Wool is an exceptional carpet fiber and is known for its softness and durability. It is very resilient, holds up to abrasion over a long period of time and cleans very well. Top brands are known to last for 50-60 years or more if properly cared for. Wool carpet is probably not ideal for sunrooms or areas in your home that are exposed to excessive sunlight.

Why Choose Wool Carpet?
Choosing wool carpet for your wall to wall installation is an excellent option if you are seeking superior quality, durability and longevity. The characteristics of strength, natural beauty and comfort ensure that you will not be disappointed with your choice.
Oriental rug weavers have known for centuries that wool is the ideal fiber for rug weaving, so why not choose wool for your carpet? Most of our wool carpet brands are made of New Zealand wool which is known for superior quality. Look for the “New Zealand Wool” seal. In addition, many wool carpet manufacturers offer certified environmental products.
Wool Carpet Blends
Wool carpet is not just for high end homes. Carpet manufacturers have created wool blends by combining other fibers such as nylon, olefin and polyester with wool. Wool carpet blends help to bring down the cost but retain the high performance characteristics of wool. We sell many wool blends that are well priced in a multitude of colors and patterns.
