The Bramham Loop is manufactured in the UK from wool sourced exclusively from the British Isles.
The elegant neutral colour palette is created by expertly blending different batches of natural wool together to give a beautiful heathered effect.
Hardwearing and resilient for all areas of the home the Bramham Loop range offers a practical and resilient option with minimum environmental impact.
Is Bramham Loop carpet good for people with allergies?
Wool is usually a great choice for people with allergies as it can help filter the air in your home and help remove irritants like dust and pollen. This means these carpets are often beneficial for people with allergies or conditions such as asthma. In rare cases, people can develop an allergy to the wool itself but this is quite unusual.
Does wool carpet shed? When do wool carpets stop shedding?
Shedding is a normal occurrence with carpets made of wool, especially in the first few weeks/months after being installed. Shedding should settle down after a while but regular vacuuming will help to keep the carpet looking its best. To complicate matters, some carpets recommend using the beater bar attachment and some don’t. Some vacuums can be overly aggressive with their beater bars while others are not aggressive enough. If in doubt, contact the supplier or refer to the manufacturer’s care instructions.
Is Bramham Loop carpet good for stairs?
Yes! Wool carpets are great for stairs due to their natural resilience and springy nature and the Bramham Loop is no exception. This allows the carpet to bounce back to its original shape after being walked on and so will continue to look its best for longer than a synthetic carpet, particularly in high traffic areas like stairs.
Is Bramham Loop carpet good for people with pets?
This will depend on the pet! Bramham Loop is constructed of tiny loops of yarn (a loop pile carpet) and these loops can prove irresistible to pets with claws. The Bramham Loop has a smaller loop so a pet that isn’t intent on destroying it could be fine. Twist pile carpets are a safer bet if you are worried about claws picking at loops. You should also think about how likely your pet is to have an accident on the carpet or to use the carpet to present its latest catch to you. If either of these things seem likely, you may need to consider a different material for your flooring like laminate or bamboo that is resistant to both scratches and stains.
Do wool carpets last longer?
Usually yes. The natural resilience of wool and the ability to retain its shape even after heavy use, means a carpet made from wool has a better chance of looking good for longer than a synthetic alternative.
Is Wool Carpet Eco-Friendly/Sustainable?
Yes, absolutely! Wool comes from the sheared fleeces of sheep so is a naturally occurring fibre that regenerates rapidly and can be harvested with minimal environmental impact. Because wool is not derived from chemicals it emits no harmful VOCs and can actually benefit air quality in the home. Furthermore, at the end of its use, wool is 100% biodegradable and breaks down into nitrogen, sulphur, carbon dioxide and water which all stimulate new plant growth.
What about care/cleaning of my carpet?
Care should be taken to avoid using any harsh chemical cleaning products as these can have a detrimental effect on the appearance of your carpet.
