Wool Is the Ultimate Eco-Friendly Fiber

Wool is a sustainable and renewable carpet option that has two natural attributes that supersedes synthetic materials. Wool is powered by nature’s resources and comes from the Sheep’s own constantly renewing world… Grass, sun, rain, and fertile soil energize this natural “factory.” It is biodegradable and promotes healthier living indoor air quality, moderating a room’s climate as well as temperature. Wool offers superior performance and a longer life cycle adding to the green benefits by avoiding replacement materials, transportation, and energy utilization when compared to synthetic carpet products. Wool means LESS.

Superior Performance

Due to the natural crimp that is inherent in high quality wool fiber, it provides a superior texture retention and resilience. Overtime, wool carpet wears gracefully and simply looks better, longer. It is naturally soil and stain resistant. Due to its natural properties, it also is self-extinguishing and suits well in casinos, airlines, and cruise ships. Wool has a natural ability to accept and hold dye, exceptionally for brighter, rich colors that last over longer periods of time.

Quality Carpet Options

Our carpets are engineered resulting in ease of installation, quality, color consistency, and maximum performance. With triple blended wool fibers, scoured yarn, and high twist yarns, we ensure wool carpet provides beautiful, high-performing, and comfortable options.
