Wool is the most common natural fiber flooring and has been used in both carpets and rugs for decades. Go Green Flooring specializes in and stocks 100% wool carpets, wool & synthetic blend carpets, and 100% wool and synthetic blend area rugs...all at affordable prices! We have one of the largest selections of wool carpets in Boulder County and the surrounding area.
Wool fiber is strong, naturally resistant to stains, naturally resistant to piling, naturally resistant to fire, and has a coating that causes small amounts of water to bead up on its surface. Wool is also a wonderful choice as an insulating floor because the individual fibers of wool tend to catch and retain air. It is composed entirely of amino acids, the building blocks of life. In soil, wool readily biodegrades to produce nitrogen, sulfur, carbon dioxide and water, which are all plant nutrients.
- Naturally stain and soil resistant - Wool carpets clean better, making stain protection unnecessary. The wool fiber’s structure consists of overlapping scales, arranged much like roof shingles. These scales inhibit dirt from adhering to the fiber and help fleck it away. Wool has significantly better soil release than any other fiber
- Naturally crush-resistant - Wool fiber is naturally curly, and it has more crush resistance than any other fiber. Wool carpet fibers recover from crushing better than any other carpet fibers
- Improves air quality - Wool carpet naturally improves the indoor air quality of your home. It stabilizes relative humidity by absorbing or releasing moisture during periods of high or low atmospheric humidity. If well maintained, it absorbs and neutralizes airborne particles and fumes
- Insulator - Wool carpet's natural properties help keep your home cool in summer and warm in winter
- Proven - Wool has been used in carpet for centuries. Its unique natural properties have seen it stand the test of time as the premier flooring fiber.
- Natural Flame Retardant - Wool carpets are naturally flame retardant because of its high protein content. If ignited, wool only burns weakly, limiting the spread of the flame.
