Wool textiles – such as carpets, rugs, upholstery, beds and bedding - offer the home a beautiful and highly practical option for home décor. Wool is a natural fibre that offers amazing versatility and provides high levels of proven performance, so you can be sure woollens will withstand the rigours of everyday family life whilst maintaining their great appearance for many years.
Colour and Texture
Wool offers incredible choice. The excellent dye holding properties of wool means woollen fabrics and floor coverings are available in every shade, pattern and texture. All of which combine to offer a stunning interior design.
Comfort, warmth, peace and quiet
Wool offers several levels of unique comfort to the interior environment which all add to the enjoyment of your home. Wool provides a soft and luxurious feeling to flooring and softly cushions your tread. It is warm and cosy, helps reduce heat loss which in turn helps improve energy efficiency, saving money and carbon. What’s more, wool carpets, curtains and upholstery provide excellent sound absorption – reducing sound reverberation within rooms and helping reduce the transfer of noise from room to room and floor to floor.
Durability with long lasting appearance
Wool has a uniquely robust quality which enables it to resist flattening and create bounce back despite repeated pressure. Wool carpets maintain a great appearance despite heavy footfall, making wool floor coverings perfect for the busy pathways in the home. Wool upholstery can also withstand perpetual use whilst retaining colour and form. Within a mattress, wool offers excellent support and the unique bulk of wool will continually maintain its structure within the bed.
Cleaner Internal Air
Enjoying a unique natural cell structure, wool can work in harmony with its environment, enabling it to breathe and absorb moisture – reducing the level of humidity in the room. It is hypoallergenic, will limit floating dust by capturing the particles in its top layer until vacuumed. Woollens can reduce contaminants within the air by its ability to absorb continuously and hold them within their core permanently.
A high nitrogen and water content make wool a naturally fire retardant fibre which is hard to ignite. Wool has low flame spread and will not drip, melt or release noxious fumes. Also wool flooring can offer improved protection from slips and falls in the home where there are elderly people or young children.
Wool is a practical and easy to maintain interior fibre. The fibre’s structure repels soiling and does not absorb spills immediately allowing time for blotting up. A regular vacuuming is all that is required to lift soiling and refresh the pile of a carpet.
