Twist carpet – Wool or man-made
80% Wool Twist – This has the softness of wool combined with the strength of nylon creating a perfect carpet yarn. Available in different weights to suit all areas of the home.
Be aware that wool is a protein and makes excellent nutrition for moths, so if you live in an area that is prone to moth infestation then look for carpets that have inbuilt moth protection in the manufacturing process or consider man-made carpets.
Man-Made Twists or Loops – Manufacturing technology has drastically improved over the past 20 years and now most man-made Twists are guaranteed to be stain resistant ( even bleach cleanable ). Nylon fibres included in the manufacturing process resist flattening and new fibres are rivalling the softness of wool, making it generally a cheaper option.
Saxony Carpets – This carpet has an elegant appearance, achieved by the carpet been woven into loops which are then sheared off leaving a carpet with an even tufted surface, with a long pile and a plush feel. It can be prone to indentation marks.
Velvets – Straighter than twisted yarn , with cut ends at the top giving a soft velvety surface. Very elegant but can show pile reversal and footmarks.
Berber – Traditional berbers were made from natural colour wools but nowadays they can be manufactured in different colourways, and can give a heather homespun appearance and a textured feel.
Naturals – Creating cool contemporary floorcoverings for all areas of the home, inspiring and creative.
Coir – Originates from Indian Coconut husk fibres softened in sea water
Jute – Hand harvested from tillaceae plant
Seabrass – Originates from the coastal meadows on the banks of Vietnamese rivers
Sisal – Grown in plantations in the Caribbean, Brazil and Africa
Woven – A traditional process where the pile and backing yarns are woven together. Both Wilton and Axmister Carpets are woven
