Wool is nature’s perfect fiber for fine rugs and carpet. It is naturally stain-resistant, static-free, and enduringly comfortable under foot. You’ll benefit from the intrinsic qualities that make wool carpets easy to maintain:

Wool fiber’s naturally scaly surface holds soil high in the carpet pile where it can easily be removed with vacuuming.

Wool’s inherent elasticity resists crushing and naturally rebounds from everyday wear and tear.

Wool fibers naturally contain a protective outer layer that prevents water-based spills from penetrating. With simple routine maintenance and prompt attention to accidents, your Emery Park wool rugs and carpet will look great for many years.


Carpet and rugs receive considerable abuse from dirt, sand, dust, various spills, and everyday foot traffic. Frequent vacuuming with a quality machine will prolong the appearance and life of your wool floor covering. In the first year, vacuum at least two or three times each week to remove excess fuzz that may accumulate on the carpet surface. This fuzzing is the normal result of the weaving process and does not shorten the life of your wool floor covering.


Be sure your vacuum cleaner is suitable for your type of carpet. Dyson vacuums are not recommended due to their abrasive high-torque brush and high suction power.


Turn off the beater bar and use the suction setting only, emptying the bag or tank regularly to maintain strong suction power.


Don’t forget spaces under furniture, behind curtains, and where your carpet meets the wall.
