Saxony is often referred to as the "Cadillac" of carpet. It is thought to be a superior type of carpet made from very high quality materials. This type of carpet is a cut loop style that is woven in loops and sheared to create an even surface. The fibers are very soft and create a plush texture that is very soft to the touch.
One disadvantage to Saxony carpet is that it is susceptible to showing signs of traffic and vacuums, meaning footsteps and tracks from the vacuum will show on the surface. If you desire a smooth carpet, you'll have to vacuum frequently. Newer versions of Saxony carpet are being produced to make it more resistant to these issues, but is not always manufactured with the high quality that is typically expected.
