Frequently Asked Questions about Carpets

What are the different types of carpet fibres?

Wool: Fabulous resilience to soiling, stains and flammability. Long lasting, easy to maintain and also provides natural insulation for winter months. Many of our wool carpets are often a blend with manmade fibres adding both durability and strength.

Polypropylene: Ideal for busy households, polypropylene carpets boast fabulous stain resistant properties, cleanable with a diluted bleach solution. A hardwearing manmade carpet fibre that resists fading and above all is affordable.

Nylon/Polyamide: Hardest wearing synthetic fibre that has a longer lasting appearance, usually the fibre used for bold colours.
