Wool Twist Carpet
The wool twist has always been around and is most definitely older than any of us reading this.
It comes in a wide range of variations:
100% wool | 80% wool 20% man-made | 50% wool 50% man-made
Even the backing of the carpet comes in different variations.
The advantages of a wool carpet is that wool keeps it's appearance retention far better and for far more years than any man-made carpet. It also has a softer feel and finish as compared to a man-made carpet.
The downside to a wool is that as the colour is dyed on and it is prone to fading(especially in the sun)
It's not classed as a stain-resistant carpet due to the fact that any chemicals you use to attack the stain will also attack the colour.
If you want a carpet to stand the test of time then wool is your best option. Although it can be a lot more expensive as well.
