One of the most widely used carpet fibers in the world is wool, making textured wool carpet a material of choice to provide luxurious softness and comfort. Wool carpet may be more expensive than other materials, but can last up to five decades with proper care. Carpets made of wool are environmentally friendly, produced of natural fibers that are fully recyclable, and provide many benefits over synthetic fibers to those suffering with allergies.
Wool Carpet Benefits
There are many benefits to choosing textured wool carpet over other fiber types, making wool a desirable choice for many applications. Some benefits of wool fiber carpets include:
- Less irritation to allergy sufferers: wool is proven to provide less irritation to those suffering with allergy or breathing problems, as the fibers absorb suspended dust particles making them less likely to enter the lungs. Dust particles will remain on the surface where they are easily removed with vacuuming.
- Long lasting shape retention: textured wool carpets will retain their shape and appearance for several decades as the fibers are coated with a thin membrane which prevents any dampness from seeping into the carpet.
- Unparalleled softness of wool: wool carpet can be more costly than other synthetic fibers, although the fluffy, bouncy texture of wool carpets provides value with unparalleled softness that stands the test of time.
