Fibre Care Guide: Wool


Renowned for its exceptional cosiness, luxury and high quality, wool is one of our favourite rug fibres. Whilst wool rugs can sometimes require a little more TLC than synthetic fibre rugs, don't be deterred, as a wool rug becomes better with age and is considered a true heirloom item that will last for many years to come when looked after properly!  

Wool is a natural, renewable fibre that deters bacterial growth. The fibres contain lanolin which natural repels light stains and dust mites. Wool rugs are warm underfoot, plush and work beautifully with any interiors style. 

"A wool rug is a great investment to instantly add that warm and cozy feeling to your space during the cooler months!" Effie, Miss Amara Rug Stylist 


Vacuum: Natural shedding can be expected and is completely normal. Vacuum regular 1-3 times a week on a gentle and low setting, so that you're not breaking or pulling at any of the wool fibres. 

Spot-cleaning: Gently blot with water using a clean cloth or paper towel as soon as possible. If requires, you can mix a tiny amount of mild detergent with water to make a diluted cleaning solution. Then use your clean cloth or paper towel to gently blot the area further. Do not apply any harsh cleaning solutions directly onto the rug. Avoid any rubbing actions, as this can rub the stain further into the fibres. 

Underlay: An underlay to go under your rug will extend its life by preventing a build up of dirt/dust underneath, ensuring it doesn't penetrate the underside. 

💡Remember, this is a general care guide, and every rug is very different! Depending on the weave and construction of your wool rug, you may need to treat yours differently. For more specific advice on your specific rug style, please contact our customer care team
