Sherwood Colours

Available colours within the Sherwood Range:

Sherwood Specification

Sherwood imbues a touch of rustic charm and elegance into any room. The structured small loop pile construction not only enhances the carpet’s texture and depth but also contributes to its refined and sophisticated appearance.

Crafted from 100% undyed, blended heathered wools, the four natural shades available in Sherwood ensures a neutral and enduring look that complements any space. In addition to its classic style, Sherwood prioritises sustainability by minimising environmental impact through the use of natural materials. This commitment to eco-friendliness makes Sherwood an excellent choice for those looking to combine style with sustainability while adding a cosy and warm ambiance to any room.

Sherwood is available in a 4-metre width which offers several practical benefits for installation and design flexibility. It is suitable for a wide range of room sizes and layouts, providing ample coverage while being easy to handle and install. The 4-metre width allows for efficient use of the carpet with minimal wastage, making it a cost-effective choice for both residential and commercial applications. Additionally, the 4-metre width can be easily manoeuvred around obstacles and fitted into rooms with irregular shapes, ensuring a precise and tailored finish.

Colour Matching & Shade Variations

As with all textile products, colours may vary slightly from batch to batch. Whilst every effort is made to ensure accurate colour matching from one batch to another, natural undyed wools can have inherent variations in colour due to factors such as the source of the fibre, the specific breed of the animal, and environmental and seasonal influences. Even with careful production processes, these natural variations can result in slight colour differences between batches.

To address this concern and if your requirements are particularly colour critical and you require an exact colour match, it is advisable to request a dye batch cutting from your Authorised Dealer before placing your order. By obtaining a sample from the specific batch you intend to purchase, you can assess its colour and ensure it meets your expectations.

If you are using the carpet in adjoining areas, please make sure you tell us so that we can take your cuts from the same colour batch.

Heathered carpets

Heathered carpets are created using random blends of colour, resulting in coloured flecks which are a natural feature of a heathered carpet. The blending process may also result in some linearity which is not always visible on samples and, again, is an inherent design of this type of carpet and not considered a manufacturing fault.


Riviera Home UK carpets should be sold and professionally installed in accordance with BS:5325, using a good quality underlay.


Carpets may develop light and dark shaded areas, particularly in heavy traffic areas; this is called ‘shading’ or ‘pile reversal’ and is caused by pile pressure. This can also appear as a ‘water mark’. This is not considered to be a manufacturing defect and can occur on most textiles.

Care & maintenance

If installed and maintained correctly, our carpet should give you years of good service. We recommend that spillages are spot cleaned immediately. For major spillages, please consult a professional carpet cleaning contractor.
