What are the different types of fiber for carpeting?
Carpet is made with four different types of face yarn: Wool, Nylon, Olefin, and Polyester. Many of the carpets we carry have nylon pile, however we do carry all of the different types of face yarns, along with blends of more than one type of yarn. Here is some basic information on the different types of yarn commonly used in carpet.
Nylon: Nylon is used in a high percentage of all carpets manufactured in the United States. Nylon is higher priced than polyester and olefin. It does have advantages that make it the more desirable yarn type. Nylon has outstanding wear-resistance and can be cleaned readily.
Olefin: Olefin is a strong fiber that will resist wear and staining. Is is colorfast and is very easy to clean. Olefin is a filament fiber and is commonly used in commercial and berber carpeting.
Polyester: Polyester has a very soft hand. Polyester has excellent color clarity and retains its color, and is easy to clean. Polyester is often made from recycled plastic bottles.
Staple and Filament: Both nylon and polyester can be made in a staple or filament.
What are the different types of construction for carpeting?
All tufted carpet start out as a loop pile construction. After the carpet has been looped the style of the carpet is defined by what happens to the loops, are the loops cut, left looped, or some cut and some looped.
