DALTON, GA, February 7, 2011—Karastan’s 2011 woven broadloom introductions are all about comfort with new wool and wool blend carpets and decorating versatility with many coordinating products that enable consumers to flow Karastan quality from room to room.

The Comfort of Wool

  • Wool Crochet. Wool Crochet is as comforting as a handmade sweater. Made of soft and durable 100% New Zealand wool, this textured loop and cut carpet has a casual handcrafted charm. It is woven on Kara-Loc looms using three different yarn colors, which creates 10 exciting new tones. Wool Crochet issues a warm welcome in any interior.
  • Pointelle. Pointelle’s refined yet simple pin dot pattern can be used in any room. This cut and loop classic is Kara-Loc woven of fully worsted New Zealand wool for incredibly softness and stamina. Available in 12 colors, Pointelle helps create soothing spaces with its softer hues or conveys a sense of excitement with its bolder shades.

Karastan Kashmere  

  • Lino. Inspired by a classic linen fabric, Lino features a Kara-Loc woven cross hatch pattern. Its upscale casual appearance offers decorating versatility—use it in any décor from modern to traditional or layer it with a beautiful Karastan rug. Lino is crafted of Karastan Kashmere stria nylon. Ten color lines coordinate with Variegato.
