The Softest Natural-Fiber Rug

Whenever you want to decorate your house, the main thing you have in mind is beauty. A room can be beautiful if one makes the correct choices in interior design.

However, another thing to keep in mind is comfort. A comfortable room will appear more beautiful than one with no thought put into it. A rug is a great piece of flooring that will have a high impact on the interior design of your room, whether it’s a living room, dining room, or a bedroom.

Even a smaller one in your bathroom can make a world of difference.

Rugs come in a variety of shapes and sizes, but some are softer than others. If you want to pride your comfort over beauty, then there are some great rugs from you to choose from. Fortunately, these don’t have to be mutually exclusive.

When choosing a soft rug, there’s no better way to go than natural fiber. These rugs will inspire conversation with anyone who sees it—you’ll receive compliments and you can take pride in the beauty of your room.

That begs the question: what natural fiber rug is the softest? Then again, we have to consider what natural fiber is to begin with. Natural fiber rugs comes in different categories:

Jute—a plant that grows as a stalk

Sisal—comes from the Sisalana plant

Seagrass—grown in saltwater marshes, but is typically bound with cotton

Coir—comes from the husk of coconuts

Bamboo—taken from the stalks of bamboo, of course

Mountaingrass—grass grown in the mountains

Cotton—grown from cotton plants

Wool—sheered from sheep

While most of these are plant fibers, wool stands out to be one of the softest natural fibers from an animal. Most of these can be combined with cotton or wool, easily obtaining optimal softness.

Wool is undoubtedly the softest of this group, but out of the plant fibers, jute is a great choice. However, to bring the best make of rugs, you can’t go wrong with a sisal rug that is mixed with wool. It combines the softness of wool with the durability of sisal, making it one of the best choices around.

There are many designs and styles that you can get a sisal wool rug in, but these can be placed in a high-traffic area and still get the proper comfort of a pure-wool rug. It can be put in the living room or the office and make a wonderful addition to its entirety.

Wool rugs are a great choice as well, but they’re not the most durable and are recommended to be put in a low or medium-trafficked area.

While all of these natural-fiber rugs are a wonderful choice, it’s always best to do some research before making a decision. If you want to be environmentally-friendly or want to keep animals in mind, these rugs are the best choice.

Plants can always be regrown, and sheering wool from sheep is actually beneficial to them. Get a sisal or wool rug, or even better, a combination!
