Love wool? Our reasons for loving wool carpet!

Wednesday 14 August 2019

At Red Carpets, we love a wool carpet.  Here are some of the reasons why:

  • Wool is durable and extremely resilient.  Wool fibres are naturally superior to synthetic fibres which means they will last longer.
  • Wool carpets are naturally flame resistant – it smoulders and extinguishes itself instead of burning.  Due to the self-extinguishing nature of wool, it is the fibre of choice for casinos and airlines!
  • Shearing is essential for the welfare of sheep and wool grown on sheep which graze freely is 100% natural, plus it's easily recyclable and biodegradable, making wool the ultimate sustainable choice for flooring.
  • Colours tend to look richer and more vibrant on wool.
  • Wool carpets are cheaper in the long run.  Although they are initially more expensive, wool carpets are long lasting, so are often seen as a good investment.
  • Amazingly, wool carpets are cooler in summer and warmer in winter.

If you are looking for a new carpet this summer, you don’t need to look any further than Red Carpets Leicester.  We have a huge range of both wool and synthetic carpets and a vast selection of remnants at bargain prices in our showrooms, so come and see us soon in South Wigston or Anstey.
