Wool Carpets 

If you’re looking for a soft flooring option, wool carpets are your best choice. Wool is a sustainable, natural resource that’s recyclable and biodegradable, and its’ excellent insulation properties make your home more energy efficient too! Many of our wool carpets are from British companies, using wool from British sheep which not only helps support the local farmers but also reduces the emissions from transportation and importing from abroad.
