The most iconic pile in carpet is the Saxony cut pile. Straight up and down strands create a surface that is plush and fuzzy. Vacuums and feet tend to crush this type of pile and leave impressions on the surface. Saxony cut pile is susceptible to stains and wear and tear. This type or carpet should be used only in low traffic areas.
This style does not show marks like footprints as easily as carpets with Saxony cut pile. It is often referred to as ‘trackless.’ The texture is accomplished by twisting individual yarns into spirals and setting them with steam heat. Light is not as easily reflected from spiral strands as straight ones. Strands of textured carpet, crushed by heavy objects, are not as noticeable as Saxony pile. Mid and high-traffic areas are suitable for textured cut carpet pile.
