When a carpet is made, the carpet fibers (or yarn) are attached to its backing in loops. The term cut pile carpet means that the loops have been cut and the ends of the fiber are sticking up.
Plush carpet is a type of cut pile carpet where the yarns are attached very close together and are cut facing the same direction, making for a thick, luxurious feel.
There are a lot of carpet terms – things like low pile carpet and high pile carpet or frieze carpet, but how is the consumer supposed to decipher it all? Do you have questions about loop carpet, Berber carpet, or shag carpet for your Katy home? Click here!
