Area Rug Expert in Sedona Explains Why Wool Rugs are Special


Hi there! It’s Ruthie with Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care coming from Prescott, AZ.

For the start of the week, I thought I’d explain something you may not realize. It is all to do with wool rugs, and why they are much better than other fabrics, you can find in your area rugs.

Here you can learn a little more about this natural rug material.


What Makes Wool Rugs Special?

As a manufacturing product, wool is an excellent absorbent. It makes the use of dazzling and vibrant colors. Since wool dyes so well, it allows for a large variety of colors, giving the manufacturer a large variety of colors they can choose from.

For someone who is a wool goods customer, wool is naturally very absorbent and moisture resistant. For this reason, the thread is inherently tricky to burn.

Wool does not burn quickly and easily, and it will stop if you remove the fire source. There are several explanations for their using wool carpets on planes; add to this, wool is the best insulating material you can find.


Wools Natural Magic

I think wool’s biggest attraction is that it has a greater resistance to dirt and pulls better than other fibers. Wool can stretch as much as fifty per cent of its original length and bounces back to its original form. Wool can withstand back bending 20,000 times without breaking down. Although cotton is limited to can only do this 3,000 times, silk is limited to only can only do this 2,000 times.

A well-cared-for wool area rug that is vacuumed regularly and has routine cleanings every 1-3 years will outperform all other styles of fibers. Wool preserves its appealing appearance for a more extended period than other fabrics, quickly becoming shapeless and unsightly in traffic paths.

We specialize in properly cleaning and treating all area rugs here at Arizona Oriental, regardless of their fiber. Wool responds to cleaning very well, which means our customers will enjoy their incredible wool rugs for many years to come!
