As The Campaign for Wool: Wool Week is officially underway we thought we’d take this opportunity to celebrate exactly why wool is just so yarn wonderful.
But first for those who haven’t come across wool week before let’s tell you a little about it…
The Campaign for Wool is a global venture initiated that has been created in order to raise awareness amongst consumers about the unique, natural, renewable and biodegradable benefits offered by wool. His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales is a patron so it even gets the royal thumbs up. Wool Week is their annual event that is now in it’s eighth year which provided the consumers with events, exhibitions and activities designed to educate, inspire and promote the benefits of the wonderful fibre. This years event runs from the 8th - 21st October. For more information on this years event calendar click on the link below.
Why Choose Wonderful Wool?
Wool is a textile fibre that comes from sheep and other animals. Shearing of sheep is essential for their welfare and upkeep which means wool that is grown on sheep which graze freely is 100% natural. Not only this but recyclable and biodegradable which makes it the perfect choice for sustainable, natural flooring. If you are looking for an eco-friendly flooring option you should definitely consider a wool carpet. That’s not all though, wool has even more benefits to offer you.
Strength and Duribility
Wool carpets have been know for hundreds of year for their strength and durability. Wool has a natural crimp which provides you with plenty of opportunity to bounce back, which therefore provides you with great performance over many years with long lasting durability.
Wool is naturally fire resistant and has a very low ignition rate.
You can’t beat having a carpet in your home. It’s great in the winter offering insulation, adding that extra warmth and cosiness.
Due to wool being a natural fibre it means that it contains it’s own natural oils. These oils are resistant to soiling so most of the time you will just have to keep on top of the vacuuming. We do advise that if you do have any spillages that you deal with them straight away with a clean cloth. For more carpet maintenance tips check out or blog.
