A velvet pile carpet is essentially a tufted product that is double, or triple sheared to give a very clean, smooth finish. The tufts are not twisted, but simply come straight up from the base
As with a Twist pile, a high percentage of wool in the tufts will ensure a soft feel, as well as giving a high degree of bouncebackability to prevent flattening in high traffic areas.
Again, similarly to a Twist pile, a 100% Man made velvet will be more cost-efficient, and easy to clean. Many of our velvet products are bleach-cleanable, ensuring it stays looking like new for a long time.
A velvet pile carpet has a very smooth finish and appearance, something that many people hanker for. It will feel softer underfoot than a twist as well.
Regular vacuuming is vital with a velvet pile carpet, as pile reversal can occur if this does not happen. By continually resetting the pile you will help ensure the carpet keeps it's surface appearance for it's life time.
Because a velvet pile carpet will show every mark, it is vital that it is fitted correctly, with the pile direction aligned, and at the correct tension. This will ensure a long life and appearance retention.
