Why do we love wool carpets?

Buying carpet is something you might only do a handful of times in your lifetime. Selecting the wrong type of carpet can be a very expensive mistake. Wool carpet has many excellent qualities which is why we love it so much. It has great insulating properties, keeping your home cool in summer and warm in winter. Wool is naturally resistant to staining and soiling due to its strong, hard wearing fibres making it an ideal choice for the modern family. It is also naturally flame retardant. Wool carpets are available in every colour imaginable and countless textures to create your dream interior.

When we first moved to Eltham 30 years ago, we had our carpet laid by Slocum Floorcoverings. Its only now that the carpet is ready to replaced, so we didn't hesitate to return to Slocums. The service is still great and they still have an amazing range of wool carpets to choose from. Margaret - Eltham North

What are the benefits of wool carpet?

There are many excellent benefits of choosing wool carpet. Wool has great insulation properties, keeping your home cooler in summer and warmer in winter. The production of wool carpet is sustainable and renewable. Not only is wool naturally fire resistant, it also has naturally occurring stain resistance qualities. If cared for correctly, wool carpet is extremely long lasting. You will be sick of your carpet before it is worn out. A common myth is that wool carpet is not suitable for asthmatics. Wool is non allergenic and will not promote the growth of bacteria or dust mites.

Do I need to add a stain protection to wool carpet?

No, wool carpet is naturally stain resistant. The protective waxy coating on wool fibres makes wool carpet resistant to staining and it also picks up less dust as wool is naturally anti-static.
