Do you have a bunch of off cuts left over from when your new carpets were laid? Don’t let them go to waste. You can have them overlocked to produce something usable. Read on for more.
Carpet overlocking involves the use of a special sewing machine called an overlocker in order to sew around the outsides of carpet off cuts in order to create mats or rugs that can be put to good use in your home. The overlocking creates a neat seam or edge around the off cut which looks attractive and stops the carpet from fraying or unravelling.
The carpet overlocker will match the yarn they use for the overlocking as closely as possible to the actual colour of the carpet. Usually, your mats will be ready in a few days at most. Your new mats can be used to protect your new carpet or as a beautiful colour coordinated rug.
Carpet overlocking is done by specialists. They often do work for carpet companies so this is one way to get a hold of their services – simply ask your carpet supplier and they will get it done for you. You can also find carpet overlockers online, such as through our directory.
