Loop vs twist? Aaargh! Drowning! I would like a stripy carpet for my stairs and landing and found a nice 80/20 twist for £2k...an equally nice 100% wool loop comes in at £750...I like them both equally, actually, the cheaper is more attractive...Will they really wear that differently? Any experience? Our current carpet is 80/20 twist, cream and not bad 11 yrs in.
I bought a 100/ wool carpet 3 years ago and I wouldn't recommend it. It really hasn't lasted even though it has been well looked-after. Certain soles on slippers will cause 'bobbling' and you'll be picking up stray bits of wool off it forever. It also seems to absorb stains somehow. I'd say go for a mix.
Thank you. Was afraid that would be the answer! Sickening to pay more than double but it is what it is! The problem we have that there is a turn over 4 stairs so needs to be a thin stripe to subtly match...was really hoping for 'the cheaper one will be grand...' Pah!!!
