As a flooring material, wool is remarkably earth- people-, and pet-friendly. A natural and renewable resource, wool is also recyclable and biodegradable, and more manufacturers are adopting environmentally friendly, energy-efficient techniques for processing wool fiber into finished carpets and rugs.
Wool is also wonderfully non-allergenic, does not promote the growth of bacteria or dust mites, and does give off harmful emissions. Wool carpeting can make rooms more comfortable because it is an excellent temperature and sound insulator. Wool is also naturally flame retardant and is specified for those installations with the most stringent flammability regulations.
With its natural stain resistence and resilience, wool is an excellent investment for many rooms. It is available in an infinite variety of patterns, colors, and textures to suit any design scheme or personal taste.

Other Natural Options
Grass floor products have been used for many decades to compliment light, casual, and natural living areas.
Sisal, a fiber made from the leaves of the Agave plant, is an extremely durable and versatile floor covering. With great sound absorption and insulation properties, sisal can be dyed and woven into colorful rugs for any room, or used for high-traffic areas such as entries and stairs.
Mountain grass, or hemp, is a natural fiber prized for its strength and versatility. It naturally repels stains and is resistant to mold and mildew, making it a good flooring option for kitchens and baths, or homes in damper climates.
Seagrass is another durable, renewably produced material for natural fiber carpets and rugs. Available in many colors, textures, and patterns, it is soft underfoot and naturally stain-resistant.
