Why Buy a Wool Carpet?
For a top quality carpet, it doesn't come better than wool. Wool is an incredible material. Natural, durable and soft, a wool carpet has so many benefits for the modern home.
At Penthouse Carpets we’re passionate about selecting the best quality wool from trusted British and New Zealand farmers. This wool is worked by UK spinners and then created into the carpets that make your home a more beautiful and comfortable place. And because wool dyes well, we offer you a range of rich colours to suit the style of your home.
The natural springiness of wool helps keep your wool carpets resilient over time and extends their good looks. To offer you the most durable carpets we blend wool with a small amount of manmade fibres. Your wool carpet will help prevent slips and provides a softer landing if anyone takes a tumble; perfect for homes with small children.
You Can’t Get Better Than Wool
The rich soft feeling of walking on a quality wool carpet is unmatched. But this comfort doesn’t stop with the luxurious softness you’ll enjoy as you relax at home. Natural wool is renowned for heat insulation, keeping in heat and making your home more cosy. A wool carpet can also help insulate against excessive heat and keep rooms cooler in the summer. The unique characteristics of wool also help control humidity in the environment making your home a more comfortable place to live all year round.
The density and resilience of a wool carpet works hard at providing excellent sound insulation – ideal for large households struggling to keep the noise down and for anyone living in a flat. Wool carpets are also naturally fire resistant, thanks to the high amount of protein in wool and the ability of wool to absorb moisture from the environment.
With proper care, it’s easy to keep your wool carpet looking good. The construction of the wool fibre means your wool carpet is naturally water repellent. Small spills and splashes will do little to affect your carpet if dabbed up quickly. The fibres in wool help repel dirt; keeping the soil particles on the top of the carpet pile so they can easily be vacuumed away. When it’s time for a deeper clean, you can be confident your wool carpet will respond beautifully to a professional clean.
Coming from a sustainable source, wool carpets impact the environmental less than fully synthetic carpets. Their exceptional durability means they outlast many other natural floor coverings, reducing landfill impact. And buying a British–made carpet means fewer carbon emissions in getting your carpet from our factory to your home.
