Our Latest Introduction - Shenandoah
Viewed from the air, the Blue Ridge Mountains present a ribbed appearance of numerous parallel mountain ranges separated by wide, straight valleys; one of them is the Shenandoah Valley. This unique piece of geography is unlike any other in the United States and is the inspiration behind our latest broadloom introduction, Shenandoah.

Like its namesake, our Shenandoah also presents a ribbed appearance by the placement of one high row and two low rows that result in a texture that's unlike anything currently available here. It has a casual, comfortable, homespun appearance with just enough texture to create interest on the floor without dominating a design theme.

Manufactured using 100% pure New Zealand wool, Shenandoah is available in five heather color-ways from white to rich brown and gray. It was included on our price list of March 21st and is available now. You can expect a preview in the very near future.

Flammability And Wool

If you've ever visited the industry trade show, Surfaces, in Las Vegas Nevada, you may have had the opportunity to walk through a casino (only to get to the show of course). You may have also noticed the three top activities therein are gambling, drinking, and smoking; all being enjoyed to the extreme. Which is the main reason casinos make these facilities as fire safe as possible and is the main reason why every one of them uses 100% pure wool carpet.  

 

Why is that you may ask?  

 

Because pure wool is the most "fire safe" fiber of any fiber used in interior finishing and in Las Vegas, lit cigarettes are dropped, thrown, stomped out and any number of other things other than properly extinguished. Hey, you can't be tidy when you're on a roll. Aside from that, wool carpet is regularly specified for installations with the most stringent flammability regulations, such as passenger aircraft.

 

Wool's flame-resistant qualities include :  

  • Naturally flame retardant
  • Difficult to ignite due to requiring a much higher ignition temperature Low flame-spread
  • Forms an insulating, cool char and self-extinguishes
  • Contributes less to smoke or toxic gas formation (compared to synthetic fibers).

 

So while very few of us are throwing lit cigarettes about in the house, accidents do happen such as a tipped candle or an ember from the fireplace. So the peace of mind realized from a 'fire-safe' investment in 100% pure wool is truly worthwhile.
