We need to replace our carpets. Is pure wool worth the price?

“Wool gives a plush feeling underfoot if chosen in a cut pile, and can provide a nice textured option if you select a loop pile,” says Darren Palmer, ambassador for Carpet Court. “It’s a natural fibre that is resistant to moisture and mould, so it wears well and is long lasting. Overall it’s a wonderful choice, but consider your room and circumstances. Wool is less stain-resistant than other options and, in areas with lots of sun exposure, a solution-dyed nylon carpet might be better as wool is prone to fading.”
