Carpet is a great addition to your New Orleans home because it is soft, affordable, and adds a cozy feel to any room. Wool is a popular carpet material due to its insulating and moisture wicking qualities. Wool is made from the hair of sheep and although it is commonly used to make carpet, it’s also a popular material used to make clothes and textiles. Homeowners love it because it is also an eco-friendly flooring option. If you’re looking for a warm and elegant carpet, we encourage you to consider it for your home.
Benefits of Wool Carpet
- Eco-Friendly: Wool is biodegradable and a renewable resource. Unlike synthetic carpet options, wool won’t sit around in landfills for years.
- Durable: Wool is a durable carpet material that will last for many years to come. Due to its moisture wicking qualities, you don’t have to worry about mold growing in your carpet.
- Hides Dirt: Due to its opaque fibers, wool is a good carpet choice for hiding any dirt your family may track in.
- Timeless: Wool tends to be thicker and fluffier than other synthetic carpets. This creates a feeling of coziness and warmth throughout a home that never goes out of style.
While wool has many benefits, it is less affordable than other carpet options due to its high quality. While it is good at hiding dirt, it is also more prone to stains because the material absorbs moisture easily. Liquids like juice or wine can be difficult to remove.
