Wool Carpet Fiber
From the sheep’s back to your floor, wool is considered by many to be the very best carpet material available. Sure, it’s the most expensive, but for good reason. It’s natural, durable, luxurious, soft, flame resistant, water repellant and environmentally friendly. And shockingly, it doesn’t conduct static electricity. It’s also the most stain resistant carpet available, so enjoy that red wine without worry.
Wool carpets come as Saxony, berber or twisted frieze. Use carpet cleaners designed especially for wool and you’ll enjoy your wool carpeting for a long, long time.
