All About Wool Rugs

Wool area rugs, woven from one of the most commonly used natural fibers in carpeting, boast a rich heritage. Crafted by nomadic herders in ancient China and indigenous tribes in the Americas, their tradition eventually reached Europe, where distinct styles emerged.

In particular, regions like France and England established guilds dedicated to wool rug craftsmanship. These rugs serve as a testament to both the cultural importance and the artistry of their makers, with a history that spans centuries and continents.

The Benefits of Wool Area Rugs

Wool is extremely durable, with a texture that lets it withstand foot traffic and unwanted marks. Furthermore, the fiber’s strength helps preserve a rug’s appearance for longer.

Wool is also filled with natural oils and moisture, making it a flame-resistant material. Both elements are able to extinguish flames and prevent them from spreading to parts of the rug. Finally, the thick and fibrous nature of wool deadens loud noises, including echoes and footfalls.

How to Choose the Perfect Wool Rug for Your Space

When purchasing wool area rugs, several important factors should be taken into account:

  • Your lifestyle - Consider the level of activity in the area where the rug will be placed. High-traffic areas, especially those with children, pets, or frequent visitors, may require wool rugs with thicker piles and more knots to withstand wear and tear.
  • Your preferred color and style - Ensure the rug complements your space's existing color scheme. You can choose a rug that either complements or provides a striking contrast to your room's color palette. Additionally, consider room size, lighting, patterns, and textures.
  • Durability - Prioritize the quality and durability of the rug. High-quality wool rugs feature longer and thicker fibers. Additionally, check the rug's density and whether it incorporates stain-resistant materials for added durability.

Caring for Your Wool Rug

To keep your wool area rug in pristine condition, weekly vacuuming is a must. This prevents dust accumulation and maintains its fresh appearance. For spill and stain mishaps, use a wool-specific detergent with warm water for gentle spot-cleaning.

Place a rug pad underneath for slip resistance, cushioning, and even wear. We also recommend periodically rotating the rug to prevent uneven foot traffic wear. When professional cleaning is required, entrust it to experts for a thorough restoration, ensuring your wool rug looks and feels like new.
