Wool is biodegradable in soil, producing nitrogen, sulphur, carbon dioxide and water, all elements that improve soil fertility. But are there any negatives?
We want you to have all the facts, so what might stop you from choosing wool? Initial Cost
Whilst a natural material, wool carpets do cost more to produce. However, given that they last longer, the cost will even out over time.Absorbency
Whilst wool carpet’s absorbency is a good trait for removing humidity from the air, it’s not so great if there is regular exposure to water. In places such as in or near a bathroom, larger volumes of water can saturate wool fibres and cause discolouration.Care when cleaning
Cleaning products need to have a pH less than 9.5, or they will negatively affect wool carpets. Strong chemicals can cause carpets to lose their colour and possibly begin to dissolve. Sensitive to light
Extended exposure to bright sunlight can cause the colours in the fibres of wool carpets to fade, spoiling the appearance of the carpet. So wool carpets should not be laid in areas that have constant sunlight.Don’t be sheepish about getting samples
