Wool is the most common material for rugs. It’s prized for its durability and softness. Since it’s a natural fiber it can adjust to various climates. In colder climates, a wool rug will warm up your room, in warmer climates it can have a cool touch.
Woolen rugs are strong and have a good resistance to soiling. But since wool is very absorbent, it can be difficult to remove stains once they have been absorbed by the fiber. As with all fibers, the best method of preventing a stain, is to treat the spill as quickly as possible or use a professional cleaner.
Note that wool absorbs humidity, so it is not ideal for damp spaces. It can also be subject to fading when placed in too much direct sunlight. Wool is flame resistant, unlike synthetic materials.
