The Natural, Eco-friendly Carpet

Carpet isn’t often talked about when eco-friendly flooring is discussed, but natural wool carpet is a renewable resource and sustainable choice for our environment than most other carpets. Sheep are sheared in the summer and their wool grows in fully by the time winter arrives. because sheep’s wool grows back so quickly, wool carpeting is a great choice for the environmentally-friendly home.

Benefits

Natural wool carpets offer great insulation and are also very durable. Wool is often harder to damage and easier to clean than some other carpet choices. Part of this is due to wool being water-resistant and stain-resistant. If you spill water on wool it doesn’t instantly soak it up, giving you time to clean your carpet before the liquid does damage or settles in. Wool carpeting is also hypoallergenic, resistant to fire, and a natural humidifier due to its ability to absorb moisture without damaging its fibers.

Design

Wall-to-wall wool carpet has more design options than you might think. When you think of a sheep’s wool, you might think your only option for color is white. However, wool can be dyed many colors, and we can help you find the right one to match your design aesthetic. Thanks to its durability, wool is also a great carpet solution for stairs, an area that’s often less forgiving with other types of carpet. In areas such as entryways and non-carpeted living rooms, wool is also a great material for doormats and area rugs, allowing you to incorporate wool into areas where you might not want wall-to-wall carpeting.
