Forget about the price of delivering product…. it's going off the charts. We are all feeling that pain.
But here's something I learned today. The price of fuel is driving up the cost of nylon carpets. Today I was pulling carpets for a client. I mentioned that I might want to install nylon in the playroom for budget reason. That's when my sales person mentioned that the price of nylon carpet is skyrocketing.
It used to be that the high-end nylon was a great price conscience alternative to wool. (Wool can get pricey.) Now it seems the expensive nylon is approaching the same price, or sometimes surpassing its wool counterparts.
Why? Nylon carpet is a petroleum product.
So for what is now just a little bit more, why bother with the nylon. Plus it off gasses.
Yet another reason to buy wool.
