carpet fibre. Properties include excellent appearance retention so wool
carpets spring back into shape, good resistance to soiling, low
flammability and wool is easy to clean too.
Wool is resistant to
cold water based stains and has a low lustre appearance, which means the
colours are always deep and rich. For added strength and durability and to
reduce shedding, wool is often blended with a synthetic fibre like
polyamide or polyester, you may often find a blend of 80% wool and 20% man
made fibres, resulting in a luxury carpet fit for any home.
The most popular artificial carpet
fibre. Polypropylene is resistant to stains because the colour is locked
in during the manufacturing process. It can be cleaned using a part bleach
cleaning solution making it an extremely practical choice for today’s
modern families. Polypropylene is not only hard wearing but it’s also fade
resistant and much lower in price making it fantastic value for money.
Durable and resilient, Polyamide
carpets can have vibrant colours, exciting patterns and bold designs.
Polyamide retains both its looks and style much longer than other
synthetic fibres and is also the hardest wearing synthetic fibre.
Most like wool in appearance and feel. With
an attractive, lustrous look, it’s more commonly used as a blend rather
than on its own and is a well performing fibre that’s easily cleaned.
TYPES OF PILE
pile carpets are created from yarn which has been twisted tightly
together. Twists come in plain colours, and a ‘heather' look, which is
made by combining yarns of complimentary shades. Ideal for any room in the
home, twists come in the widest variety of fibres, colours, shades and
Carpets with a velvet pile
have a very smooth, elegant cut pile finish. This type of carpet is
extremely low maintenance as the pile is usually quite short, but very
dense. Adding a little luxury to any location, velvet offers a solid
colour to the carpet and a great feel.
Increasingly popular again since its heyday in the seventies, this
extremely luxurious carpet is made the same way as a cut pile but with
extra long tufts for that super shaggy look.
Looped pile or Berber carpet is extremely durable and practical and
excellent at maintaining its appearance. Not only does it hide footprints
well, but it also offers texture to a plain carpet. The yarn used in
making looped pile is quite heavy and wide, and the loops can be made at
either a uniform height, or even different heights, to form a textured
Dense and luxurious, Saxony is a
cut pile carpet made with longer tufts for a very soft feel that’s smooth
to the touch. Saxony is composed of twisted, cut pile tufts that have a
uniform appearance. The soft and dense nature of this carpet can show
footprints so we don’t recommended it for high traffic areas although it’s
perfect for bedrooms.
Cut and Loop
This type of
carpet is made with both cut pile and loop pile areas to give a textured
interlocking warp (vertical) and weft (horizontal) threads. The pile is
looped but with no height, giving the impression that the pile is flat.
This means, whilst feeling quite firm underfoot, it doesn’t show signs of
flattening or shading.
carpet is machine woven, with individual yarn being woven with the weft.
Axminster carpets are known for their quality and durability. Most popular
is a velvet look, however more recently manufacturers are using twisted
yarn to reduce the effect of shading.
Wilton carpet is a high quality, woven carpet noted for having up to five
colours per pattern. Wilton carpets are available in many patterns and
they can have a looped (uncut) or cut pile.
