Semi Worsted Wool and Cotton (80% +20%)
This variety of carpets is made of 80% semi worsted wool, explained further below and 20% cotton.
Worsted wool comes from sheep with really long wool : generally sheep that live in fairly easily accessible, lush, green pastures. The long wool from worsted-type sheep is arranged, either by gilling (pulling through holes) combing with metal combs, or as part of the spinning process, so that the fibres lie parallel and end to end. The semi-worsted variety of fabric, has yarns that are spun tightly, but not combed.
Because worsted wool is made from long fibres which all lie parallel, the natural crimp of the wool is removed, and the forms a very tight, hard yarn when spun, with little space between the fibres.
