They come in several levels of thickness, and the one to purchase depends on your taste and what you are looking for. These area rugs were very popular in the 1960s and 1970s and often appear in movies from that era. However, they have definitely made a comeback and there are plenty that you can choose from.

Another major advantage of the wool rug is that it can be cleaned very easily. If it is not heavily soiled, all you need to do is shake it out and most of the dirt will fall away. This is due to the natural oils within the pure wool that resist the accumulation of a lot of dirt particles. If the rug has been heavily used, you could add some water and a little natural soap and then shake it out. Afterward, leave it to dry naturally and it will be good as new.

A bedroom with a wool rug will definitely have a romantic feel to it. As most wool rugs are a white or cream color, they will go with the majority of color schemes.

This will give your feet a nice treat both before and after you bathe or shower. The durability of wool makes it ideal for bathroom and shower room usage.

Whether the bathroom is white, blue, cream, or peach, your wool area rug will look perfect in there. Match it with soft, fluffy towels that are the same color, and you will have a wonderful accessory that will add luxury and comfort to your overall home decor.

So when you are thinking of adding a little luxury to your life, keep the wool area rugs in mind. This old-new area rug is perfect for most homes.
