Twist / Frieze Carpet – (Shag) Nuovo Rose by Godfrey Hirst

When shopping for carpet you want to insure that you make an educated decision about the appropriate type for your home or office. Therefore understanding a few basic carpet construction terms will help you to determine what type of carpet is best for your home and lifestyle.

Frieze carpet which is pronounced “free-zay” is a cut pile carpet that consists of twisted yarns that gives the carpet a fuzzy or shaggy appearance. The pile has a curly textured surface because the yarns are longer in length and twisted tightly. Also known as “shag,” it has an informal look and is a great choice for modern or contemporary home decor and furnishings.
