Persian Wool Widely Used For Soft, Durable
Persian & Oriental Rugs
Persian rug wool is the best and most widely used
rug-making material. It is soft, durable and easy to work. However, the
quality varies considerably and not all wool is suitable for rug making.
Good Persian rug wool needs to combine softness with strength and
springiness, or the rug wears out quickly and fails to return to its
original shape if creased or depressed. Only certain types of wool possess
the qualities required; the best comes from lambs between 8 and 14 months
old, particularly those from colder high regions. Some wool Persian rugs
are prefixed by the word "Kurd" which indicates that the rug was made from
wool taken from the flanks and shoulders (where the fibers are the
longest) of lambs reared in the winter and clipped in the spring. Kurd
wool is generally considered to be among the very best available.
