DALTON, GA, March 5, 2008—Karastan springs into fashion with a breathtaking array of carpets that emphasize the textural beauty and natural luxury of New Zealand wool.

Included in the introductions are:

  • Woolcraft.  A combination of large and small loops gives Karastan’s Woolcraft its wonderful nubby texture. The tactile weave is complemented by ruggedly handsome, heathered yarns which come in 6 earth-friendly colorways.  Sure to impress, Woolcraft blends performance with great style to enhance any area of the home.
  • Woolcheck Classics. Warm and inviting, Woolcheck Classics delivers the very best in woven construction. Its field of closely stepped, heathered wool yarns creates a subtle pattern that evokes a serene mood. Fourteen fresh colorations, inspired by today’s fashion trends, provide casual—yet elegant—decorating options.
  • Tristan. This “West Coast Casual” is woven of worsted wool in a tailored and sophisticated style. Tristan is colored in a trio of textured loops that are randomly patterned in a subtle stria. The look pairs beautifully with a multitude of carpet and rug styles, in addition to hard surfaces.  A flattering selection of 9 colorways makes Tristan an irresistible favorite.  
  • Ardington. Complex, sophisticated, yet understated—Ardington expands Karastan’s woven offerings in wonderfully versatile ways. It has a two-color, textured cut-and-loop weave that works wonderfully in both contemporary and traditional décors. Its worsted wool weave and subtle stria effect contribute to its high-end appeal.
