When you hear of Shag carpets, you may think of the of long shaggy carpets of the late 1970’s in greens and golds with multicolored textures. Shag carpets have come a long way since then, with modern shag carpeting offering luxurious softness with a look of sophistication.
Shag carpeting is constructed with dense cable yarn making it extremely soft, which is desirable in upscale bedrooms for example, although the soft feel of shag creates a cozy warm feeling in any room. The typical shag carpet is usually at least a one inch pile, so that the yarns lay randomly when exposed to foot traffic.
A shorter shag is a cut-pile plush usually a half an inch to three-quarters of an inch, with a little more density. This is a shorter pile but gives a similar luxurious feel to the shag carpet, with the fibers still falling randomly with foot traffic.
