has a natural ability to resist staining and soiling. In fact it has more than a 30% higher rate of stain resistance than even the best synthetic fibers. Its so good at resisting stains because of the natural light wax that coats the surface of the wool. This coating helps stop dirt and stains from actually penetrating the wool leaving any soiling on or near the surface. Thats why when wool is stained it is very easy to clean.

Wool fiber is also flame resistant providing natural flame retardant without the addition of chemicals. Because of this wool is an excellent choice for carpeting for any room in your home and especially for childrens rooms.

Wool is also very durable and will last for many years without showing signs of wear. Surprisingly wool carpet only costs slightly more than synthetic fibers and because of its exceptional long life it is by far a wiser choice than other types of carpet. You will quickly recoup the extra cost in the additional years of wear.

sheepSheep produce wool to protect themselves from a variety of climates and natural elements. Of course when man uses wool these natural capabilities remain intact. Natural wool actually has two different types of wool cells the orthcortex and the paracortex.

Each lies on the opposite side of the fiber and grow at different rates. This causes a coil spring that makes the wool very elastic. The natural shock absorber allows the wool to quickly spring back to its original form. In fact wool fiber can be stretched more than 35% and still easily return back to its natural shape.

But more than being water resistant wool is able to absorb about 1/3 of its weight in moisture and yet still not feel damp. This natural quality of wool allows it to remain warm and recover from pressure points quickly.

Wool carpet is available in a wide selection of styles, patterns, and designs. Because of the process used to dye wool carpet the colors are fade resistant and unless they are exposed to direct sunlight on a continuous basis you should experience very little fading.

Wool has the ability to provide a long lasting functional product that exhibits outstanding beauty. There are a variety of patterns and styles available in wool carpets and these days old world craftsmanship is being combined with new world technologies to produce outstanding results. A wool carpet will provide you with years of enjoyment and durability.
