Ken's Quick Answer:

Hardy UK weather leads to a more durable product that stands up to years of foot traffic. In fact the right wool carpet can last you 20-30 years if properly cared for.

Ken's In-Depth Answer:

Some of the finest carpet in the world is made with New Zealand wool and you see that trademark everywhere. But, I don't want to slight our friends in Great Britain. I was interested to see that Concord Imports—an important importer in the Northeast—sent me a document about British wool. I wanted to share some of that information with you today.

It says "British wool is renowned for its superior bulk compared to New Zealand wool, a quality that directly translates into carpets that not only last longer but also maintain their aesthetic appeal after years of foot traffic. This enhanced bulkiness is attributed to the hardy conditions and climate of the UK, where the sheep are raised. This makes British wool an ideal choice for anyone looking for carpets that combine longevity with timeless beauty."

I'm not dissing New Zealand wool, but if durability and performance are on your mind, don't forget British wool!
