Before we explore all the benefits of a wool rug, it is important to stress that the use of wool is very ancient. Indeed, nomadic tribes were among the first to appreciate the advantages of wool.

Strength: Wool is an incredibly resistant material, which copes with wear and tear very well. In fact, the extra money you spend on a wool rug will come back to you through the rug’s longevity.

Colour: Wool is superb when it comes to absorbing dye. This is good because it gives you a very intense colour.

Stain resistance: Wool is easy to clean and very stain resistant compared with synthetic fabric.

Seasonal adaptation
: It is well known that wool is the master material of the winter. However, a lesser-known fact is that wool is actually good in summer as well. That’s because it helps absorb humid air.

Older the better: Wool rugs age beautifully. Over the years a patina-covered rug can lead to fabulous muted colours.

Feel: Have you ever walked barefoot on a wool rug? If so, you will know all about the softness. There is absolutely no comparison with artificial fibres.
