The oldest floor covering fiber known to man is the renewable fleece of the sheep. Wool has a scaly surface texture that adds flexibility to the fiber which imparts strength and resistance to abrasion during wear and the textured surface traps air, acting as an insulator in cool to hot temperatures.
Wool has a natural spiral growth pattern that gives wool a permanent crimp that will provide a life-time of resilience to traffic, furniture weight, stretching and abrasion. Wool's high nitrogen content makes wool naturally difficult to ignite and when burning, wool extinguishes itself. Wool is used on most all luxury ocean liners, Coast Guard ships, and commercial aircraft and in the finest casinos throughout the world because of its excellent fire retardant capabilities and performance under extreme traffic conditions.
Equally important, wool is totally natural, renewable and biodegradable. The earth's most friendly carpet fiber.
