All About Wool Rugs
In the hierarchy of rugs, wool rugs are the original form and have been around for more than a thousand years. While New Zealand wool is considered to be the finest in quality, there are other wool types that you can consider.
For instance, while wool comes mainly from sheep, these days, wool rugs for sale are crafted using a combination of synthetic fibres such as nylon, polyester, and polypropylene. These synthetic blends are not only durable and great to look at but are also inexpensive. Wool rugs are the go-to choice if you are looking to create an elegant and luxurious look.
All of the wool rugs featured on our site have been hand-picked because of their exquisite design and eco-friendly preparation, from the ethically and professionally supervised wool shearing to the washing of the wool so that the lanolin is not lost.
Now, what is lanolin, you ask? It is the natural oil that’s excreted by the sheep’s skin and absorbed into the wool. This oil helps to nourish and protect sheep’s wool from shedding and is also used in many pharmaceutical products and cosmetics for irritated skin.
Wool Rug Styles
Wool rugs can feel at home in just about any interior setting. Whether you pick a contemporary or vintage design, a wool rug can easily elevate a living space, adding a touch of class and sophistication that brings a room alive. We offer a plethora of wool rug styles to satisfy every taste.
Hand-Knotted Wool Rugs
As the name implies, hand-knotted or ‘Oriental’ wool rugs are weaved by experienced artisans who use ancient techniques to create exquisite designs with patience and precision. Expect to see a lot of gradient and colour combinations in hand-knotted wool rugs, which makes it easier for you to find one that suits your taste.
What sets hand-knotted wool rugs apart is that they can withstand heavy foot traffic. Considered as Heirloom Quality, and can last a lifetime if cared for properly.
Hand-Tufted Wool Rugs
This is the art of weaving coloured wool systematically into a background canvas pattern. This connect-the-dots approach allows artisans to create rugs that feature intricate and complicated designs that are beautiful to look at.
Rather than using a pile for structure, flatweave rugs boast of a thin build that’s made possible through a series of woven width and length threads. The result: an exquisitely designed rug that gives off a classy vibe. Despite the lack of a pile, flatweave rugs can be designed to be reversible and stronger.
These rugs feature a nubby or medium base along with long details that give them their signature plush look. The cut-pile rug is available in a variety of colours and can be found in both short and long-hair details. The versatile design of cut-pile rugs allows them to add a unique touch to any living space.
Cleaning Wool Rugs
Wool is excellent when it comes to hiding dirt, which makes it a great choice as a material for rugs. The problem arises when you wait too long (aka, until the rug looks dirty) before cleaning it yourself or calling in the professionals.
Remember, we said how great wool was in hiding dirt? Well, if you’ve waited for the wool rug to look dirty, it could have an unbelievable amount of abrasive dirt, which can damage the fibres of the wool rug.
As more dirt penetrates the fibre, it results in a visible loss of vibrancy and colour, and what’s worse is that the damage could be impossible to reverse. Depending on the amount of foot traffic it gets and the quality of the wool, it is recommended to give it a thorough wash every one to three years.
