pure hand-spun wool rug has fabulous naturally occurring properties
that make it a necessity for your health and home. As an authentic
collectible wool rug, this rug is hand-spun pure wool (from a living
animal) that has neither been chemically washed, nor mixed with
synthetic polymers, nor spun by machine. All these processes destroy the
physical properties of pure hand-spun wool that make it so beneficial
to your health and home. Here are some benefits of pure wool:
- Pure wool rugs are natural, healthy products that are non-allergenic,
which is beneficial for those of you who suffer from allergies or
asthma. Because they are not mixed with synthetics, pure wool rugs are
non-toxic. Unlike synthetic wall-to-wall carpeting with its chemical
sealants and adhesives, no toxic gasses are emitted from pure wool rugs.
The naturally inherent lanolin coating on the wool fibers also acts as a
repellent to dust mites.
Pure wool is also considered a living
thing. It remarkably is able to release moisture it attracts from the
air back into the atmosphere, making it resilient to mold or mildew, and
reducing static electricity. This natural process also enables pure
wool to purify indoor air of common household pollutants, by trapping
them inside the wool fiber. Such household contaminants include sulfur
dioxide, nitrogen dioxide, and formaldehyde gasses that are emitted from
common chemical-based household products, such as cleaners and
synthetic carpets. Exposure to these pollutants is being reported as the
cause of many illnesses, including neurological and respiratory
disorders. Doctors are prescribing natural wool products for patients
suffering from Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS) and other
Fire Resistant The high moisture and
protein content of pure wool makes it naturally resistant to fire. Pure
wool is self-extinguishable. This means that even if you drop a burning
match on the rug, the burnt fibers will be only those that touched the
flame, and can be brushed away.
Stain Resistant Unlike
machine-made synthetic rugs, hand-woven pure wool rugs do not "hold"
dirt. The natural construction of the wool fibers keeps dirt on the
fibers' surface and prevents it from being trapped inside the core. This
makes vacuuming very easy. The absence of a "backing" on a hand-woven
pure wool rug also allows dirt to pass through to the floor over time,
thus preserving the life of the rug. The protective layer of lanolin on
the pure wool fibers makes these rugs stain resistant. Liquid spills are
repelled to the upper surface of the wool, and can be blotted up with
Durable Pure hand-spun wool is the
preferred fiber in Oriental rugs that will receive frequent floor use.
Such rugs will last you at least a lifetime, and can be handed down
generation to generation with proper care.
