You only need to see the sheep out in the fields, roaming the moors day and night in all weather conditions to see how tough wool is. The wool is battered by wind, rain, hail and snow so needs to be very resilient and have natural water repellency to keep the wet and cold away from the skin and the sheep warm and snug. It is this natural water repellency that gives wool carpet owners the time to blot up a spill before it soaks into the carpet.

We’ve created live feed of the 2015 The Flooring Show in Harrogate. Visitors will see evidence of how well wool carpets perform under extreme conditions, with a live video feed and, a demonstration of the unique "Bouncebackability" effect - the natural ability of wool carpets to return to their original appearance after they have been trodden on all day. Curtis says "we all know how safe wool is, and visitors to the Show will be given leaflets to explain the natural health benefits of wool. We have some great imagery for retailers to use and we think it will give everyone an opportunity to learn more about wool and why it is the best choice naturally!”
