Frieze Carpet Review: Pros and Cons
Frieze carpeting is a very popular style of carpet, characterized by long fibers with a high twist, in which relatively long pile fibers are twisted three to five times under steam conditions. The twisting is so tight that the fibers actually begin to curl back upon themselves, making for a very dense texture that performs well under heavy traffic. It is essentially the modern version of the old shag carpet from the 1960s and 1970s, but fortunately, it is evolved since. If you have memories of your parents or grandparents raking their shag carpet to reverse the matting that occurred with the long shag fibers, fear not—today's frieze carpets are durable and stylish enough for a relatively informal setting, and they don't compress and flatten as old shag carpets did.
