Ever wonder which way to go when selecting your wall to wall carpeting or area rug? In this article, we’ll take a look at the features and benefits of natural wool.
(To read the entire article from Wools of New Zealand, click here.)
NATURAL FILTER-traps unwanted particles from the air, keeping them away from people with respiratory problems.
HUMIDITY MODERATING-absorbs up to 1/3 its own weight without feeling damp. Releases back into the atmosphere when humidity drops.
TEMPERATURE MODERATING-a natural insulator keeps warm in the winter and cool in the summertime.
LOW VOC EMISSION-does not give off harmful gasses, which can cause eye, nose, throat irritation, and even aggravate allergies and asthma.
SLIP RESISTANT-natural friction makes it safe to stand and walk on for people of all ages.
CUSHIONING FOR FALLS-naturally springy in nature. Keeps its shape and wears well.
FIRE SAFETY-fire resistant. Will form an insulating char layer, which inhibits fire.
STATIC RESISTANT-the natural moisture in wool prevents the build up of static
HEALTHY POSTURE-promotes good posture and gate due to the natural springiness.
SAFE FOR BABY-traps bacteria and allergens, keeping them away from the play area where baby is breathing. Its springy nature protects baby from injury when falling.
SAFE FOR SMALL PETS-does not promote the growth of bacterial, dust mites and does not give off harmful emissions.
NATURAL AIR FILTER-non-allergenic and does not provide nutrients for bacteria or dust mites, and does not promote the growth of molds.
NON-IRRITATING-fibers are too long and thick to be inhaled. Will not irritate the respiratory system.
- EASY TO CARE FOR
EASY CARE-easy care with vacuuming and occasional professional cleaning. Naturally elastic so it stands up to everyday wear and tear and resists crushing.
