Sometimes, you need a workhorse of a carpet. Whether you have pets, a big family, lots of high-traffic areas or other factors that necessitate durable flooring, you can still enjoy the softness and warmth of a carpet in your home. Frieze carpeting is an attractive choice that can handle most households.
What Is Frieze Carpet?
Frieze is a cut pile carpet where the fibers are cut so they are no longer attached to the backing in loops. The pile effect in this carpet offers a tufted or uneven look but unlike other cut pile carpets, frieze styles include very twisted and curly carpet fibers. Most frieze carpets are constructed loosely for a relaxed look.
This carpet can be made from polyethylene terephthalate (PET), wool or nylon with fibers that are most often less than one-quarter of an inch in length. Frieze is sometimes marketed as having three to nine twists twist per inch. The higher the twists per inch, the more durable the carpet and the more curly the appearance of the fibers.
Benefits of Frieze Carpeting
Since the frieze carpet has fibers that are so twisted, it does not show vacuum marks, marks from furniture or footprints the way some plush carpets can. The twisted strands also create an attractive, relaxed appearance. Textured fibers also do not show dirt well, so your carpet ends up looking cleaner in between vacuums.
One of the reasons frieze is so popular is because it is durable and requires little maintenance. The tightly twisted fibers cause this carpet to stand up well even in high traffic areas, making it last longer than many texture carpets. At the same time, frieze tends to be softer than many other carpets that are known for durability.
Frieze is also quite customizable. They come in an array of colors, and you can choose longer fiber lengths for a more casual shaggy look or shorter for easier cleaning.
