Wool; The Ultimate Renewable Fiber


If you're looking for environmentally responsible flooring; wool is the only authentic naturally sustainable fiber and offers a vast range of benefits over other fiber types.

Wool is the ultimate renewable fiber.

With sheep grazing freely on grass. wool grows continuously before being shorn every 9 - 12 months and returned to their pastures to grow more wool.

Wool is biodegradable.

In soil, wool readily biodegrates to produce essential plant nutrients such as potassium, nitrogen and phosphorous. Even in a landfill, wool pile will decompose leaving no harmful residues. Wool is composed entirely of amino acids, the building blocks of life and at the end of its useful life, pile from wool carpet can be returned to the ground, releasing nutrients as it decomposes, promoting further grass growth.

Wool is energy efficient.

Wool is produced from totally renewable and natural resources - water, sun and grass and requiring far less energy to produce than synthetic fibers. Wool carpet reduces heating and cooling energy requirements by preventing heat loss and heat rise through floors.

Wool has innate stain and soil resistance.

Chemical stain resistance treatments are not necessary. Wool’s unique fiber structure of overlapping 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 the most forgiving and easiest fiber to clean and maintain.

Wool does not attract lint, so vacuum cleaning is easier. When wet cleaning, wool fibers swell and release dirt particles.
