I'd really like to order a sample of the G-5070 wool rug but it is on back order. What are my options if I don't want to wait that long. I don't want to have to send the largest size rug back if it doesn't work for me.
The feel of wool is not universal. Wool is known to be soft but there are varying degrees of quality. I've also found the amount of wool making up each fiber makes a difference too. The larger the fiber, the less soft it is. For these reasons, if you are considering a wool rug it may be best to order a sample first so you are not disappointed. Or ask customer service, Some synthetic blends are softer then wool plus they are cheapter.
My advice to those looking for a wool area rug, is to know how long the nap of the carpet is before ordering, I have ordered a wool rug before that was not very thick, and it just wasn't very soft, but the longer fiber wool rugs are much softer
I still have a wool rug from ten years ago. It requires vacuuming, care, and rotating, but it is still in great condition.
There are some wool rugs that don't shed. Now they are the only ones I get. It is just so disturbing how much of the fiber comes out over the years. You wonder how there is any left!
IMO wool is the best way to go. I have owned probably 10 over my lifetime and they were just nicer than the other materials. I recently bought one that was blended with "art silk" and it was beautiful as well.
I have a wool rug under my dining room table and it has held up for I think 8 years under there. It vaccuums up easily and hasn't gotten any stains on it. We love it.
I ordered a wool rug just over a year ago and it has held up pretty well, but one area of the rug started looking thin. I had taken care of it properly like spot treatment and vacuum as recommended. Came to find out I had not been rotating the rug and that corner was getting walked on many times a day. I was told by the Plush Rugs staff that the normal life of a wool rug that is tufted is 3-10 years. So don't forget to rotate your rugs, it will make a difference
Are the wool rugs holding dye well or will they bleed on my wood floor?
My first rug was an inddor/outdoor rug, so when I got a wool rug I was so happy with how soft it feels. The material makes a BIG difference!
I realized a good tip to help advise people thinking of buying a wool rug. I have only owned wool rugs over the years and grew to understand the shedding is normal. Then I replaced one with a rug that was hand-knotted. It does not shed. I was happy but initially puzzled. Then I realized all my previous rugs were hand-tufted so it sheds more than my new one where the fibers are knotted together. I hope this helps anyone thinking of buying a wool rug. It really is the best material available for rugs.
Is it common for wool to shed? I received my wool rug and it's shedding quite a bit. I've had wool rugs before and have never had this much of an issue with shedding. Do you have any recommendations on how to prevent this from happening?
Im wondering about durability. I know your site says that wool is durable but how does it do compared to other fiber? And is it good to get a mixed rug or all wool?
I have a rug in my bedroom that is wool and I have had it 3 years and it is still in one piece and looking good. And it's super easy to clean. I am looking for a new rug for the family room and I will be sticking with wool.
i ordered a wool area rug for my new living room which has hardwood flooring. it has been great for the kids to play on without having to sit on the hard floor. but just in case i do have them not bring juice, chocolate, etc anywhere near it! i love it to much! lol!

Wool rugs are beautiful, heirloom-worthy investments in your home. These all-natural products far outlast carpets made from synthetic fibers in classic style and durability.
Stain Resistance: These rugs are naturally stain-resistant due to the organic coating of each individual fiber that repels water and stains. This keeps contaminants from penetrating deep into the pile of the carpet. Wool rugs can usually be cleaned with only a quick vacuuming after disabling the beater bar. Stains usually only require a wet rag and some clear dish soap.
Durability: Feel free to place these rugs in an area of your home with heavy foot traffic. These rugs retain their original shape much longer than other types of rugs because the actual structure of the fiber is curled like a spring - meaning it's harder to grind down wool pile than pile of a synthetic rug.
Health: Wool is naturally hypoallergenic and has been shown to act as a natural air purifier by absorbing common household contaminants from the air. These rugs do not support the growth of mildew. Wool also acts as a natural insulator, providing warmth in the winter and providing year-round humidity control. It has a lower rate of flame spread, heat release, and heat of combustion than synthetics, and does not melt or drip when burned in case of fire.
