Considering Density

There are many parameters involved in identifying a good oriental rug. The quality of the wool is extremely important. Aesthetics is likewise important, for when investing money into a rug, you want something you really like and can live with for years.

Another criteria for choosing your rug is looking at the density of the wool. The denser the rug, the more the strands of pile will support each other so that wear occurs only at the tips of the yarn. This ensures a uniform degree of wear. Caravan Connection of Newport shows you how to test not only the quality of the wool, but how to determine the rug's density.

Be sure to call or e-mail Caravan Connection of Newport if you have any questions about your Oriental rug or if you are thinking about buying one.
