Wool has been woven into mats and blankets for a long time. Wool rugs are valued for their quality, durability, warmth, comfort and ease of care. Wool offers a deep, rich look and feel with brilliant versatility and toughness. It’s usually fade-resistant and resists dirt and soil because the strands are pressed so tightly. As a result, wool floor coverings tend to be more expensive than engineered floor coverings. Wool rugs are known for their comfort and strength. Due to the natural oils contained in wool, it is an extremely dirt-repellent floor covering. Wool covers also have the great advantage that they are flame retardant and prone to hypersensitivity. Perhaps one of the best performing types of flooring, wool ensures that the carpet does not wear out or level off over time, but rather looks new.
While it can be exceedingly tempting to completely cover an entire room, there are a few downsides to covering end to end. Pickled rugs pick up dust and other allergens, which can be a problem if you or someone living in your home has asthma. Thoroughly cleaning this type of rug can be quite a hassle as it is basically difficult to bring one end to the other rug once it is in place. Then again, wool carpets are far from difficult to evacuate and perfect, as well as complementing hardwood floors quite well.
