Wool - Nature’s Carpet
There are so many excellent reasons to choose wool carpet over a carpet with synthetic fibers, once you know the facts about wool the other options don’t even compare!
A Safe Choice
Every 24 seconds a fire department responds to a fire somewhere in the United States. Home is the place people feel safest from fire, but it’s actually the place they’re at greatest risk. Approximately 80% of all U.S. fire deaths occur in the home. Wool is a safe choice, as it self-extinguishes, and will not melt, drip, or give off noxious fumes like synthetic fibers. Check out this informative video that demonstrates this point.
Good For Your Health
Wool carpet fixes harmful pollutants, there’s no off-gassing and It’s inherently flame retardant. Wool carpet absorbs moisture, is hypoallergenic, and does not lay host to bed bugs or dust mites. Studies show that infants and the elderly sleep 20% better when surrounded by wool because wool has the ability to regulate temperature.
A Comfortable Choice
Providing as a moisture buffer, wool has the unparalleled ability to absorb and release moisture, allowing wool to control moisture and humidity levels, thereby creating a healthier and more comfortable environment.
A Durable Choice
Wool is incredibly resilient to crushing and wear. The wool fiber has memory which helps your carpet retain its beauty for years. The durability of wool carpet makes it a good investment and a smart choice.
A Quiet Choice
Wool absorbs sound. Wool carpet is perfect for open floor plans, as wool provides acoustical advantages by absorbing sound and reducing room-to-room noise transfer.

Wool carpet locks up carbon dioxide, rapidly regenerates, is biodegradable and versatile. Sheep grow wool continuously and can be shorn every 9-12 months, thus making wool rapidly and readily renewable. Shearing does not harm or cause pain to sheep in any way. Sheep live a free-range lifestyle.
An Affordable Choice
Most synthetic fibers are petroleum based and have gone up in price steadily in recent years, making the price difference small especially when you consider all the advantages of wool.
