  • Saxony –  are made from two or more fibers twisted collectively in a yarn. The twisted piles are subsequently heatset to be straight. These display every footprint and vacuum-cleaner mark once you move across them. Additionally, there are textured saxonies that feature a multi-colored look to cover these marks.
  • Velvet/Plush – are lightly twisted to keep up a single, uniform color. They are more level as compared to textures but also show every footprint and vacuum-cleaner mark whenever you move across them.
