By far the most popular texture of carpet is a twist pile. This is where each individual tuft is twisted round and round, therefore becoming stronger, and more resistant to wear. Because of this design, the carpet will have a slight 'bobbly' appearance on the surface, as the light will reflect off each pile in a slightly different direction. A twist pile carpet is always recommended for areas of heavy wear. Twist pile carpets are also less likely to suffer from pile reversal, although it is still possible under certain circumstances.


Cut pile / Twist
The most popular type of carpet is the cut pile. It is created from yarn which has been tightly twisted together. It mainly comes in plain colours and has a mottled textured appearance. This is a great option for those seeking a general purpose and economical style around the home.



One of our key twist pile suppliers are [Cavalier Carpets]
