Breckenridge
Breckenridge skier 
Can't you just see it now? Breckenridge! Five peaks. Fresh powder and miles of meticulously groomed trails!  Well you can forget about it because it's closed for the season. Let's talk about another Breckenridge. It's our latest broadloom introduction and we like it so much we carpeted the double black-diamond Twin Chutes Trail with it (see photo above)....OK, there's absolutely no truth to that. The photo is a fake. But what is true is our Breckenridge is a magnificent piece of carpet. It's a precision-tufted loop-pile of 100% pure wool. It's presented in five color-ways in a concise, linear pattern and offered at a very attainable price. Look for it soon.

Same Sea Breeze - Fewer Clams

Introduced late last year, Sea Breeze is a product manufactured exclusively for us in New Zealand and we're pleased to announce a fairly significant and permanent price reduction. We'd like to say it was due to changes in the exchange rate. It sounds so much more genteel than what actually happened; cajoling, arm-twisting, and threats of bodily harm. Regardless, this new price, effective immediately, will make an appealing product even more desirable. The price lists recently sent DO NOT reflect this reduction. For new pricing, please contact your Sales Representative or Unique directly.

Pssst...You want some samples?

We often blather on about our swell customer service capabilities and how it's always a great day at Unique Carpets Ltd. Maybe there are times you just want to order individual samples for a customer and don't care to hear how great the day is here in Riverside, California. There is another option. You can order individual samples on-line. Simply visit our website uniquecarpetsltd.com, then click on the product you desire (either by using the icon for various collections or the drop-down menu listing all products alphabetically) then click on the color or colors you desire and there you have it. You'll need to review your requests by clicking the stupid looking shopping cart in the upper right and fill in some basic information. After that, out they go. The day we receive your request is the day your sample order will ship.

Wool Fact
If you haven't stopped reading yet, this just might do the trick.  Here goes...In a seeming paradox, wool can absorb water and repel water simultaneously. Here's how; the outer surface of wool fiber is made up of fatty acid proteins and does not absorb liquid. However, structural features in the fiber's interior, called salt linkages can sop up copious quantities of moisture in vapor form (over 30% of its weight without feeling damp). In short wool hates liquid but loves vapor. If you're still reading, we're very proud of you!!
