About Wool

Wool is the ultimate in sustainable fibre! It is the fibre of choice for many of our carpeting applications because of its very high performance and ecological benefits. Wool is:

  • A renewable resource
  • Manufactured efficiently - new technology allows control and management of environmental considerations
  • 100% biodegradable - in its pure form decomposes without causing harm to the earth
  • Long-lasting - one of the most durable carpet fibres; retains its good appearance for many years resulting in less frequent replacement and waste
