Considering A Wool Carpet
Wool carpets have a natural, soft and luxurious feel. The long lasting beauty and superior characteristics of wool carpet will enhance your home for years to come.
Wool shorn from sheep is completely natural. It is composed entirely of amino acids, the building blocks of life. In soil, wool readily biodegrades to produce nitrogen, sulphur, carbon dioxide and water, which are all plant nutrients.
Naturally Stain and Soil Resistant
Wool carpets clean better, making stain protection unnecessary. The wool fibre’s structure consists of overlapping scales, arranged much like roof shingles. These scales inhibit dirt from adhering to the fibre and help fleck it away. Wool has significantly better soil release than any other fibre.
The wool fibre is naturally curly, and it has more crush resistance than any other fibre. Wool carpet fibres recover from crushing better than any other carpet fibres.
Wool carpet's natural properties help keep your home cool in summer and warm in winter.
Godfrey Hirst is one of the largest wool carpet manufacturers in the world, and provide an exceptional selection of value-priced wool carpets.
Environmentally sound, wool is produced from a totally renewable resource – grass – that is shorn from Sheep every 9 – 12 months.
Natural Flame Retardant
Wool carpets are naturally flame retardant because of its high protein content. If ignited, wool only burns weakly, limiting the spread of the flame.
Improves Air Quality
Wool carpet naturally improves the indoor air quality of your home. It stabilizes relative humidity by absorbing or releasing moisture during periods of high or low atmospheric humidity. If well maintained, it absorbs and neutralizes airborne particles and fumes.
Wool has been used in carpeting for centuries. Its unique natural properties have seen it stand the test of time as the premier flooring.
Wool is the luxury carpet fibre. It probably holds the most advantages over all fibres. So to summarize what distinguishes wool is that it has more advantages such as being all natural, more comfortable, fire resistant, and arguably is as durable as other floorings like nylon, but it requires more care. Typically, nylon and Smartstrand carpets take whatever you throw at them: spills, moving furniture, and constant foot traffic.
