Frieze is a highly twisted cut pile carpet suited for high traffic areas because of its durability. It has short fibers that tend to curl in different directions at the surface to hide footprints and vacuum marks, it also holds up well under heavy traffic.
Textured carpet can be used in both formal and informal settings. The soft feel of textured carpet is a great addition to family rooms and bedrooms. The textured carpet pattern is created out of a single color by giving some of the tufts added twist, causing them to curl back on themselves in random directions. Textured carpet has a multi-colored look that helps disguise footprints and other tracks.
In this cut pile, the yarns are slightly twisted, creating a "grass type look". The individual yarn strands are longer and spaced further apart as opposed to the Saxony, Textured and Frieze Cut Pile Styles. Shag carpets are great to use in a casual family room.
Cable carpets use well-twisted, heavier yarns and are good for medium traffic areas. While able to offer cutting-edge style, cable carpets are a great complement for the causal room where comfort and warmth are essential.
Plush carpet has a luxurious look and an even cut pile with a velvet feel, adding beauty to any room. The luxurious appearance makes plush carpet ideal for formal areas.
Level loop carpet is created by weaving even loops of yarn into the carpet backing at both ends. Because of its strong loops, the level loop carpet is very track resistant. Higher level loops create a more luxurious appearance.
The short, densely packed loops are easy to clean and prevent dirt from filtering into the carpet. Level loop carpet is long-lasting and is ideal for high traffic areas.
A low loop pile is much more resistant to crushing than a cut pile, and they provide excellent performance at a very modest price.
Patterned loop carpets have a high pile loop and a shorter low pile loop forming a distinctive pattern or design. Generally these carpets are made in two or more tones which are great for showing less soil and footprints.
Cut and Loop
Cut and loop carpets offer the visual appeal of texture and pattern as well as high durability. Many of these styles are on the cutting edge of fashion today. Cut and loop carpeting is created by tufting some loops higher than others. When the carpet is sheared, the higher loop tufts are cut, but the lower ones are not. The resulting cut pile tufts look darker than the loops, creating a pattern.
