The majority of Oriental rugs and contemporary area rugs are made with wool because of its durability and its beauty. 

Did you also know these 4 interesting facts about wool?

  1. Wool is capable of absorbing deep color from dyes because it drinks in the color like a sponge and locks it deep within its fibers in a unique molecular bond.  Wool is also a low luster fiber, which gives the color a rich, deep quality.
  2. Wool fiber resists staining, matting, wetting, crushing and burning, giving it durability no synthetic fiber can match. The texture of wool does not change over time, and its original color is not altered by repeated cleaning, shampooing and floor traffic.
  3. Wool is naturally flame resistant and is self-extinguishing when the source of the flame is removed. Unlike synthetics, wool rugs do not melt. The affected fibers will char, but minor burns can be easily brushed away.  This is because of the high moisture content of wool fiber.
  4. Wool fibers are covered by a thin membrane which is highly water repellent. Spills can easily be mopped up with a sponge before they are absorbed.  Wool’s naturally high moisture content reduces static electricity and shocks.
