Wool Area Rugs Have Many Benefits Over the Latter

Lots of people are entirely unaware of the many great benefits there are to owning a wool area rug versus a synthetic area rug. One of the biggest selling points about wool is that it is an entirely all-natural material that is shorn from sheep each year and is naturally reoccurring. So you are not going to be negatively impacting the environment by purchasing wool mediums. Another positive is that wool is a very strong and durable material, so you can rest assured that your area rug will stand the test of time for years to come, maintaining its value and good looks.

Wool versus Synthetics

Synthetics materials are not all that bad. However there are some drawbacks to them. For example, synthetic silks tend to not be as durable as wool and some people may have allergies to them. Another point to make is that wool, unlike synthetics, does not have to be manufactured in a plant. Rather it comes from wool farms where sheep are raised for one purpose, to sheer their lush and thick, naturally growing wool and use it as a medium for many different things. Unlike the many synthetics that may have industrial grade curing agents in them or dyes, wool is as close to nature as you can get with an area rug medium.

Wool shag versus Silk and Rayon Shag

When it comes to shag carpeting, wool is the king. In fact, most shag carpets of the past were made from wool exclusively. It has not been until recent years that synthetics started to really dominate the shag rug business. Similarly, the claims are that wool rugs shed more. However, wool, unlike synthetics, is more versatile, has more options when it comes to the style of the shag and the soft piles and the weaving patterns. And, wool is not going to deteriorate as quickly, making it the ideal alternative to a synthetic shag area rug.

Benefits of Wool

There are many benefits to owning a wool rug. For one, they are naturally hypoallergenic, so you don't have to worry about allergies. Wool will also naturally clean and purify the air in your home, which is another added benefit. And finally, wool will not promote the growth nor harbor dust mites and or bacteria. So if you are looking for a way to enjoy an all-natural and environmentally-friendly area rug that offers you the best value hands down for your investment, then you really should look to wool.

What is the best type of Wool?

Generally wool can come from any place in the world that has sheep. However, premium area rug importers tend to favor New Zealand wool because it has a softer, thicker nature. There are only minute differences between different types of wool from around the world and you will notice a decent price gap between imported wools and domestic wools. Keep in mind that wool does not necessarily have to be imported just to be of higher quality. However, generally you will find that the imported wools are spun thicker and have a more supple texture to them.
