Here in Murphy, carpet is a household staple. It provides a softness and comfort that can make any room a little extra cozy. However, out of all the carpet materials available to Murphy homeowners, wool is by far the most luxurious. The experts at Floor Coverings International Rockwall love wool because it is incredibly soft, durable, and eco-friendly. Learn more about this unique flooring option below!
Wool Carpet Basics
Wool carpet – as with most other wool products – is made from sheep’s hair. Due to its natural origins, wool carpeting is an eco-friendly carpet material. Unlike with nylon or polyester, wool is not derived from a nonrenewable resource like oil, and it can safely biodegrade upon disposal.
You can’t tell the difference between a wool carpet and any other regular carpet just by looking at it. Wool carpets are available in the same variety of colors, patterns, styles, and pile heights as other common carpets. Due to its price, however, wool tends to be more commonly used in area rugs.
The structure of a wool hair makes it exceptionally soft and warm. These are qualities that many homeowners seek in their ideal carpet. The texture of a wool carpet is simply unmatched, especially by lower quality synthetic carpets. Wool’s exceptional insulating ability also makes it wonderfully comfortable underfoot, perfect for cold winter nights.
Unlike many natural carpet materials, wool is incredibly durable. In fact, it competes with the highly durable nylon fiber. Wool hairs are very resistant to crimping, crushing, and abrasion. Wool might cost more than a regular synthetic carpet, but with the proper care, it can outlive ordinary carpets. It’s not often that something so durable can feel so soft!
Wool Carpet Water Resistance
Of course, no carpet is ideal for a moist environment like the bathroom or kitchen. However, spills on carpet are inevitable. Wool fibers tend to trap moisture, making them prone to mold and mildew growth. As long as you install your wool carpet in a dry room where spills and accidents are unlikely to occur, your carpet will be safe from water damage. Simply blot up any liquid as soon as it spills to prevent damage.
