The wool strands are punched into the backing of the material to create tufts.

Choosing The Best Wool Rug
Choosing a rug can be daunting, but there are some easy guidelines you can use to help you select the Best Wool Rug for your room. Wool is a good selection for bedrooms, dining rooms, living rooms, libraries and entry ways. We don't recommend wool rugs in bathrooms, kitchens or laundry rooms due to the chance that they will get wet and while they are absorptive, it's not the best choice where there can be a lot of water. Wool rugs are a perfect choice for bedrooms where you want something soft and luxurious. We usually select a thick shaggy wool or thick pile wool rug for bedrooms because it will will provide comfort, warmth and also quiet by absorbing sound. As far as color.... we usually select natural or muted tones for a bedroom to create that calm oasis conducive to relaxation and sleep. Living rooms or great rooms are also a wonderful place to add a wool rug. We usually select either a thick pile wool or a flatweave wool for living rooms. The thick pile wool rugs again, provide comfort and coziness to a big open space and a flat weave will provide warmth and softness but tends to be more casual in feel. Both will hold up well with high traffic. If it's a high traffic room, it's best to go with a medium tone or darker wool rug to avoid showing dirt. Dining rooms are also a good place to incorporate a wool rug. In dining rooms we recommend going with a low pile or flat weave rug so that it's easy to pull chairs in and out from under the dining table. We also usually select a medium to dark tone rug in dining rooms to prevent spills from showing.
Design Ideas: For Wool Rugs
Wool rugs come in everything from more formal designs like oriental rugs to casual design like shags and flat weave rugs. Wool rugs with stripe designs and low piles can give a room an organic casual vibe. Bold patterns like the rug in the photo above can make a major statement in a room. Because wool rugs accept dyes so well, there are many choices of wool rugs that have bright saturated colors that can make a bring vibrant color to a bland room. A beautiful natural textured wool rug can anchor the space and provide luxury, softness and a casual feel all at the same time. If you are selecting for a beach house, the natural toned wool rugs work really well. There are even some wool rugs that look like jute and give a very casual look while also providing warmth and softness of a wool. Plush rugs in soft blues also look wonderful in a beach house. We love wool dhurrie rugs in a relaxed and casual space... they come in beautiful patterns and colors that will last forever.
Care and Maintenance Of Wool Rugs
To care for wool rugs, vacuum regularly. When vacuuming set the brush so it's the furthest away from the surface of the rug. For spot cleaning, immediately blot (do not rub) with white paper towels or clean white cloth. Scoop up solids. If a cleaner must be used, test a small area before applying to the entire stain. Blot up the spill with a blotting motion and then rinse with clean water on a clean cloth. Do not saturate with water. We recommend professional cleaning once a year.
