Wool is the traditional carpet fibre and the most luxurious. Its resilience, resistance to soiling, low flammability and being easy to clean make it the most common carpet fibre to use.
Fibre blends; wool can be blended with a percentage of synthetic fibre such as nylon or polypropylene to achieve a combination of the best fibres from each material (80% Wool and 20% Nylon 80% Wool, 10% Nylon and 10% Tuftbond 50% Wool, 40% Polypropylene, 10% Tuftbond) . These carpet blends are suitable for all rooms in your home, just ask Olympic Carpet staff for advice.
