What we Love about Wool Carpets

Wool is a natural product. It is incredibly durable and strong; it is a product that lasts. 

Wool is a non-allergenic fiber; it does not promote the growth of bacteria or dust mites, or give off harmful emissions.

Wool Carpets are great for your home because in the hot months the wool absorbs moisture and in the cold winter months the wood carpet releases moisture. 

Our team agrees with Karastan’s views on wool.  These are our favorite features:
1-    Easy to clean
2-    Strong and Durable
3-    Crush Resistant
4-    Inherently Fire Safe
5-    Comfortable

A2. I recently priced out a rug of Karastan’s Berwick Tweed that I really liked for my living room.

A1.  Wool is a sustainable and renewable resource. It is great carpet in your home because in the hot months the wool absorbs moisture and in the cold winter months the wood carpet releases moisture.
