Carpet types to choose from
WOOL MIX FOR QUALITY AND LONGEVITY
Soft, Deep Pile
Sinking your feet into a soft, Deep Pile carpet adds a touch of luxury. Ideal for bedrooms, deep, soft pile carpets can also be used on stairs or lounges for an extra touch of comfort. Developments in technology have led to softer, silky fibres such as ‘Finesse’ and ‘Luxelle’, which reflect light on the pile, creating a sumptuous, silk like effect.
Ideal for a classic country cottage or contemporary town house, our Wool Loop pile carpets are made in a choice of textured or level pile surfaces, as well as striped designs. Loop Pile carpets in durable European and New Zealand wool can stand heavy traffic and don’t show foot marks, but don’t work well with cat’s claws or abrasive training shoes.
“I’ve got a wool carpet right on the entrance to this shop. It’s been there 20 years and never been cleaned, so you can’t tell me that wool carpet can’t look good!”

Why wool? The benefits of wool
The design world is in the midst of a so-called wool renaissance. Across the globe, more and more designers, retailers and shoppers are realising the unique benefits of this wonderful fabric. From its aesthetics to its eco-credentials – it’s nature’s own high-performance fibre.
The ultimate in cosiness
When discussing the benefits of wool, there’s one thing that instantly jumps to mind: cosiness. Good quality wool is soft, warm and invitingly cosy. There’s a reason that sheep are so content with being out in a blustery field all day! Synthetic materials just don’t come close to the tactile benefits of real wool.
On a more scientific note, wool is a natural insulator. This means it absorbs sound, helping to sound-proof your home. It also absorbs heat and releases it slowly – not only will this keep your home nice and warm in the winter, it will also help regulate the warmer temperatures in the summer. It really is a fabric for all seasons!
Wool is also highly absorbent and a natural humidistat, meaning that it can help remove excess moisture from the air. In fact, wool carpets can hold 33% of their own weight in water before they feel wet. This enables a wool carpet to help control the humidity of a room – which is ideal for properties prone to damp or mould.
Health and safety
Have you ever heard that hard floors are the best choice for allergy sufferers? Well, sorry to disappoint – it’s not true. Floors like wood and laminate allow allergens and dust to freely travel in the air, which can actually make symptoms more pronounced.
On the other hand, wool carpets and rugs can actively cleanse the air by removing these unwanted impurities for up to 30 years. Wool can even remove formaldehyde and nasty volatile organic chemicals, like those found in paint, hairspray, glue and nail polish. And did we mention that wool is antibacterial? Not bad for a simple floor covering!
Another unusual feature of wool is its ability to inhibit (and even extinguish) fires. That’s right – a wool carpet could literally save a life. Due to its natural flame-retardant features, wool is self-extinguishing and does not melt like synthetic fibres. It won’t give off any nasty toxic fumes either, which minimises the risk of dangerous smoke inhalation. So all in all, wool carpets are probably the safest and healthiest choice you could make for your home.
