Carpet flooring offers the most warmth and softness as well as being the quietest of all the floor coverings. We offer a comprehensive range including Axminsters, Wiltons, Twists and Pure Wool.
Twist pile look includes every fibre from wool to man-mades, and each has its own individual characteristics and advantages. Wool and wool-rich blends are generally acknowledged to be the yardstick. In the right density they are soft yet hardwearing, warm and comfortable to walk on and, as wool does not support combustion, they are generally the safest. Man-made fibres also have specific attributes. Most are exceptionally tough and this allows less fibre to be used without diminishing the wearing potential. The old perception of man-made fibres being more prone to soiling is no longer valid as many of these carpets have added stain and spill protection.
These carpets have a smooth fine finish and give an expensive refined look. One disadvantage of this type of carpet is that they are prone to show ‘shading’ i.e. light and dark patches in main traffic areas. Nearly all are plain colours and most have high wool content.
These are deep pile carpets giving a luxury look and feel, available in manmade and wool yarns.These carpets will show vacuum marks so if you do not like this effect this is not the type of carpet for you.
