Special Note About Berbers: Berbers are big bulky yarns that are either produced in a level loop or multi-level loop carpet construction. This type of construction makes berbers extremely durable and a good choice for active areas in the home.

Carpet Fibers

Nylon: This is the most popular synthetic carpet fiber used today. It offers tremendous value, performance and ease of maintenance. Nylon provides brilliant colors and hides soil and traffic well.

Olefin: Also called polypropylene, olefin fibers are commonly used in the construction of berbers, level loops and outdoor carpets. Olefin carpets are highly stain, static, mold and mildew resistant.

Polyester: This fiber gives excellent color clarity with a soft feel to the carpet, however, lacks the durability of a nylon carpet.

Acrylic: This fiber has a real wool look. Used mainly in level loops, bath mats and some velvet carpet styles, it offers good mold and mildew resistance with low static levels.

Wool: Although somewhat expensive, wool offers great bulk, performance and an elegant look.
