Twist pile carpet

These are undoubtedly the most popular style of carpet in the UK at present and Direct Carpet Co have a massive choice of “twists”. Twist pile carpet is usually manufactured from 80% wool and 20% synthetic or 100% synthetic. Which is right for you? It depends on your budget.

The best twist pile carpet is made from 80% British or New Zealand Wool and 20% Nylon. These however, will be the more expensive carpets. Probably the most popular type of twist is manufactured from 100% polypropylene. These will not wear as well as a good quality wool twist, though they are easy to clean.

However a good quality polypropylene carpet will perform better than a cheap 80/20 Carpet. Many cheap 80/20s are made from recycled wool, another way of saying second hand! At Direct Carpet Co we’ll be happy to advise you on the best carpet for you.
