Looking for a Wool Rug? Look No Further!

The Wonderful World of Wool Rugs

Welcome to the wonderful world of wool rugs, we’re happy to have you here! Wool rugs’ list of benefits is a long one. If you’re on the fence about buying one of the wool we have on offer and need a little convincing, take a look at three of its most impressive characteristics.

Environmentally Friendly

As we all know, wool comes from sheep. But unlike other animal-derived products such as leather, sheep aren’t harmed in the shearing process. After being shorn, the sheep’s wool will grow back in just 9 to 12 months.

In addition to being renewable, wool is completely biodegradable. Whether wool is disposed of in a landfill or in soil it biodegrades and instead of releasing harmful residues it releases nutrients including nitrogen and potassium.    

Budget Friendly

On top of being environmentally friendly, wool rugs can also be budget friendly. While affordable, wool isn’t the cheapest option for rug material. Although they may cost more to purchase initially, your wallet will thank you in the long run.

This is because wool rugs are efficient. On cold days wool rugs prevent heat loss and on hot days they prevent heat from rising through the floors. Either way your energy bills will be reduced. Plus, a high-quality wool rug will literally last a lifetime. 

Versatile

Lastly, wool rugs are incredibly versatile. You can use them in any room of your home to enhance warmth and homeliness—from your baby’s nursery to your home office. You can even place a wool rug in the bathroom without worry as they’re durable and even boast light water-resistance.   

They’re available in all sorts of sizes, colours, patterns as well as shapes. Whether you’re looking for pink round wool rugs, white square wool rugs or gray rectangular wool rugs, you’ll find what you’re looking for with no problems.      

The As, Bs, and Cs of Caring for Wool Floor Rugs

When you combine the above listed benefits of wool rugs with the fact that they have an expected lifespan that ranges anywhere from 20 to 60 years, it’s easy to understand why they’re ever popular. But before you go ahead and click that “add to cart” button know that owning a wool rug comes with responsibility.

To make sure that your wool rug lasts as long as possible, and looks good while doing so, you need to care for it properly.   

How to Clean a Wool Rug?

To properly care for a wool rug, you need to know how to clean it properly. Part of the reason why wool is such a popular rug material is because the lanolin inside wool is naturally capable of repelling stains and dust mites. But that doesn’t mean it’s without its own list of cleaning requirements.

Here’s what you need to know about cleaning wool floor rugs:

  • Sweep it at least twice a week and vacuum it once a month to keep shedding at bay. But more on that soon!
  • Give it a light scrub once a month using a sponge and tablespoon or two of gentle detergent mixed with a bucket of clean cold water. Remember to keep an extra bucket handy to rinse the sponge clean as you go! After cleaning, hang it up to air dry on your washing line.  
  • If you have a full wool carpet, we recommend a professional carpet cleaner for the best results. 

How to Maintain a Wool Rug?

Naturally, you need to keep your wool rug clean to make sure it remains in optimal condition, but you also need to maintain it. The most important maintenance requirement to meet is regular rotation. We recommend rotating your rug once a year, or more often if it is located in a high-traffic area, helping to minimize wear and tear.

In addition to this, wool rugs require an annual shake out. The best way to go about this is to hang your rug up and hit it using a proper rug beater to get rid of any dirt & dust build-up.

How to Stop a Wool Rug from Shedding?

Due to its unique make-up, wool floor rugs and shedding go hand in hand. The first thing you need to understand is that shedding is perfectly normal, in fact, it’s natural. But there’s no denying that it can be an annoyance.

The second thing you need to understand is that shedding typically stops within three to four months of owning a new rug. The third thing you need to understand is that shedding is perfectly manageable.

Now that that’s all out of the way let’s dive into the different ways to stop a wool rug from shedding:

  • Invest in padding: Place carpet padding underneath the rug to keep the rug’s fibers from dirt, moisture and general wear & tear.
  • Keep it clean: This is especially important if your wool rug is in an area that sees plenty of foot traffic or if you own furry friends. Be sure to brush your rug every week to dislodge any pet hair.
  • Try giving it a trim: If you’re bothered by the occasional appearance of loose tufts or fuzzy fibers, grab a pair of sharp scissors and trim away!
