Loop Pile and Cut Pile Carpet

Loop Pile And Cut Pile Carpet Care

loop pileLoop pile carpets are made of individual strands of yarn pulled through the carpet backing twice, creating a small loop. Indeed, loops can be of the same height (level loop pile) or two to three different measurements (multi-level or modulated loop pile) that create a pattern. Moreover, carpets with low-level loop piles are best suited to high-traffic areas and are comparatively easy to maintain. The multi-level loop gives a more textured appearance and is becoming increasingly popular.

Furthermore, a loop pile tends to give a more casual look and is less susceptible to footprint marks and shading (the appearance of irregular light and dark areas) than cut-pile carpets.

Popular Loop Styles

  • Indeed, the Berber carpets, which have thick yarns, are tufted into chunky loop tufts, usually in earthy tones with a ‘flecked’ appearance – excellent for hiding stains.
  • Even though Sisal-style/cord carpets have tighter loops than Berbers, they create a stiffer feel. Then, the loop lines can be either the same or alternating heights. These carpets are suitable for high-traffic areas.

Loop Pile – Cut Pile Carpet 

Precisely, cut the loops at the top in cut pile carpets, leaving yarn tufts standing straight up. After that, the cut pile has a more luxurious, formal look than the loop pile.

Popular cut styles include:

  • First, Velvet/ Plush carpets are smooth, soft and elegant. Thus, to create a velvety sheen, cut the loops several times. However, this also shows every footprint, so it is the best in a formal area.
  • Next, Saxony carpets are similar to velvet but could be smoother.
  • Lastly, twist carpets have tightly twisted fibres that curl slightly at the pile surface. So, they hide footprints and vacuum marks, making them suitable for high-traffic areas.

Combination Of Cut And Loop Pile

Subsequently, these carpets combine cut and looped yarns and can create sculptured effects such as squares, swirls, etc.

This effect is good for hiding dirt and footprints.
