Bring Nature’s Miracle Fibre Indoors

Bring Nature’s Miracle Fibre Indoors

Wool is truly amazing. Not only is it great for clothing, but the natural thermal properties of wool are now being utilised in carpets to help keep our homes warmer and more comfortable year-round.

Natural insulator 

The natural fibres in wool carpets trap warm air. This creates a natural insulation barrier which makes for comfortable living, and translates into energy savings – on average 8-13% on energy costs.

Wool carpets also help create a quieter home through natural sound absorption properties.

Health benefits 

Wool ‘breathes’ – it has a natural ability to regulate the humidity of an interior. Absorbing moisture when the atmosphere is damp and releasing it when the atmosphere is dry, wool carpets create a more comfortable, warmer environment. It does this without feeling damp or cold to the touch unlike some synthetics. Good news for asthma sufferers: wool carpets can help prevent mould growth from dampness in the home – the biggest influence on adult asthma.


When choosing your wool carpet don’t skimp on the underlay. At Flooring First Taupo we recommend Padco Stratus luxury carpet cushion, manufactured locally in Turangi.

Benefits include: 

  • Non-allergenic: the best choice for families with allergy concerns
  • Vapour barrier: keeps moisture out, necessary for life’s little messes
  • Mildew proof: perfect for New Zealand
  • Vapour barrier: stops dust mites with no added chemicals
