When it comes to purchasing carpet, you have a choice in the type of fiber used. The majority of carpet produced in the United States contains one of six pile fibers: nylon, polypropylene, acrylic, polyester, cotton or wool. Although making up only a small percentage of fiber used to make carpet, wool is a traditional favorite, offering a deep, rich look and feel.
At Hopkins Carpet One, we carry various brands and types of carpet to meet each customer’s needs. If you are looking for a natural, soft flooring choice in the Twin Cities, consider Masland wool carpet.
Wool carpet has excellent resilience and durability. Many synthetic fibers try to duplicate the characteristics of wool, but you can’t beat the real, natural fiber. Wool cleans especially well, provides beautiful colors and adds a warm, soft feel underfoot.
Masland wool carpet, also known as strong wool, is an excellent choice for anyone seeking wool carpet. Other benefits of this carpeting include the following:
Wool carpet has the ability to absorb potentially harmful indoor air pollutants such as formaldehyde, nitrogen dioxide and sulphur dioxide.
Wool’s chemical structure gives it the ability to actively absorb and desorb moisture and to gain and release heat depending on the external and internal environment – thus buffering a room against environmental changes.
Wool carpet can significantly improve the acoustic performance of rooms since it acts as a sound absorber and also dampens any impact noise in a room.
Wool is naturally flame resistant and it’s performance exceeds that of all other commonly encountered textile fibers. Wool carpet takes a very high temperature to ignite, doesn’t melt or stick upon burning, is self extinguishing, and releases less smoke and toxic gases during combustion.
Masland wool carpet is a healthy and comfortable flooring option for any home or office. Wool’s ability to effectively buffer heat and moisture, combined with its propensity to control indoor air pollutants make it ideal for creating safe and healthy interior environments. With several colors, styles and patterns to choose from, you are sure to find the perfect look for your space.
