Woollen Wool Rugs
The wool rug has a long and venerable tradition. Craftsmen in Iran were hand weaving Persian wool rugs millennia ago and the tradition spread to other part of Asia. The fact that it remains the prime carpet material of choice today is testament to its qualities.
One simple reason for wool’s popularity is that it’s such an attractive material. It’s natural and easy to dye in a range of delightful colours and patterns. It’s hardy, too. Unlike man-made fibres, wool is strongly resistant to compression. This makes for a springy softness, which is ideal for a home with children.
Wool area rugs are very popular. These are flooring items that work to retain warmth in a room or create a focal point. Wool is an excellent insulator of both heat and sound so it works well to create a cosy atmosphere. With some enticing patterns and designs, it acts as a natural magnet for the eyes.

Taking Care of a Wool Rug
Wool rugs require minimal upkeep as they’re so tightly woven. Regular vacuuming and an occasional professional clean is all you need to keep them looking great. Be careful to mop up any spills with absorbant towels immediately and ensure your rug stays dry.
