When you sit at night with your feet up watching your favourite soap opera and sipping at a beverage of your choosing, if you have a quality, affordable wool carpet on the floor you can have confidence in its “inflammability”.
The complex composition of wool, based upon its cell structure, combined with its high water and nitrogen content make wool naturally flame retardant. It does not light well and will often self extinguish.
In the event that it does burn it produces less smoke and toxic fumes during combustion than synthetic fibres, making it the safer choice.
