Seriously stylish and ethically woven, our soft wool rugs are beautiful in more ways than one.
HANDWOVEN WOOL RUGS
Rugs are a fantastic way to give a room a style lift and make your home feel more comfortable and cosy, especially when such a warm and natural fibre as wool is used. By adding a beautifully designed 100% wool rug to your interior, you can instantly pull together a room and help create balance in your interior through harmonising colours and patterns.
But with dozens of types of wool rugs out there, it can be difficult to know which kind you should be looking for, even before you consider colour and design.
PURE WOOL RUGS FOR THE LIVING ROOM, BEDROOM OR OFFICE
A large wool rug or a round wool rug in the living room can be used to group together pieces of furniture, providing you with a cosy focal point for your interior. In the office, a modern wool rug or cream wool rug brings some lightness to the room, creating a bright, comfortable atmosphere to accompany you as you work.
Whether you’re searching for a modern wool rug for the office or a traditional wool rug for your home, always opt for a pure wool rug. Durable, natural and soft, pure wool can be woven and dyed into almost any type of pattern or finish, which makes it a versatile choice, no matter your interior style or preference.
ARE NATURAL WOOL RUGS SUITABLE FOR ALLERGY SUFFERERS?
With its naturally anti-static, hypoallergenic properties, a 100% wool rug does more than help your home look and feel fresh – it’s also a great choice for those who suffer from certain types of allergies.
The fibres in a natural wool rug, and particularly a modern wool rug with undyed wool, can help trap dust and other pollutants that might cause irritation to allergy sufferers. With regular cleaning and care, pure wool rugs can be suitable for allergy sufferers, meaning everyone can enjoy its beauty and benefits in their home.
TAKING CARE OF YOUR WOOL RUG
Woollen rugs are easier to keep clean than you think. Woollen fibres trap a lot of dirt, dust and other particles which are easily removed by vacuuming. Patterned wool rugs also can be effective at concealing light stains, which makes them a practical floor piece for the parts of your home that are exposed to a lot of foot traffic.
Having a wool rug in your living room and bedroom will actually make your house safer and healthier to live in, so there’s no second-guessing the benefits of fantastic woollen fibres as a material. Just take care to vacuum your rug regularly – with a little love and attention, you can make your wool rug last season after season as a piece to treasure for many years to come.
KEEP COSY DURING WINTER WITH A PURE WOOL RUG
With its naturally insulating fibres, a pure wool rug can be your best weapon against the cold during the chillier months of the year. It will help to keep your home warm and toes toasty, so you’re especially cosy during winter. When the summer months come around, you’ll discover how the temperature-regulating properties of a pure wool rug will be beneficial even during warmer seasons, as wool wicks sweat and keeps the air in your living room or bedroom cool.
LONG-LASTING, DURABLE WOOL RUGS
The quality of the wool used to create a rug has a big impact on the finished piece. A durable, high-quality 100% wool rug should last for years and still look beautiful after being a much-loved focal point in a room. To achieve this standard, it’s necessary to select only the best fibres to spin into yarn. Then, highly-skilled craftspeople weave this yarn on a loom to create a flawlessly-made piece, full of subtle details that will make you fall for your new wool rug.
WHAT SIZE OF WOOL RUG IS THE RIGHT ONE FOR MY SPACE?
Wool rugs and runners are available in several sizes. The common sizes are 140x200 cm, 160x230 cm, and 200x300 cm. Large rectangular wool rugs are suitable for placing under a table or in a living space. Large wool rugs are also a good size if you want to layer your wool rugs for a cosy, eclectic look and add a modern and on-trend touch to your home.
Round wool rugs add softness to a smaller room and help balance out angular shapes. Wool runner rugs are a great solution for narrow spaces like the hallway, adding warmth.

TRADITIONAL AND CONTEMPORARY 100% WOOL RUGS
Both contemporary and traditional wool rug designs are woven on a loom using a plain weave, or are tufted to produce a soft, lush pile. The higher the pile, the softer the rug will be. The majority of URBANARA's hand woven wool rugs are made with 100% pure, natural wool for the ultimate in home luxury.
Traditional wool rugs with Oriental and Aztec designs look beautiful against hardwood flooring and light coloured tiles. Some traditional wool rugs have fringing, too, which gives the piece an elaborate finishing touch. Alternatively, if you would prefer a more modern, Scandinavian wool rug, try pairing it with floor cushions or a pouffe to create a contemporary lounging nook in your living room or bedroom.
Of course, whether you opt for a traditional or scandi wool rug, it’s important to choose a piece which you can treasure for seasons to come. Muted yet modern, a white wool rug or grey wool rug can be a timeless piece, sure to transcend seasons for a long time to come.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT COLOUR PALETTE: WHITE, CREAM AND GREY WOOL RUGS
A modern wool rug can help to bring a little warmth and softness to a contemporary interior. For a modern look, select a wool rug in calming tones that will match your space, furniture and interior style.
Wool rugs in natural colours – this could be an off-white, cream or grey wool rug – help create a harmonising, relaxing atmosphere in the home. Far from being plain or uninteresting, a cream wool rug can add a subtle accent to overlooked parts of a room: just add a chunky weave or patterned tuft, for example.
