How its made
Wool carpet is made by weaving or tufting fibres of wool yarn together into a thick, durable carpet. The process starts by spinning raw wool fibres into yarns of different thicknesses and colours. The yarns are then dyed to achieve the desired colour and pattern.
In the tufting process, the yarns are inserted into a pre-woven backing using a tufting machine. In some cases, the yarns are sheared to a uniform height to create a soft surface. The tufted carpet is then covered with a latex backing for stability and durability.
Overall, the process of making wool carpets is a combination of traditional craftsmanship and modern technology.
