Wools of New Zealand Brand Quality Assured


When it comes to the environment, wool carpets are exceptional - as you would expect from a natural fibre

Wool fibres absorb a wide range of pollutant gasses from the atmosphere, permanently. The air in a wool-carpeted room will be fresher and cleaner, a subtle but important factor.


Wool carpets absorb sound, creating a more peaceful environment, important in guest rooms, bedrooms, meeting rooms, restaurants, in fact any busy area.


Wool carpets will absorb moisture and release heat during higher humidity, cool periods (such as at night) and release it again, and provide a cooling effect during warmer periods, such as during the day. Only wool has such a pronounced air-conditioning effect.

Wool carpets have been shown to be safe and non allergenic. Dust mites will not survive in a wool carpet,and dust particles are trapped in the pile.Carpet is better than hard flooring at reducing dust in the environment.

Wool carpets are naturally anti-static, due to their moisture-absorbing qualities. In addition, anti-static treatments are routinely applied by manufacturers, and are a requirement for contract carpets.

New Zealand sheep farmers meet the world’s strict requirements for delivering chemical free, humanely grown pure natural wool. Occasionally, necessary animal health remedies are used which are approved and safe, and are completely removed from the wool during processing.

Dyes used to make wool carpets are industry-standard, and modern processes ensure pollution free processing.


Wool carpets are insect resistant when treated to Wools of New Zealand standards. Tiny amounts of environmentally safe, approved insecticides are permanently added during dyeing to ensure no insects will damage the carpet.


Wool is bio-degradable, breaking down to nitrogen-rich soil nutrients.
