Wool is Water Repellent
While wool can absorb moisture, it repels liquids. The scales on the outside of the fiber cause liquid to roll off the surface. If water spills on your area rug, runner or broadloom, it will take quite some time before the water penetrates. Wool fiber effectively respond to changes in humidity, making wool suitable for every climate. Wool can absorb up to one-third of its own weight in vapour depending on relative humidity, synthetic fibers can only absorb 2-3% of moisture before they begin to feel wet. You won’t have to worry about spilling wine on your beautiful new white all natural wool carpet if you wipe it up quickly.
