Keeps Your Toes From Friez-ing
One of the most popular types of casual carpet, frieze is a toned-down variation of the more traditional shag carpeting. It is composed of strongly twisted fibers that stand-up better than their shag cousins, lessening the appearance of footprints and dirt. There’s more to it than just great style:
Beautiful finish – The unique appearance of twist carpet is one of its chief selling points. The cut and twisted fibers are resilient in maintaining their shape. The result is a carpet that always looks like new and that can be cleaned easily and efficiently by simple vacuuming.
Enhanced durability – Frieze carpet is characterized by the tight twist – up to five per inch – in each individual fiber, hence its more commonly known name. These twists enable the carpet to “bounce back” after being walked, vacuumed or otherwise crushed from its original shape. This fact means that twist style carpet can better withstand the ordeals of high-traffic and repeated use far better than other types of cut-pile carpet.
Warmth of feel – The insulating feature of frieze carpet is well established. In short, its high quality construction leads to a very dense carpet that can have between eight and ten strands every linear inch. The resultant weave acts as an insulator against the exterior temperature, deadens sound and provides a superior feel when one walks across it – in shoes as well as barefoot.
