‘Wool is proven to significantly reduce indoor air contaminates within seven hours of installation and to keep contaminates out of the air for 30 years’, says Elise Demboski, Executive director of North America for Wools of New Zealand. People tend to forget what a unique product wool really is. In fact, there is no other fiber on earth quite like it. Wool is a natural fiber that has been a source of comfort for more than 12,000 years. Science has yet to make a manmade equivalent that contains all of the same natural benefits and advantages of wool.
Sheep have managed to evolve a highly sophisticated and complex covering for themselves. Their fleece varies in coarseness, color, and length depending on the breed and climate. Crimped fibers give wool carpets built-in resilience to crushing. The wool fibers are also naturally flame retardant which keeps your home safer. Wool also has excellent sound and heat insulation properties. Although many materials pass tests for minimum VOC (volatile organic compound) emissions, wools goes a giant step further by actually removing these contaminates from the air and improving the health of the environment. With the clean air certified label you know that your wool is guaranteed to rapidly absorb common household contaminates such as formaldehyde, sulphur dioxide and nitrogen dioxide. The outer cells of the wool fiber repel water, while the inner cells absorb moisture and these harmful contaminants and will not release them back into the air; even when heated!
“Wool has incredible attributes that deserve to be recognized,” says Connie Berry, director of marketing for Karastan. “As the largest manufacturer of wool carpets and rugs in America, we applaud Wools of New Zealand for giving wool a greater voice. Solid scientific backing and high testing standards, give the Wool: Clean Air Certified label impressive credibility that we are proud to carry on our products.” Hemphill’s Rugs & Carpets is also proud to offer our clients the best products available for a safer and more comfortable home. In addition, Hemphill’s is a Premier Partner with the Wools of New Zealand and Brett Hemphill is a member of the Retail Advisory Council for the Wools of New Zealand.
