As mentioned above, wool oozes a sense of luxury, but also authenticity. Wool, being a natural product comes in beautiful earthy tones, it looks elegant and of high quality. While other materials try to mimic the look of wool, nothing beats the original.


Naturally an insulator, wool carpets provide warmth during the cooler months like no other fibre. Don’t be concerned that it will make a room too hot in summer however as it can regulate temperature well.

Wool is certainly at the higher end of the market so when deciding to specify wool, you would hope that it would be long-lasting- it really is. Not only is it a durable material, it’s also quite good at repelling scuffs and stains with its natural oils.

Fire resistance

It is comforting to know that wool carpet is naturally fire-resistant. What this means is, in comparison to other carpet fibres, the rate of flames spreading and smoke produced is lower.

Sustainability credentials

Wool is kind to the environment as it is sustainably sourced, is a renewable resource and is also biodegradable. As we become more aware of the need to look after our planet, this can only be a good thing!
