The mention of wool may no longer surprise you as this material is vastly known for its durability and quality. It has long been the norm that materials sourced from Mother Nature are inevitably some of the finest ones in the world.
Rugs made of wool come at a hefty price only because they last the longest, despite being a soft haven even when barefoot. Even more so if the wool is sourced from highlands where a sheep’s wool is thicker and would be more resistant to dirt, dust, and water.
Natural materials are always the superior quality in comparison to synthetic ones. The material of the base should be wool, silk, or cotton for better quality. Wool rugs should be completely matte in comparison to a shiny silk rug. Natural materials also have an effect of the air quality of the air in the room that it is placed in.
