Do you ever wonder why when you walk into a newly built or renovated home it carries a potent, toxic odor? Part of that problem is mainstream carpeting. New, mainstream synthetic carpet does something called “off-gassing”—much like paints, but at a much HIGHER LEVEL
The smell is that of toxic chemicals. These have a negative effect on your health.
Carpet and commonly used glues that hold the carpet “fibers” to its backing include a host of toxic chemicals, including toluene, xylene, and formaldehyde. These are all known carcinogens.
Also typically included in carpeting is health-compromising VOC’s (volatile organic compounds). These can off-gas in your home for months, and sometimes even years.
Because of all of these chemicals and their high toxicity, carpet can be one of the most dangerous home interior products you put in your house.
There is tons of documentation about negative reactions to mainstream carpeting in pets, children, and adults alike.
For one startling documentary in particular, visit http://www.holisticmed.com/carpet/tc1.txt
Have you stopped to think about what mainstream carpet is made of? The answer? PLASTIC! This is absolutely crazy. Does this make any sense at all?
You take the time to create an entirely beautiful home, and then, you lay down a “plastic tarp” on the floor. It makes no sense at all, but we do it.
Standard “plastic” carpet coverings typically go by other descriptive names:
• nylon (a thermoplastic polyamide that accounts for 75% of the carpets being made today)
• polypropylene (a thermoplastic polymer that makes up 35% of the total fibers used in the carpet industry).
Needless to say, you end up getting rid of the carpeting 7-10 years later, after the wear and tear is evident. And, it heads to a landfill where it will REMAIN FOREVER.
And then you begin the carpet shopping process over again, buying a new “plastic tarp” to make your home look “fresh and clean” once more.
Bio-Floor™ is the only truly nontoxic, all natural carpet made in North America.
The biggest difference: EARTH WEAVE APPLIES NO DYES, PESTICIDES, OR STAIN PROTECTIONS TO THEIR CARPET. AND, IT’S PURE, NATURALLY OCCURING, 100% WOOL. This allows for the best possible indoor air quality—and less allergies and reactions for you.
Earth Weave is currently the ONLY CARPET COMPANY using an all natural primary backing (cotton/hemp) which makes the carpeting SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED to be biodegradable and non-toxic, while the carpets’ durability allows for decades of use.
Bio-Floor™was developed to be the purest, least toxic floor covering available. It can be used without reservation to provide comfort and durability, AND maintain indoor air quality and your health.
Bio-Floor is used extensively by those suffering from chemical sensitivity as well as those that are concerned about the environment.
Biofloor wool carpeting also exceeds flammability requirements—wool is actually very flame resistant by nature. Bio-Floor is made in the U.S.A.
Basically, if you have kids, pets, or are breathing yourself, you have no other choice. You must use something different than the mainstream carpeting on the market today.
Chemically laced carpets should not be used. Hands down, absolutely, NONE.
This is IMPERITIVELY true if children or pets live or stay inside your home. There is no one closer to the ground breathing in the carpet more. Not to mention, their small body size creates a higher toxic load in the body.
The good news? It is still possible to have carpet. Carpet can be made with naturally occurring animal and plant fibers.
Bio-Floor is a carpet line that produces no health concerns.
This means no HEADACHES, SNEEZING, COUGHING, ALLERGIC REACTIONS, or NEUROLOGICAL DISTRESS. (All of which can occur with mainstream “plastic” carpet—and that’s everything that is typically sold is the U.S.A.)
Natural wool carpeting is the most durable carpet on the market today. IT WILL LAST YOU 20-25 years!
When time is up (after 25 years), you can put Bio-Floor carpeting out in your garden or on your lawn and it will biodegrade!
You can relax when your babies, children, pets, and family members actually lie on your carpet. You are now free to actually ENJOY your carpet with no haunting feelings attached.
Not surprisingly, 90% of the UK uses wool carpeting in their homes. Do you know what percentage of American homes are using wool carpeting? About 2%.
Why is this so? $$ MONEY$$, of course!
Synthetic carpeting is cheaper to make and to buy, so we sacrifice our health to save a buck. (Just like we do in so many other ways.)
NIGHTMARES OF MAINSTREAM CARPET DYEING:
Along with the materials used in synthetic carpet, the dyeing techniques that are employed in the mainstream carpeting industry leave behind caustic chemical residues.
Most all residential carpets today are post-dyed, a process in which aggressive detergents are used.
Along with that, the carpet fibers are sometimes chemically treated so that when placed in a dye bath, different fibers will react differently to the dye. This is what creates different shades of the same color of synthetic fibers.
Carpet patterns are produced using screen-printing, roller equipment, jet spray and ink jet printers. These chemicals end up as part of the carpet, and can wreck havoc on the individuals and pets living within your home. Remember—if it’s not natural, you don’t want it in your home!
HOW BIO-FLOOR CARPETING IS DIFFERENT:
NO DYES! What you see AND what you get is natural, healthy, pure wool.
Bio-Floor Carpeting has color options that vary for one reason—the color of the sheep is different.
Just as you have a specific color of hair, so do sheep. This allows for the creation of natural, unique color combinations based on particular breeds.
Biofloor is able to take these colored fleeces and blend them together, achieving beautiful color variations.
The difference in the four different lines—Dolomite, Pyrenees, McKinley, and Rainier—is the pile height and wool weight.
The quality of the wool used and the color blends do not change throughout the styles.
Pile height measures the thickness of the carpet from the primary backing to the ends of the fibers—essentially, the thickness of the carpet.
The pile height coincides with the weight of the carpet. The thicker (and greater the pile height), the heavier it will be.
A FEW THINGS TO NOTE:
The Pyrenees line is the only line offering the Wheat color and subtle line pattern.
The pile height and weight of the McKinley and the Rainier lines are the same. The difference between the two is this: An extra step is taken in the process of making the Rainier.
That extra step is called “random tip sheer” in which some of the wool fiber loops are cut and some are left uncut. This gives a fuller look to the carpet, which can be appealing in a room you may wish to have a more “formal” appearance.
The piles heights and wool weights of the four lines are as follows:
Dolomite: 6/32 and 30 oz.
Pyrenees: 8/32 and 38 oz.
McKinley: 12/32 and 44 oz.
Rainier: 12/32 and 44 oz.
First, the wool supplied for Earth Weave Carpeting is
1) Washed with natural spring or well water at the site of the shearing.
2) Then, a non-toxic lubricant is added for spinning the wool.
Once the wool arrives at Earth Weave Carpet Mills, the raw wool is used—and nothing else—to create Bio-Floor carpeting. To do this:
1) The wool fibers are actually stitched/tufted into a hemp and cotton backing.
2) Then, this hemp/cotton backing is glued to a secondary JUTE backing using a natural, non-toxic, and bio-degradable glue made from the RUBBER TREE. The wool fibers have now been secured in place.
Carpet backing is traditionally made of the same thing your carpet fibers are made from—PLASTIC! And, it’s held to the synthetic carpet fibers by toxic glue (this is typically where the formaldehyde source comes from.)
Refreshingly, Earth Weave makes it’s backing out of 100% natural materials, just like its carpet.
There are just 4 ingredients are used:
Don’t go through all the trouble of buying natural carpeting only to place a synthetic pad underneath it.
Earth Weave’s Enertia wool based carpet padding is a blend of coarse, naturally pigmented wools that are mechanically needled (not glued) into a cotton scrim. The padding is free from dyes, fire retardant, glues, moth proofing or adhesives.
Color will vary from charcoal brown to tan, depending upon fiber availability. Some vegetable matter may be present. Average thickness is 7/16 inch, and the average weight is 40 oz/sq. yd.
Individuals who have sensitivity to animal fibers should obtain a sample before ordering.
This 100% natural wool padding will provide many years of service before needing to be replaced (much longer than its synthetic counterpart).
After use, this padding can be recycled into your garden where it will safely biodegrade while serving as an effective weed barrier and mulch. Over a period of 2-3 seasons the padding will completely disappear, adding nitrogen and other nutrients plants need to the soil, essentially returning to grass.
You can also line your wire plant pots with this as well. (This padding can even be used as a insulation in the walls of yurts!)
Earth Weave uses British Wool due to its excellent crimp and fiber characteristics. The breeds of sheep are the finest available. The sheep are raised in a free range environment and are outside in all types of weather; both harsh and pleasant. This atmosphere creates healthier sheep and higher quality wool.
Thedynamic environment the sheep live inalso causes them to grow a very hardy fleece, which in turn allows Earth Weave to create some very durable carpeting.
British wool is more consistent in color, offers a greater color selection, and is good for use without dye. (Most New Zealand wool is white, and requires dyeing before use. Most U.S. sheep are unfortunately not carpet grade sheep.)
Your Bio-Floor wool carpeting can be installed just like any other wall-to-wall, pull and stretch carpet. Yes, it can be used safely on stairs.
It also works for light traffic commercial areas.
Seams can be sewn (about 10% of people decide to do this) or taped.
We recommend Chapco tape because they have no-VOC options for the chemically sensitive, but you can also check and see if your installer has available materials that are no-VOC as well
BIO-FLOOR WOOL CARPET WILL STAY CLEANER THAN OTHER CARPETS.
How? Did you know that wool carpeting under a microscope looks much like the skin of a snake? From very close up, the carpet actually has microscopic scales.
Why is this good? Because this “scaly like” quality actually creates a barrier between the dust floating around in the air and the internal parts of the carpet.
Unlike mainstream carpets which soak dirt and grime into the very base of the carpet,
Bio-Floor has a natural barrier that the dirt can rest upon and then easily by vacuumed away. This prevents dirt and grime from getting deep into the carpet fibers.
That being said, regular vacuuming is necessary and highly recommended. Just like with any carpeting material; wool carpeting lasts longer when it doesn’t have the extra abrasion of dirt and particulate on it when people walk around.
As with all quality natural fiber carpets, vacuuming with a suction only vacuum cleaner is recommended. Beater bar vacuum cleaners may damage the surface pile of the product.
The wool carpeting does not take well in particular to a few styles of “beater bar” vacuums. (The beater bar is the moving part under the vacuum base that turns around and around just inside your vacuum to “rough up” dirt.)
If you must use a beater bar vacuum, the best thing to do is vacuum a little inconspicuous patch for a few weeks using your beater bar turned on, (around 10 vacuuming sessions) and see what happens. If you see any obvious “fuzziness,” turn off the beater bar on your vacuum and use the suction only. Or, use a vacuum that does not have a beater bar altogether.
To clean up spills, NEVER SCRUB, always BLOT.
We recommend HOST CARPET CLEANING PRODUCTS or CLUB SODA (test an inconspicuous patch first) for stains.
And if you have dirt or grime or smelly stuff on your carpet, sprinkle on BAKING SODA, let it sit, and then vacuum it up. Usually, that always works well too.
To deep clean, we recommend HOST CARPET CLEANING PRODUCTS .
If you have a carpet cleaner coming into your home, make sure he/she has worked with wool carpeting before.
And, of course, make certain that they are not using CHEMICALS when they clean your ALL-NATURAL carpet!
Do not be concerned when your wool carpeting sheds right at first. This is normal!
This shedding from wool carpeting is because of wool’s short “staple” fibers. Wool does not have a continuous filament fibers (meaning the fibers are very, very long) like a fiber such as silk does.
So, when you first get your carpet, yes, there will be some “shedding” involved.
Do not be alarmed when you see it the wool in your vacuum, and know that usually within 3-4 weeks of carpet usage, the shedding will subside.

Your carpet should NOT be ordered based just on the square footage of your space.
Depending on what your rooms may look like, there is an overage amount you need to account for. This can be anywhere from 5-15% based on where the seams need to be placed in your room/s.
These seaming and yardage calculations are made based on the room’s shape, size, window placement, and lighting. This number MUST BE CALCULATED BY YOUR PROFESSIONAL INSTALLER to guarantee you have ordered the correct amount of carpet.
Simply have a professional carpet installer come and look at your space, take measurements and give you a number of square yards needed to carpet your area. AGAIN, THE PROFESSIONAL INSTALLING THE CARPET NEEDS TO DECIDE HOW MUCH CARPET TO ORDER! Please refer to your professional installer BEFORE you order.
**Along with providing the square yardage, knowing the linear feet ensures that we get your order correct. Having both numbers is a way we have to “double check” your order. Please have your installer supply both numbers for us.
