Q Will cleaning my wool carpet remove the lanolin and make it lose its lovely softness?

Answer:

No, 99.5% of the lanolin is already removed during the wool’s processing making it ready for use in your carpet. In fact if the lanolin was left in it would cause the carpet to soil rapidly. There are many cleaning products out there that are not suitable for use on wool, they may include bleaches or be too alkaline and cause colour loss or migration. Don’t worry though, for peace of mind just make sure the cleaning solution used is WoolSafe Approved and your carpet will be left soft and clean.
