Getting out of bed on a cold winter morning can require a lot of motivation, but what better way to start your day than sinking your feet into a lovely, springy wooly carpet? As the nights draw in and the temperature drops the benefits of wool are obvious – nice toasty feet and a higher retention of heat in your house. But did you know there are also 4 other main benefits of wool carpets?

Due to the natural crimp in wool fibres, these carpets retain their texture for a much longer time than other fibre types which helps to retain its original appearance and reduce wear and tear. Wool is also naturally stain resistant which is ideal if you have little ones around the house.
- Value for money
Although wool initially requires a slightly higher cost, the longevity of the materials and the heat it adds to your house will actually save you money over time. You will need to spend less time and money on cleaning products and because of wool’s natural stain and wear resistant properties you can keep it around for much longer than other styles.
