Exquisite wool carpeting is environmentally friendly and is quite an amazing material provided by nature. Wool rugs are in fashion and they’re remarkable. There are many interesting facts about wool which explain its brilliant qualities.
Wool has a rate of stain-resistance that’s 30% better than synthetic fibers. What makes wool so wonderfully stain-resistant? There is a natural light wax that coats the surface of wool fibers. This veneer helps to prevent dirt and stains from penetrating the wool or from leaving any residue on or near the surface.
Wool quickly recovers from crushing or indenting caused by footsteps or furniture. Why is that? It’s because wool is very resilient; this is a feature about wool that protects sheep from various climates and elements. Wool fiber can be stretched more than 35% and still easily return back to its natural shape. The natural resilience of wool keeps your carpet looking new and fresh for a lot longer than many other types of flooring. So while wool rugs may cost a little bit more than a synthetic rug up front, their remarkable durability makes them actually a more economical choice in the long run.
Why is wool so incredibly water-resistant? The protective barriers mentioned above also prevent water from easily penetrating the wool fibers. Additionally, wool is able to absorb about 1/3 of its weight in moisture and not feel damp.
What are three reasons that a wool rug is a safe choice for your family? First, wool fibers are naturally flame-resistant. Secondly, wool acts as a natural air purifier. Thirdly, unlike many synthetic rugs, wool doesn’t emit harmful chemicals into the air.
Why is dyed wool resistant to fading? The process used to dye the wool fibers produces lasting results.
