Drawing from the wealth of diverse breeds of sheep across the world, we only choose the finest premium wool for our carpets.
Keeping out freezing temperatures, rain and snow while cooling the herds in warmer months, wool is naturally engineered to create beautiful, durable and desirable carpets.
When it comes to sustainability, wool is the natural choice. Shearing sheep is an essential process for their welfare and this annual shearing provides a continuous supply of wool year after year, making it a totally renewable raw material.
At Westex we actively work with trusted wool merchants to make sure we use the best possible wool available for our carpets. The provenance of the wool we use is also important, as it ensures our impact is always based on positive growth and best practice from ‘field to floor’.
One of wool’s great properties lies in the fibres retaining their inherent characteristics right through the process of creating a superb Westex carpet; the fibre bulk giving it inbuilt resilience for superior durability and performance.
