Wool is a very good insulator so will help to reduce your energy bill. It is a natural product and has the ability to biodegrade in a short period of time compared to synthetic materials .
Wool carpets are dirt and soil resistant. Its natural oils, and structure keep dust and dirt from penetrating into the carpet. The soil and dirt will stay on the surface for easier clean up. Regular vacuuming will keep your wool carpet clean and beautiful. Use a vacuum cleaner with an adjustable beater bar.
