Wool carpeting is a great choice if you want an eco-friendly or allergy-friendly flooring option. It’s also comfortable underfoot and is a great insulator (helping keep things cool in the summer and warm in the winter).

The Benefits of Wool Carpet Flooring
There are many benefits associated with wool carpeting that make it a highly sought-after flooring material for the home. To start, it is allergen-friendly. Wool has absorbent fibers that trap dust and allergens and prevent them from circulating in the air. It is also soil and stain resistant and it doesn’t produce any vapors that might irritate respiratory conditions. Wool carpet is a versatile material that can fit in with almost any home decor style — from highly formal to relaxed and natural. The fibers are quite resilient, helping the carpet avoid looking “crushed” over time. It can also be mixed with other fibers to adjust the performance characteristics of the carpet to better suit different environments.
The Correct Way to Maintain Wool Carpeting
To maintain wool carpets vacuum them at least once per week. This helps to remove any dirt and allergens that are trapped within the fibers of the carpet and your carpet pad. To prevent the carpet fibers from becoming frizzy, make sure to adjust the vacuum so that the beater brush is turned off (or raised as high as possible) and use suction only. When cleaning up spills use a carpet cleaner safe for wool or wool blends. To keep them in top condition, it’s also recommended that you have your wool carpets professionally cleaned every couple of years.
