Why Wool

The most luxurious, durable and environmentally friendly

Improve the quality, safety, and comfort of your home.

Of all the carpet fibers, Helios prefers to make its floor coverings from wool. By combining the finest ingredients with in-house manufacturing, Helios Wools offer superior advantages that improve the health, comfort and beauty of your home while contributing to the betterment of our world.

Non-Allergenic

Wool is a non-allergenic fiber and does not promote the growth of bacteria or dust mites or give off harmful emissions. In fact, Helios Wools minimize allergic reactions since it is able to hold dust in its structure until it is removed by vacuum (or wet) cleaning. Helios Wools are safe for people with asthma since the fibers are to long and coarse to be inhaled.

Improves Air Quality

Helios Wools work to improve air quality by absorbing common contaminants, such as formaldehyde (a common pollutant emitted by building materials), nitrogen dioxide, and sulfur, by binding the gases irreversibly in its structure. Helios Wools are safe for people with asthma since the fibers are to long and coarse to be inhaled.

Renewable & Biodegradable

Wool is renewable. Sheep can be shorn every nine to twelve months, with New Zealand sheep producing the cleanest, whitest wool in the world. Wool is biodegradable. In soil, wool readily biodegrades to produce nitrogen, sulfur, carbon dioxide and water, which are all plant nutrients. Wool is biodegradable.

Wools of New Zealand

The truth is, not all wool carpets and rugs are created equal. As wonderful as wool is, it is just the beginning of the carpet making process. The difference lies in the manufacturing. Most companies use commissioned spinners, dyers, and even tufters, to help create their products. Not Helios. We control every step of the manufacturing process so you can feel confident in your flooring purchase.

Helios chooses to use New
Zealand wool over other wool
types because it offers superior
advantages.

New Zealand wool is the purest, whitest wool in the world, offering excellent dyeing characteristics that create long-lasting colors. Our wool is r aised with little impact on the natural landscape. New Zealand wool is produced on land mostly unsuitable for other agricultural purposes and does not compete with food production. No internationally banned pesticides are used on New Zealand farms, making New Zealand’s sheep industry one of the world’s greenest animal production systems.
