The Cumbrian Twist is a hard-wearing and durable wool twist carpet made from 100% undyed British wool. Unusually for twist carpets which are normally made from 20% man-made plastic fibres, the twist pile of the Cumbrian Twist is made from 100% wool giving a soft and durable finish without the usual plastic content in this style of carpet.
The wool in the Cumbrian Twist is sourced predominately from Herdwick sheep from the Lake District. The Herdwick breed is renowned for producing an excellent quality wool that is perfect for carpet making. Offering a tough, durable product with low environmental impact.
The range of natural shades comes from the skilled blending of different batches of wool to give the perfect palette of natural colour options without the use of chemical dyes.
Our manufacturer uses a lightweight polypropylene backing for this carpet which provides a high degree of strength and stability without the environmental impact of traditional carpet backing.
