With over 50 years of experience, Loomah are at the forefront of the design and supply of traditional and contemporary luxury bespoke carpets and rugs.
Loomah have such a diverse range of products and designs available and with endless possibilities in colour, material and texture, we understand the process of commissioning a custom made carpet or rug can be overwhelming. In a series of blog posts, we are exploring the myriad materials and techniques available and their unique properties to help you create a bespoke carpet or rug that is truly unique to you.
In today’s post we are discussing 50/50 wool/silk spun. Loomah use only the finest and most luxurious yarns in the manufacture of our bespoke carpets and rugs. Our 50/50 wool/silk spun quality is a firm favourite amongst the Loomah team.
“[50/50 wool/silk spun] combines the lustre and softness of silk with the durability of wool.”
50/50 wool/silk spun is a combination of wool yarn and silk yarn that has been spun together to create a luxurious blend. Sumptuous underfoot and with a subtle sheen, it combines the lustre and softness of silk with the durability of wool.
Our 50/50 wool/silk spun is available as wall to wall carpets or loose laid rugs and suitable for luxury residential use. A popular choice for living areas and bedrooms, it is best suited to areas that are not subjected to constant high traffic.
“This is one of my favourite qualities to work with,” says Antonina, designer at Loomah, “blending wool and silk results in a much denser yarn which offers superior definition when working with highly detailed designs.”
To complement our handmade carpets and rugs we also offer a beautiful range of machine made 50/50 wool/silk spun carpets and rugs. Custom made to order, these can be dyed to any colour and supplied to fit any room size and shape in one piece without seams.
