Custom wool rugs complement just about any home out there, and they are great for homes of all shapes and sizes. You might be thinking about looking into custom-sized wool rugs for your Chaska home, and we can think of several excellent reasons you should purchase one (or more!).

Wool rugs are durable.

Wool is an incredibly strong fiber. When tested, it takes more than 10,000 bends to break a wool fiber. This is great news for those with kids and/or pets or for those who get a lot of guests in and out of their homes. Wool rugs work well in high traffic areas, like your foyer and living room, and they work just as well in bedrooms too.

Wool takes dye very well and is quite vibrant.

Wool is easily dyed and holds the color quite well, which means they are vibrant, colorful and pretty to look at. They will not fade too much over time, if at all. As a matter of fact, there are countless wool rugs that are hundreds of years old that still have the same vibrancy that they had when they were originally made. You will never have to worry that your wool rugs will lose their luster over time.

Wool is a natural insulator.

Think about it: wool comes from sheep and sheep live outdoors most, if not all, of their lives. Wool is a great insulator, which means your new wool rugs could help your home stay warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. This is great news for those who live in areas that experience extreme temperatures throughout the year, like we do in Minnesota.

Wool is fire retardant and spill resistant.

Wool fibers will not hold a flame, so that means they will naturally extinguish themselves if the worst ever happens. This can offer you some much-deserved peace of mind. Also, if you spill any liquids on your wool rugs, the liquid will not immediately absorb into the fibers. It will give you time to blot up the spills before they fully sink into the fibers and potentially stain your rugs.

Wool is a renewable and sustainable resource.

More and more people are becoming aware of the ways their choices can impact the environment. Wool rugs are eco-friendly because wool is a naturally renewable and sustainable resource.
