There are a number of yarns (or fibres) used when producing carpet. The main three are wool, polypropylene and polyamide. All three have their pros and cons. AWs have created iSense, a polyamide (aka nylon) yarn of sublime softness. The pros of polyamide is it's immediate softness compared to polypropylene and it's greater appearance retention compared to polypropylene. If you want a carpet to look better for longer chose polyamide. The cons? Polyamide yarn is more expensive than polypropylene ... but crikey, the bonkers soft feel you get from an iSense carpet is, in our opinion, so worth the little extra cost.
A rare one this, Suspense is classed as a Frisé carpet. Similar to Saxony carpets but the difference between the two is Frisé yarn is more tightly twisted. Frisé carpets generally offer a longer than average length of tuft and are likely to show foot and vacuuming "prints". Some folks don't like the look of a visible swirl once the vacuum cleaner's been run over the carpet but us Flooring Gurus love the phenomena ... it shows you've just hoovered ... nice clean carpet!
Associated Weavers have backed Suspense and all it's Sensuality Collection stablemates with a 20 year ... yes, a 20 year wear warranty.
Well, Suspense is capable of handling the rigours of underfloor heating but because it's such a chunky piece of soft carpet heaven, Suspense has a high TOG value of 2.
