Wool & Wool Blended with Synthetic Fibers
Wool has excellent durability, can be dyed easily and is fairly abundant. When blended with synthetic fibers such as nylon the durability of wool is increased. Blended wool yarns are extensively used in production of modern carpet. Wool is relatively expensive.
This is the most popular synthetic fiber used in carpet production. As nylon is petroleum-based it varies in price with the price of oil.
Berber carpets with smaller loops tend to be more resilient and retain their new appearance longer than large looped Berber styles.
After the price of raw materials for many types of carpet rose in the early 2000s, polyester became more competitive. Polyester has good physical properties and is inherently stain-resistant because it is hydrophobic, and, unlike nylon, does not have dye sites.
Natural Fibers These include jute, cotton, seagrass, coir, sisal and other unique fabrics for your flooring options.
