Cut pile plush carpet is constructed with a slight twist in the yarn so the pile stands upright providing a smooth 'velvet-like' surface. This creates a carpet with a very soft, luxurious finish. Plush pile carpet has a tendency to display temporary shading from footprints and vacuuming. Permanent pile reversal is a consideration.
Cut pile hard twist carpet is the most popular style sold in the New Zealand market. Constructed with a high twisted yarn causing the pile to lie in different directions, cut pile hard twist carpets offer a textured appearance and luxurious feel underfoot. This style of carpet is less likely to show traces of footprints and vacuuming within the pile when compared to a plush cut pile carpet. Permanent pile reversal is a consideration.
Cut and loop pile carpet is constructed with a combination of both cut and loop tufts giving a textured appearance. Cut and loop pile carpets have a stylish finish with a soft, smooth feel. This style of carpet has a tendency to display temporary shading from footprints and vacuuming. Permanent pile reversal is a consideration.
Frieze/shag pile carpets are constructed with long cut pile tufts that lie in different directions, providing a deep texture and shaggy appearance. This carpet style provides texture and a sensual and luxurious feel.
A looped carpet is formed when the yarn is threaded through the backing then sewn back through creating a loop of yarn. There are several types of loop pile carpets including level loops, sisals, textured loops and multi-level loops. Each type of looped carpet creates a distinct look in the home. Pattern match, seams, bowing and skewing are considerations.
