Why wool carpets are in most circumstances better than synthetic carpets.
Today we went to a local distributor in the heart of our hometown Newcastle Upon Tyne to see what’s new in the shops, to keep up to date and to see what’s getting sold most.
What we couldn’t believe is that some basic synthetic low weighted carpets are more expensive than wool carpets, and as the professionals we now feel like it’s our job to tell you that in most circumstances Commerical and Domestic WOOL is by far the best value for money due to its amazing natural probabilities.
We don’t want to bore you too much because we understand there’s more to life than reading about carpets but we also appreciate you as a customer and understand carpets are not cheap so we want to help you to get the most out of your new mega investment!
