The first quality of good carpeting is texture. Like any other consumer good, it can be rough and coarse, or it can be soft and smooth. Carpeting will fall into the latter category. What makes different textures are the specific cuts of the yarn.
Some carpets are differentiated by twists. This means the number of rotations the yarn has been twisted. If it has just a few rotations, the look and feel will be loose. The more rotations or twists, the denser the carpet will be. The high number of twists gives the yarn the ability to pop back into shape after it has been pressed down.Twisted carpet is the top seller in carpeting trends today. This is because they are fashionable, casual, soft and durable.
Manufacturers will talk about the loop of their samples. Think back to old-fashioned looped rugs. The tighter the loops, the richer and fuller the rug appears. If the loop is loose, then the carpet is not as dense. This type of carpeting is recommended for high traffic areas and spaces like family rooms. Berber is considered a loop carpet. Most Berber selections are tight and multi-textured. This type of carpeting is extremely durable and holds up well.
