FT Pure British 100% Wool Underlay
As British Wool Marketing Board Licensees Fairbank Textiles have developed prototype fabrics using 100% scoured Swaledale or Herdwick wools. These sheep breeds are some of the most resilient and hard-wearing in the British clip and like all wools, provide excellent insulating properties.
The resulting fabrics impart the wools natural characteristics thus ensuring excellent spring and durability in the felt and thereby improving the all round performance of the carpets.
Our wool underlay is produced entirely from clean scoured chemical free wool staple on a jute scrim, it is therefore itself recyclable.
It has superb insulation properties and a natural resilience that will also absorb irregularities in the under-floor, thereby prolonging carpet life.
Both Herdwick and Swaledale wool underlays from Fairbank Textiles offer superb quality and durability.
