While synthetic carpet is the norm, opting for wool is a luxurious but realistic choice. It pays to know the differences and what to look out for.

As wool carpets are now becoming more popular due to comparable pricing, longer lifespan and that it is a natural product and biodegradable, it is essential that you be aware of the differences in installation techniques to avoid any problems down the road.
