Carpets offer a warm, luxurious feel to your home with many different styles and textures to choose from.
Here are descriptions of the standard types to help you find the style which best suits the rooms in your home:-
Twist Pile - A twist pile carpet is made from yarn that has been tightly twisted and set to form a pile with a slightly textured surface. Twist piles are produced in both plain and heather colours (Heathers are created using a combination of complementary coloured fibres to obtain a tonal effect).
Loop Pile - In a loop pile carpet the yarn forms loops on the surface of the carpet, either in uniform height, creating a level loop pile, or with differing heights creating a textured loop pile. Wool loops are a popular alternative to coir and sisal floors because they have the added comfort, warmth and durability of natural wool.
Saxony - Saxony carpets are longer dense pile carpets made to create a luxurious deep pile effect. Available in both wool and man-made fibres.
Velvet - Also known as ‘velour’ carpet these close cut pile carpets have a soft smooth finish.
