Cut Pile Carpet

When shopping for carpets, you might find yourself confused by all the different styles and carpet jargon. Don’t worry – we’re here to help! Cut pile is simply an industry term that describes a certain style of construction; one where the pile is sheared at the top for added softness. You can think of it as a finishing technique. This is because there are lots of types of cut pile carpet, from velvety soft, dense varieties to the more hardwearing twist styles. The one thing they all have in common is that the fibres are cut rather than looped into the backing. 

Cut pile is definitely the way to go if you’re looking for a lovely soft finish, and does especially well in the living room and bedrooms. You can also find durable cut pile carpets suitable for the hall landing and stairs – look for mixed wool blends or a twist style, where the yarns have been tightly wound for extra resilience. As soft and springy as a freshly cut lawn, our range of cut pile carpet provides a mix of different constructions and colours, helping you find the one most suitable for your lifestyle.
