Frieze carpet, which some people still call shag carpet, is a style of cut pile carpet that has a high twist level. Its long, soft strands and stylish look make frieze a popular carpet choice for homes in West Palm Beach.
The yarn in frieze carpets tends to fold over on itself, so it’s unlikely to show vacuum tracks, footprints, and dirt. Because of this, frieze carpet is a low-maintenance choice popular for high-traffic areas such as hallways, living rooms, and bedrooms.
Frieze carpets can be comprised of a variety of fibers, including nylon and acrylic. They are made by knotting pile through a stiff backing and then cutting it so that all fibers are the same length. (A heavy-weight frieze carpet with slightly less twist is called a cable carpet.)
