WHAT IS TWIST CARPET?
What is a twist?
Twist carpets are one of the most popular carpets found in the UK homes.
Cut pile twist is similar to cut pile plush in that the tops of the loops are removed to form an even surface. The use of taut, tightly twisted yarn gives the resultant carpet a crisp, more textured appearance. Signs of footsteps, tracking and shading are minimised by this durable, heavily textured style.
A twist is made from a yarn of fibre that has been tightly twisted.
A two ply twist is a carpet made from two yarns of fibre that have been twisted tightly around each other.
A twist is a more hard wearing rugged carpet, that is excellent for lounges and stairs and landings, high footfall areas.
