Quality Wool rugs offer the best UK value in contemporary online styles

What makes new wool rugs so desirable? Is it, when you first lay a modern wool rug on the floor you can’t help but appreciate the style and sophistication that the subtle tones of wool conveys in a room? And, is this why UK interior designers tend to favour it over other fibres? When it comes to designer rugs with ultra-modern characteristics such as varying pile heights or multi textures, then a hand made wool rug really hits the mark. But why?

Most of the wool rugs produced today are handmade, be it handwoven on looms as flat woven kilim rugs or hand-knotted and hand-tufted as rugs with a pile. Of these fabrication methods, hand-tufting is the quickest and most versatile technique of production, and therefore most new rugs are made this way. Hand tufting guns can easily create cut pile and loop pile textures in differing heights with relative ease, this appeals to the designers creative edge. At the same time, the dying versatility of wool also provides them with virtual unlimited colour options.

Why choose wool Rugs?

Wool rugs offer durabillity and have superb appearance retention, it not only has a natural resistance to soiling and general stains, it is also fire resistant. Wood-burning stove are popuar in the UK, if you have one or have an open fire wool rugs are a must, as woollen fibre simply singes rather than burns when hot wood fragments spit onto the pile surface. Wool has fantastic dyeability too, it absorbs colours well and has a natural dullish lustre that is fairly difficult to replicate in synthetic fabrics. All in all, it’s the perfect fibre, a fibre that we’ve been using to adorn our homes for centuries. But it can have some downsides too.

Because wool is a natural fibre and cut from a sheep’s back, it needs to be spun into long yarn to facilitate weaving. However, this process is also the reason wool rugs shed when new. The shorter staple lengths of yarn will detach from the main body causing fluff. For this reason, it's not the best choice for longer piles such as shaggy rugs. It’s virtually perfect for short piles, but avoid long shaggy piles unless you want to endlessly fill the vacuum cleaner with fluff.

Modern or traditional wool rugs

Whether it’s an uber-modern contemporary pattern, an ageless traditional design or a unique bespoke designer wool rug, there is always that air of quality. The subdued natural tones that a woollen pile offers is uniquely attractive. Obtainable in many grades, you can generally expect to pay a premium for higher qualities such as Marino and New Zealand wools. These better quality yarns aren't cheap, so it’s expected to pay a little more to achieve that classic soft touch. The majority of wool rugs for sale in the UK are hand-tufted which means you usually get a nice heavy chunky handfull. Most are handmade, produced by Indian or Chinese artisans, there are also many fine examples of hand-knotted Persian, Turkish and Nomadic Tribal carpets available to buy in our online shop.

Incorporate some viscose in your next wool rug

To create that interesting designer rug look without going overboard with colours, interior designers often use a combination of wool with viscose fibres. Viscose fibres, also known as Rayon, Art Silk and Bamboo silk is basically an artificial silk, and like genuine silk, it has a very glossy sheen. Even when the wool and viscose are dyed the same colour there is a contrast in the duller wool shades and the brilliant viscose. It’s the perfect mix when areas of a rug just need a little vibrancy.

Please browse our wool rug collections, whether your hearts desire is a designer rug using abstract, geometrics, motifs, chevrons or stripes there is a myriad of colours to tempt. Or, maybe you crave a soft tonal or plain colour with exquisite carving that will add texture to your floor. Browse the many examples in our categories that range in sizes and shapes, patterned or self-coloured, long pile or short pile. You’ll find some great discount offers on thick handmade options too!
