Natural wool rugs weaves style and comfort with easy care

Range of Wool Rugs

Are wool area rugs the best?

For the finest quality designer rugs and carpets in Australia, browse our extensive range of stylish and durable pure wool rugs. As area rugs, pure wool rugs combine longevity and insulation while adding sophisticated style to all types of interior spaces. From bedrooms, to living spaces, dining areas to hallways, our wide range of quality wool rugs provide years of luxurious comfort and warmth underfoot. As a natural fibre, our stylish wool rugs are a popular choice as a foundational layer to enhance all types of interior spaces.

Benefits of owning a wool rug

A pure wool rug offers a host of practical and aesthetic benefits, especially when it comes to area rugs. Enjoy many years of comfort and style from high quality pure wool rugs, versatile enhancements in living rooms, bedrooms, and under dining tables. Besides your home looking more beautiful, you can also feel-good knowing wool rugs are made from a renewable environmentally friendly natural source.

1. Long lifespan:

Naturally eco-friendly pure wool fibres are a renewable resource with renowned longevity. This makes them an ideal long-term option for environmentally-conscious families who are looking for resilience as well as an eco-friendly option. Natural fibres are more durable compared to shorter lifespan synthetic or synthetic blend options like viscose rugs, jute rugs or synthetic nylon shag rugs.

2. Beautiful texture:

A flat weave wool rug is luxuriously thick and comfortable underfoot. With natural insulating properties, the density of wool provides the best warmth and insulation out of all types of area rugs.

In humid climates, which is often the case for Australia, pure wool rugs are a healthy choice due to wool’s natural antibacterial and antimicrobial properties. Another benefit is that of lanolin, found in sheepskin wool. Lanolin repels moisture and therefore restricts the growth of unhealthy mildew and mould.

3. Stain resistance:

The same waxy lanolin coating found in sheep’s wool which repels moisture, mildew and mould is also what gives wool fibre a high level of soil and stain resistance. This makes pure wool rugs an ideal choice for placement under dining chairs or in a playroom or for any high traffic space in an active family’s home.

4. Great for high traffic area

Because wool rugs combine durability, softness and comfort, wool rugs are often at the top of the wishlist for high traffic floor areas. For homes, high traffic areas include entrance halls, hallways, kids’ bedrooms, living rooms and playrooms. Your kitchen may also be a high traffic area if you love to cook and entertain. Whatever your high traffic area, we have a gorgeous wool rug for you, whether a runner rug for hallways or a larger sized rug to extend under sofas in your living room.

5. Easy to maintain and clean

Besides being highly durable and resilient, wool rugs are also easy to maintain and clean. Because of lanolin in wool, wool is naturally water and stain resistant. To ensure your wool rug doesn’t wear thin, place a correctly sized rug pad under your wool rug (also available from Carpet Court). This will also make your wool rug even softer underfoot. To ensure equal wear, especially in high traffic areas, it’s good to rotate your rug often (every few months). Vacuuming regularly is also essential to lift loose dirt and debris. To clean any spills or mishaps, start by reading the manufacturer’s care guide and always avoid using harsh chemicals. For a full cleaning, which can also further maintain your wool rug’s beauty, use a professional carpet cleaner who doesn’t’ use shampoos or cleaners with a spirit base. If in doubt, feel free to make contact with our expert team with any carpet or rug related questions.

6. Range of designs, colours and sizes available

While all the practical benefits make wool rugs extremely appealing, it is the aesthetic properties many homemakers find hard to resist. Our wool rugs can make any interior space pop! But pure wool rugs aren't just a treat for the eyes, they’re also feast for your feet (and so stylish they’re sometimes used as wall art!).

With so much choice it may be hard to decide. Our wool rug colours include white and neutral tones to darker charcoal rugs and shades of grey rugs. For a brighter and bolder colour palette, our multi-coloured Moroccan or tribal rug designs range from taupe to tones of teal.

For the understatement piece, our scandi styles in muted tones in rectangle, runner and round rug designs, will say so much without saying anything at all.

Styling your new wool rug

Finding the best style for your space

Your choice of a wool rug will depend on your personal taste. From chunky to flat weave rugs, browse our designs to find the best style for your space. Choose from a range of styles including new, modern, shag and traditional, from muted and natural tones to richer colours and bold designs. Whatever you choose, when it comes to floor rugs, a general rule is the bigger the better to visually maximise your interior space.

Carpet Court’s wide range of carpet colours and patterns make it easy to style your new wool rug.

How a wool rug is a good investment

While some woollen rugs are pricier than other non-wool alternatives, because wool lasts for longer (and can look like new for longer thanks to its durability and easy care), a pure wool rug is an investment. As a natural fibre carpet that combines luxury and longevity, here are some additional reasons to consider a wool rug for the long run.

  • When it comes to insulating your home, wool rugs are high performing modern rugs for homes across Australia. Whether you live in Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra, Adelaide or Hobart, a pure wool area rug helps to retain warmth within the home. During the cold winter months wool rugs can reduce home heating costs.
  • In homes with young families, pure wool rugs are the thickest, softest and warmest option for children playing on the floor, providing protection for infants and comfort for children of all ages.
  • Over the years the natural durability of sheepskin wool means you won't need to replace your wool rugs as often as you might other types of rugs such as jute rugs or outdoor rugs.
  • Wool rugs are versatile and adapt to their environment. Put your pure wool rug in the family room with bean bags and funky ottomans and it will look just as perfect as it does in an elegant dining room with your high quality buffet and dining table.

FAQs

What are wool rugs made from?

Wool rugs can be made with 100% pure wool sheepskin fibres but they can also be a blend of wool and synthetic fibres. Some wool rugs may be blended with synthetic fibres such as solution dyed nylon, but also with other natural fibres such as cotton. Even jute rugs have buddied up with wool to create a multi rug with interest!

What is the difference between wool rugs and synthetic rugs?

Polyester, nylon and polypropylene rugs are constructed from man-made synthetic fibres which are not natural products. These types of rugs are specially treated during the manufacturing process to offer excellent stain, soil and fade resistance.

Outdoor rugs are made from synthetic fibres to ensure they are highly resilient and resistant to UV rays, dirt and moisture. Synthetic fibre rugs such as solution dyed nylon offer great fade resistance and easy cleaning so they can be a great choice for family homes with floor to ceiling glass.

But if you are selecting one of our 100% pure wool rugs it is a wholly natural product crafted from sheep’s wool with a natural ability to repel spills, stains and moisture and with excellent fire retardation properties.

Pure wool rugs offer the most insulation and excellent tensile strength, which is why many people love them underfoot.

Are wool rugs soft?

Supremely luxurious, sublimely decadent, seriously soft. So that’s a yes! Wool rugs are naturally soft because they’re made from sheep’s wool. Wool rugs are a welcoming inclusion to your living spaces and a comforting addition in bedrooms. If a soft start to a cold morning is top of your winter wishlist, then sinking bare toes fresh from a warm mattress into a luxurious wool rug is a great way to start an icy day.

How long would a wool rug last?

Because Australian and New Zealand sheep are exposed to extreme weather conditions, wool rugs--as a natural fibre--are inherently resilient and durable. Sheep’s wool has natural stain, soil, moisture and crush resistance. If longevity is a priority when buying a rug, a pure wool area rug is the natural choice.

How do I maintain and clean my wool rug?

With a high quality underlay, your pure wool rug will give you many years of high performing comfort.

Follow these important steps to care for your beautiful wool area rug:

  1. Always refer to the manufacturer's care and maintenance guide before cleaning your wool rug.
  2. Vacuum your pure wool area rug regularly to prevent dirt and debris embedding deep into the fibres.
  3. Expect a natural amount of ‘shedding’ as your new wool rug settles in. Simply vacuum up the loose wool fibres.
  4. When a spill occurs, absorb excess fluid promptly with paper towels or a clean, absorbent cloth.
  5. For cleaning spills or stains, it is important not to use commercial cleaning products or methods without consulting the manufacturer's care and maintenance directions.
