Amaze your friends with these FUN FACTS about wool. (and yes we are wool nerds)
  1. Lamb’s Wool is the name of a drink made from Apples, Sugar, Nutmeg & Beer and is 'enjoyed' in the apple producing counties of SW England on 12th Night (January 17 - which seems more like the 17th night to me but who am I to question such things) to ensure a good apple harvest. It also ensures a lot of good beer will be ruined.
  2. The world record for shearing a sheep is held by an Australian, Hilton Barrett, who completely sheared an entire sheep in 39.31 seconds. This tidbit of information will make you the hit of any cocktail party.
  3. A product may be called wool if it uses a mixture of hair from any of the following sources: Alpaca, Llama, Camel, Cashmere, Mohair, Vicuna, Guanaco, that's right...Guanaco, Beaver, Yak, Otter and?.....Oh yeah, Sheep
  4. Alpaca wool comes in 22 natural colors, the most of any wool producing animal.
  5. "Thou shalt not wear a garment of diverse sorts, as of woolen and linen" Deuteronomy 22:11. It is written...No blends! Do you suppose that also applies to carpets of the 80/20 Wool/Nylon blend used in so many casinos? That's probably why Las Vegas is called Sin City.
  6. The fleece of sheep has been used for clothing since the Stone Age.
EVERYONE Can Use a Rug or Some New Carpet
With all the LVP, SCP, ABC’s and 123’s out there the hard surface world can be very confusing to a consumer. Nothing goes better with the organic and natural grain of wood (real or fake) than the beauty and natural heather found in each and every wool carpet, how about some interesting characteristics that make carpet a viable option compared to hard-surface flooring. They are....
Carpet is SOFT: One of the most compelling reasons to purchase carpet is its elegant softness and comfort underfoot. It's just nicer to walk on soft carpets instead of unforgiving hard surface.
Carpet is BEAUTIFUL: The floor has often been called the fifth wall. It's no longer something to just cover, it's another surface to decorate. And carpet, being a textile with its myriad colors, textures, and patterns, offers a beautiful alternative, or companion, to hard surface floors.
Carpet is QUIET: Noise Reduction Coefficient. How is that for a boring term? It's a figure reflecting the noise absorption properties of a given material. Yikes! That's still really boring. Bottom line is noise bounces off hard surfaces making those rooms loud and echo-y and sound is absorbed in carpet making those rooms significantly quieter.
Carpet is WARM: Climb out of bed on a winter morning. If the floor is hard surface, it's cold but if the floor is carpeted, it's not. And it's even better if its wool carpet; it's 50% more effective as an insulator than synthetics. Carpet is a wall-to-wall layer of insulation. Heat can't escape easily, reducing your bills while keeping your home warm and cozy.
Carpet is SAFE: Hard surface floors are smooth and slippery making it a lot easier to fall. And if you fall, they offer no cushion when you land. Carpet is just the opposite. Offering far better traction, slip and fall accidents are far less likely to occur (a major consideration on stairways) and if falls occur, carpets softness will limit the potential damage.
Carpet is HEALTHY: Dust mites, allergens, pollen, and pollutants float freely in uncarpeted rooms, but they are actually drawn to wool carpets and held in place until they can be harmlessly vacuumed away.
Carpet is COST-EFFECTIVE: Even some of the most expensive carpets look like a value compared to hard surface floors. Plus, ongoing maintenance can be quite expensive with some hard surface floors. Easy to install and you'll never have to sand or re-seal carpet. Nor should you by-the-way.
Finally , it is possible to soften any existing hard surface floor by adding an area rug. And just that simple addition will make a room quieter, warmer, safer, and healthier. Whether it's a totally custom masterpiece or a simple bound broadloom rug, we can help because, as we said earlier, it's what we make.
