The Benefits of Wool Rugs

Posted: Oct 05, 2007 |Comments: 0


Buying a rug is making a small, albeit important, investment in your home. But with so many choices to choose from, the process can seem a bit overwhelming. Let me enlighten you to the benefits of wool rugs.

As far as natural fibers go, wool rugs are among the most prevalent. Wool comes from sheep, yes, but wool rugs are often made in New Zealand, China and India. Wool rugs earn points for being environmentally beneficial. Wool is biodegradable, so it won’t sit without decomposing in a landfill. Wool maintains its appearance for longer that other fabrics; its high moisture content makes it naturally flame retardant; it is highly resistant to soil, making it easier to clean. Wool rugs absorb up to thirty percent of its own water weight, which helps control humidity in the home by sucking up vapor in the air. They’re durable, sustaining their quality for years, even in high traffic areas of a home. It’s non-toxic and non-allergenic, because a wool rug help purifies indoor air by locking contaminants in the core of its fiber. This means with a wool rug, there is less allergy-induced sneezing and more rubbing your feet on that soft, downy wool. Plus, it resists static electricity and doesn’t matt down the same way nylon fibers will, as well as cuts heat loss in your home by 13% because of its insulting properties by staying warm in the winter and cool in the summer.

Besides allergen prevention in your home, wool rugs are an easy way to redecorate without spending a fortune. Wool rugs offer more choices in construction, from hand-woven to hand-tufted to hand-finished. Notice the key word here: hand. Although there are machine made wool rugs, the handmade wool rugs have the kind of quality only handmade products can carry. Additionally, these area rugs come in all sorts of styles, from the elegance of traditional Persian rugs, to the modern look of contemporary rugs, to the everyday basic solid color rug. Investing in a wool rug doesn’t cost much compared to other home investments, and it both brings a room together and helps keep the floor and air cleaner. Wool retains the same beautiful look and feel for a longer period of time. So why not give yourself a taste of wool? Not literally, of course. Buy a wool rug today and start noticing the difference in your home.
