Is wool good for a rug?

Wondering if wool makes a good rug material? You're in the right place! Wool, a natural fibre, is renowned for its durability and comfort, making it an ideal option for rugs. At Carpet Court, our natural wool rugs are designed to bring both style and practicality to your space, proving that wool is not just good—it's exceptional for any rug.

How are wool rugs made?

The wool rugs at Carpet Court are made with the perfect blend of age-old tradition and modern innovation. Through hand-loomed techniques, skilled artisans weave pure wool into exquisite rugs, ensuring each piece stands out with its unique strength and texture.

Our wool blend rugs take this a step further, combining the natural resilience and warmth of wool with other fibres for a mix that's both durable and easy to maintain. Ideal for Australian homes and businesses, these rugs promise to add a touch of elegance, comfort, and longevity to any space, perfectly aligning with the diverse needs and styles across the country.

What are the benefits of wool rugs?

Wool rugs really do tick all the boxes for both comfort and style, making them a popular option Australia-wide. With benefits that stretch from the cosy corners of your living room to the busy floors of an office, here's why they're a top pick for various spaces:

  • Durability: Wool rugs are tough enough to handle the busiest parts of your home without breaking a sweat.
  • Comfort: There’s nothing quite like the softness of wool underfoot, offering a touch of luxury and warmth to any room.
  • Natural Insulation: Wool naturally regulates temperature to keep your space warm in winter and cool in summer.
  • Sound Reduction: Wool rugs are great at softening sounds, perfect for peaceful living spaces or quieter work areas.
  • Low Maintenance: Thanks to wool's natural oils, these rugs resist stains and dirt, making maintenance a breeze.
  • Environmentally Friendly: Wool is a renewable resource, and its production has a lower environmental impact, making wool rugs a greener option.
  • Style Versatility: Available in a range of colours and patterns, wool rugs can fit any design aesthetic, from classic to contemporary.

What’s the difference between a wool rug and a wool carpet?

Deciding between a wool rug and a wool carpet comes down to your needs. Wool rugs offer flexibility and style, perfect for adding warmth and design flair to specific areas without committing to full-room coverage. They can easily be moved and layered over existing floors for added texture.

Wool carpets provide wall-to-wall cosiness, improving room insulation and reducing noise for a more uniform and comfortable living environment. Whether you opt for the statement-making versatility of a rug or the seamless comfort of a carpet, wool ensures durability and warmth in any choice.

Are wool rugs eco-friendly?

Wool rugs are a smart pick for anyone looking to spruce up their space in an eco-friendly way. Wool, straight from our Aussie farms, is as natural as it gets. It’s renewable, biodegradable and one of the most sustainable flooring options out there.

Carpet Court also offers other eco-friendly options like viscose and jute rugs. Viscose rugs bring a touch of luxury with their silky feel, all while being made from natural wood cellulose. Then you’ve got jute rugs, made from plant fibres, adding a rustic charm to any room.

How big of a wool rug do I need?

Getting the rug size right can really tie a room together, whether it's your living room or dining room. Here's a straightforward guide to help you nail it:

For the living room, think about your furniture layout. A good rule of thumb is to pick a rug size that allows all your furniture to sit on the rug comfortably, creating a unified look. If you're after a more subtle feel, a smaller rug under the coffee table will do the trick. Just make sure it’s big enough to connect all the pieces together.

Heading over to the dining room, you'll want a rug that's large enough for the chairs to still be on the rug when they’re pulled out. No one likes a wobbly chair caught on the edge of a rug during dinner! Generally, that means adding about 60cm on all sides of your dining table to get the perfect rug size.

How do I style a wool rug?

Styling a wool rug in your home is all about bringing your personal touch to the space, whether it's a cosy corner or a bustling high-traffic area. Here are some tips to get you started:

  • Pick the Right Area Rug Size: Make sure the rug size matches the area you're decorating. A larger rug can anchor your room's furniture, while a smaller one can define a specific area or add a pop of interest.
  • Consider Your Colour Palette: A neutral colour rug, like a classic grey wool rug, can blend seamlessly with your existing home decor, offering flexibility as your style evolves. If you're after a bit of zest, a multi-colour option, like a tribal rug, can add a vibrant splash to your room.
  • Select the Shape Based on Function: Round rugs are great for creating a focal point and softening spaces with lots of straight lines and angles. They're perfect under round dining tables or in smaller spaces to add dimension.
  • Think About Traffic: Wool rugs are durable, making them ideal for high-traffic areas. Their natural resilience to dirt and stains means they'll stay looking fresh for longer.
  • Play with Styles: Whether you're drawn to the intricate patterns of a Moroccan rug or the laid-back vibes of a boho design, there's a wool rug to match every theme. Don't be afraid to mix textures and patterns to create a unique look.
  • Get Styling Advice: If you're unsure, Carpet Court's experts are always on hand to offer styling advice, helping you select the perfect wool rug to complement your space.

Can I use wool floor rugs in summer?

Wool floor rugs aren't just for the cooler months. They're a fantastic pick for summer, too. Here's why they work year-round:

  • Breathability: Wool's natural fibres allow air to circulate, making it surprisingly cool underfoot. This means a wool rug can actually help keep your living space more comfortable, even when the mercury rises.
  • Versatile Designs: Whether you're after a modern rug to update your space or a runner rug for your hallway, wool's versatility shines through. It fits seamlessly into any décor, from minimalist Scandi to more traditional settings.
  • Colour Options: Thinking of a black rug? It can make a striking statement in a sunlit room, contrasting beautifully against lighter summer decors. Just remember, lighter colours reflect light, making them a cool option for sunny days.
  • Flatweave Rugs: For a lighter option, consider a flatweave rug. They're perfect for summer, offering a less plush but equally stylish option that feels great underfoot and maintains the airy feel of your home.

How long do wool rugs last?

Wool rugs are renowned for their durability and longevity, making them the perfect rug option for any home looking for a blend of style and practicality. Thanks to wool's natural resilience and ability to bounce back, these rugs can withstand the test of time, often lasting for decades with the right care.

Their inherent strength means they resist wear and tear remarkably well, ensuring your investment remains looking as good as new for years to come. Whether placed in a high-traffic area or a quiet corner, a wool rug maintains its integrity and appearance, proving itself to be a timeless addition to your space.

Do wool rugs shed?

Yes, wool rugs, especially those made from pure wool, can shed initially. This shedding is a natural characteristic of pure wool rugs, resulting from the way wool fibres are spun. However, it's not a cause for concern. Over time, with regular vacuuming and proper care, the shedding will decrease significantly.

How do you clean and maintain a wool rug?

Keeping your wool rug looking spick and span, whether it's a plush white wool rug or an elegant ivory wool rug, is easier than you might think. Thanks to wool's natural stain resistance, a little TLC goes a long way. Here's how to keep your rug in top shape:

  • Vacuum Regularly: Give your rug a good vacuum once a week to nab any dirt or dust. This keeps the fibres nice and fresh.
  • Spot Clean Spills: Simply dab the spill gently with a damp cloth. Avoid rubbing, as that can push the spill deeper into the fibres.
  • Use Wool-Safe Cleaners: For those tougher spots, opt for a cleaner that's made of wool. It's gentle yet effective.
  • Rotate Your Rug: To avoid uneven wear, give your rug a spin every few months. This is especially handy for those sunnier spots that might fade over time.
  • Professional Clean: Every once in a while, treat your rug to a professional clean. It's like a spa day for your wool rug, keeping it looking its best.

How do I stop a wool rug from slipping?

To keep your wool rug from taking a slide on hard floors or carpet, a rug underlay is your best bet. It provides a grippy layer that keeps your rug firmly in place, whether it's a lightweight piece or something more substantial. For an extra hold, especially in less busy areas, consider double-sided rug tape.

Remember, a well-placed rug not only enhances your space but also stays put with the right support underneath. Regular vacuuming and occasional rotation will also help maintain its position and keep your rug looking its best.
