When we think of wool a thick winter jacket might come to mind, or perhaps a heavy blanket perfect for wrapping yourself in on a brisk fall day. Wool is made from the hair of sheep, which has long been depended on for its insulating qualities. Among other benefits wool carpet offers tremendous thermal insulation. Here we’ve taken the time to discuss this timeless material in depth. We encourage you to read on, and to consider adding wool carpet to your Woodridge home!
Wool Carpet Advantages
Insulating— The hair of sheep grows in crimped and elastic tufts, making it great at trapping and holding heat. Perhaps its greatest advantage, wool carpet offers thermal insulation that’s unmatched by other carpet varieties. This makes it particularly great for homeowners that experience harsh falls and winters. Its thermal insulation will help to keep heating costs down.
Cozy—Apart from the literal warmth wool carpet provides it also triggers feelings of coziness. It’s denser than carpets constructed using manmade fibers, which results in a softer feel. We should mention that technology has greatly reduced the gap in quality between synthetic and natural carpets. However, many homeowners still choose to stick with wool carpet due to its longstanding reputation for being extremely high quality.
Eco-Friendly—Similar to bamboo, wool grows quickly and abundantly, making it a highly renewable resource. Homeowners can rest easy knowing that no sheep were harmed in the making of their wool carpet, and with the knowledge that their wool carpet won’t one day end up in a landfill. Wool carpet is a popular option for homeowners looking to either limit their exposure to manmade chemicals or wanting to add natural elements to their home.
