I've been doing a little research on wool carpeting...it's so soft, so luxe, so GREEN! It can be pricey but it's hard to ruin...it's an investment. Sure there are nylon facsimiles but real wool will make your other samples look and feel baaaaaaad. Bad pun, sorry.
The only drawbacks apparently are that Dyson vacuums are NOT reccomended...they cause fuzzing. The suction and wheels are too intense...oh and it can create a little static in dry climates. But, hey, if your bare feet are in heaven , who cares about your hair-do, right? I guess you can only answer this for yourself. BAAAAAAAAAAd hair day? Again, sorry.
This shot from Woolshire, shows the more traditional side of wool carpeting, but I have to grin when I see the bedding they chose to spotlight here. I spec'd this about 5 years ago to go in a really traditional bedroom. I still kind of like the teal and brown combo. I used a suede Ralph Lauren paint in the same teal for the bottom of the wainscoting, and put a more gloden hue on the top...dark brown trim, a wrought iorn head board...I'll see if If can dig up a pic...
ahhhh New Zealand.
Love these from Modern Rugs...100% wool darling! They even have sales!
Futuristic? We think the kids are doing some wacky texting these days...perhaps these are an indication of the future heiroglyphics we'll find on our phone screens...It's an abbrivated novel actually, the climax is shocking, no?
When wool carpet is installed in a home, it works
to improve air quality by absorbing common contaminants, such as formaldehyde (a
common pollutant emitted by building materials), nitrogen dioxide and sulfur
dioxide, by binding the gases irreversibly in its structure. It also creates a
more balanced environment by absorbing vapor from the air in humid conditions
and then releasing it when the atmosphere becomes dry.Wow! I thought it was just renewable/sustainable and natural. Mint jelly washes out in a snap too!
