Many people associate shag carpet with being outdated, but there’s much more to shag carpet today! Advances in technology, manufacturing processes, and styling have allowed for shag carpet to return as a fashion-forward choice that’s also practical and soft under foot.
What is Shag Carpet?
The word “shag” is typically used to describe deep pile carpets. Most carpets, including shag, are made from loops of fibers. The height of these loops is called the pile. Longer piles tend to obscure vacuum tracks and offer a more casual and stylish look.
Shag carpeting is most commonly made from nylon, acrylic, olefin, polyester, or wool. Each fiber has unique properties that affect the way your carpeting looks and feels. Carpeting made from olefin, for example, tends to be a bit more tough-wearing, while nylon provides added softness which is perfect for bedrooms.
