What is Wool Carpet Flooring?
Though wool technically also refers to the fibers from goats, oxen, camels, and rabbits, the wool carpet in your home is made from the fibers of sheep. Wool has been a vitally useful material for clothes and floor coverings since before the Middle Ages in the UK, but most wool production now occurs in Australia, China, and New Zealand.
There are many different categories and qualities of wool, but the main thing you need to know is that it is resilient, abrasion resistant, and versatile. Wool can be more expensive and does require some protection that synthetic fibers do not – but with a little care, wool is a smart investment that can last for a long time.
Advantages of Wool
Unlike synthetic materials such as nylon and polyester, wool is completely natural. That means the cozy fibers beneath your feet are environmentally friendly and completely sustainable. Here are a few other benefits of wool:
- Fire and water resistant
- Extremely soft and comfortable
- Easy to dye – lots of color and pattern options
- Eco-friendly material
- Reduces presence of volatile organic compounds (VOCs)
