Several natural materials used for rug making are super soft.

Wool area rugs contain thick fibers, are well-insulated, and clean up fast after spills. They have a lovely fuzzy feel and are made from sheep wool, which is a typical material for floor coverings. Along with being soft, wool rugs are durable, making them perfect for high-traffic areas of the home. In addition, they will help warm up the floor in places where you choose to walk barefoot. Unfortunately, wool rugs are vulnerable to fading in sunlight.

Cotton area rugs are comfortable on your skin. Cotton also wears out faster than other fabrics. The majority of it is offered in flat-weave patterns. Yet flat-weave is not as soft as handwoven rugs.

Silk adds a lush, smooth touch to carpets. It is soft to the touch, but since the pile height is much lower, it is less comfortable to walk on than wool rugs. It has an attractive appearance and vibrant colors. For extra durability, silk-blend area rugs incorporate viscose or wool. A silk area rug is hypoallergenic, making it an excellent choice for allergy-prone family members. A silk floor covering, just like a silk shirt, is fragile and requires careful maintenance.
