Wool Fiber Protection

Wool Fiber Protection

Lanolin or wool grease is what gives wool a natural repellency towards water and some stains. After wool has been sheared graded and sorted the wool is scoured. Scouring the raw wool removes suint, vegetable matter, sheep marking fluids, urine, excredia, sand ointment and most of the wool grease. Wool grease left after the scouring/cleaning process is called lanolin.

Only .5% of lanolin resides in the wool fibers after processing. While lanolin is one of nature’s best repellency coating it does degrade after years of foot traffic, vacuuming, cleaning, spotting and UV light.

  • At Steam Sweepers Rug Cleaning, we also have the expertise to help you protect your wool fiber. We have products formulated specifically for wool fibers that have lost or degraded natural repellency.
  • Our product provides an invisible barrier between spills and wool fibers giving you a window of opportunity to blot a spill before permanent damage is done.
