Wool Rug Repair
When looking to buy a rug for your home, its tempting to go for aesthetics only and to forget about functionality. Luckily with wool rugs you get both.
Not only that, wool has other beneficial properties in that it’s a good insulator, they’re luxurious to the touch and they can last for 40, 50 or 60 years. They’re machine made or handwoven, but people prefer the handcrafted ones because they’re more relaxed and casual looking and more interesting.They have lots of knots to bring about wonderful designs.
Wool Rugs aren’t Immortal - they’ll require Repairs
Wool rugs are hardy and durable too and will outlast synthetic fibers any day. And yet wool rugs aren’t immortal – they will eventually need to be cleaned and repaired at some time.
You could say that the most common repairs seen with wool rugs is end repairs. When the fringe is torn, the knots of the rug slide away and you witness your rug getting shorter and shorter. This is because when the edges of a wool rug come undone, the pile of the rug wears down from general wear and tear, regardless of how well the rug was made.

Repairing a Rug Yourself – Disastrous
Many wool rugs are brought to us after the owners try to use a sewing machine to repair their hand woven rug. They’ve not only made the wrong color- and thread choice, but have actually ended up causing sometimes irreversible damage to the rug.
There’s a reason wool hand woven rugs are repaired by hand. A sewing machine just can’t get around and in between the foundation fibers as what is possible by hand. Bottom line is, if you have a hand woven rug with unraveling edges, the repairs need to be done by hand – our experienced hands.
