Why would I buy Wool Carpet?
Wool Carpet has innate stain/soil resistance so that chemical stain resistance treatments are not necessary. Wool’s unique fiber structure of overlapping, hard, microscopic scales (much like roof shingles), make it durable and hard wearing while inhibiting dirt adhering to the fiber and giving significantly better soil release than other fibers. Wool is one of the most forgiving and easiest fibers to clean and maintain. It does not attract lint so vacuuming is easier. In wet cleaning, the fiber swells and releases dirt particles.

- Wool is a natural fiber that synthetics strive to emulate.
- Wool resists and releases soil more easily, is crush resistant, absorbs noise and noxious gases from the air, resists odor, and resists fire more than other fiber choices.

A Brief History of Merino Wool
The history of Merino wool dates back to the 1200’s, when the Moors crossbred Spanish sheep with Berber sheep to produce the first Merino sheep. By the 1600’s wool from Merino sheep was recognized as the world’s finest wool, as it is still today. Merinos of all types were introduced into Australia in the late 1700’s. Through selection and crossbreeding, and with particular attention to the impact of the environment on both animal and fleece, the Australian Merino that we now know evolved.
