Carpet Fibers

Carpet is one of the most versatile flooring options since it is available in various colors, patterns, materials, textures, sizes, heights, and more. In addition, your carpet’s fibers, also known as carpet pile, will determine how your rug feels, appears, and functions.


Carpet pile can be natural or synthetic. The most common carpet styles are cut loop and combination pile carpet. Cut pile is named for the cut ends of the yarn that makes up the carpet and can come in various styles. Cut pile carpet is the most popular type of carpet in residential homes.
