Question

Do you know where I can buy a wool rug that is not treated with any flame retardants?

Asked by Lucia

I would like to buy wool rugs for my house but most of them are treated with flame retardant chemicals. Sometimes the sellers do not have this information. I prefer to stay without rugs at all rather than having rugs with unnecessary chemicals in it. Thanks so much for your help.

Their site does not mention the use of flame retardants in the product, however I have ordered a wool rug from Natural Area Rugs for my own home just before our baby was born.

We have had the rug for almost 8 years now, and with two kids playing and spilling, it has held up very well with no visible stains or wear spots.
