Wool is a natural, renewable fibre that is grown by sheep continuously all year round. Under the right conditions wool is totally recyclable. Once a rug has reached the end of its life the wool can be returned to the soil and composted. Kasthall uses wool that originates mainly from Europe and New Zealand. Wool from New Zealand has a unique whiteness, which is ideal for producing light and sophisticated fashionable shades. It also has the ideal properties for dye absorption.
The wool yarn that Kasthall uses is relatively thick and has coarse fibres that make our rugs hard-wearing and durable. Wool has a natural fat coating that makes it dirt repellent. This combination of factors means that your Kasthall rug can be walked on, played on and lived on for many years. Because wool does not burn like other fibres, wool rugs are ideal for locations with special fire requirements and do not need to be treated with flame retardants. Another advantage of wool is its low risk of triggering allergies, since it traps dust and dirt particles.
