Wool Blends: Wool mixed with a synthetic fibre.
Wool Blends are created by combining wool and synthetic fibers in various percentages. Blending wool and synthetic fibers reduces fuzzing and shedding and will maintain the carpet’s appearance for a long time. At the same time wool blends offer the beautiful feel and natural look of wool.
- Wool blends are usually 80% wool and 20% synthetic fibre but also come in a variety of other ratios.
- Offer the resilience and durability found in synthetic fibres with the natural appearance and luxurious feel of wool.
- Mixing synthetic fibre with wool can help to hold the twist definition in some carpet styles, providing improved wearing ability and reduced shedding from short fibres.
