A carpet is an important part of any room. When correctly chosen, it can enhance the function and enjoyment of that room. For this reason, many different types of carpet fibres exist, all with varying strong points. It is important to choose a carpet fibre that is best suited for your intended use. Do you need to carpet a busy, high traffic hallway? Or are you looking to spruce up a spare bedroom in the house, where biggest concern is colour fading? Perhaps you are in need of carpet that would best suit a waiting room, where cleanliness is high on the list of priorities. No matter what your situation, Trevors carpets can help you determine the carpet fibre best suited for you and your budget.
Wool has long been a trusted carpet fibre. This natural material comes from Australian and New Zealand sheep’s wool, making this a sustainable fibre choice. The inherent crimp of the fibre helps wool hold its shape for increased durability. The naturally occurring air pockets provide insulation against the cold and against noise, creating a warm soft carpet that creates a quieting effect. Wool is a premium carpet fibre, and provides excellent all-around comfort and wear. Also available blended with synthetic fibres, a wool blend carpet has increased wear compared to pure wool carpets.Read more View products
