Learn More About Carpet
Is the carpet material itself. Single fibers are spun together to create two-, three- or four-ply yarn, which is then attached to a woven backing.
Refers to the height of the fiber. Pile is also referred to as “face” or “nap.”
Is the measure of how closely packed the strands of fiber are to one another. The higher the density, the stronger the carpet.
Is measured in ounces per square yard. Face weight refers to the amount of fiber on the surface of the carpet, while total weight includes the backing and latex as well. High face weight is a good indication of quality.
Comes from the style in which fibers are looped, twisted or cut. This determines the look and feel of the carpet, and plays a large role in its durability.
Refers to the number of time fibers turn in a 1-inch length. Higher twist counts are typically more resilient and better resist traffic and crushing.
Is a 1-5 rating scale for Performance, Appearance and Retention; the higher the number, the more easily it retains its appearance.

Berber / Loop
Features large, uncut loops of natural-tone fibers varying in size and usually made from wool, nylon or olefin. It’s denser than most other carpets and highly stain resistant. This is not a good choice for homes with pets, though, as their claws can snag on the fibers.
Shag / Frieze
Has a short, durable, twisted pile well-suited for busy areas – it’s often used for commercial purposes. The fibers curl in different directions, so they hide footprints and other common carpet marks. Frieze yields a somewhat informal look.
Offers a combination of cut and loop pile, allowing more options of textures and patterns. The pattern looks as if it’s been cut into the carpet and usually features several tones from the same color family. The change in color helps disguise wear and soiling.
The closely-packed yarns give a soft, smooth-finished surface that’s elegant, soft and works best in formal settings. Plush carpet can show seams, footprints and vacuum marks.
Has a very soft feel. Two-toned yarn and an uneven surface give it a casual look suited for any room. Its tight-twist construction helps resist soil, so it’s a good choice for family rooms. This is the most popular carpet option.
