The following information on carpet fibers was obtained from a Wall Designers partner, www.mohawk-carpets.com.

Nylon
The most frequently used carpet fiber, highly desirable due to its exceptional durability, versatility, and reasonable pricing. It can be dyed in an endless variety of colors and made into numerous styles and textures. Nylon is commonly used in residential and commercial applications.
 
Polyester
Used in residential and a few commercial applications, polyester has good color clarity, colorfastness, and resistance to water-soluble stains. All of Mohawk's staple polyester yarn comes from our state-of-the-art plastic bottle recycling facility. This "food-grade" PET Polyester fiber might be considered to be better quality than "carpet-grade" polyester fiber.
 
Polypropylene
Also known as Olefin, this fiber resists fading, generates low levels of static electricity, is favorably priced, and can be engineered in outdoor applications. Due to its manufacturing process, polypropylene inherently resists stains. When used in specific carpet constructions, this yarn will perform as well as most resilient fibers.
 
Wool
Those with a sense of style - and a sense of value - choose wool carpets and rugs. Why? Because wool simply looks beautiful, longer.

Natural wool ages gracefully, continually renewing itself and developing a rich patina as years pass. While synthetic fibers will become scratched, scarred and dull over time, wool carpets and rugs remain vibrant to the eye and supple to the touch.

Your style demands high design and high performance; natural wool delivers, year after year after year.

Do you know the real story about real wool carpets and rugs?

  • What makes New Zealand wool so desirable? It is the whitest, cleanest, purest wool in the world - the natural choice for natural superiority.

  • Wool carpets and rugs are fire safe, providing beautiful peace of mind.

  • Wool absorbs contaminants in the air, improving the indoor air quality and helping you breathe easier.

  • Real wool will make your home more beautiful; and by its very nature, it can help save the earth.
