Essentially, carpet pile refers to its fiber density. That means, the longer the pile, the shaggier the carpet, and the shorter the pile, the flatter the carpet. A cut pile produces smooth, comfortable, easy-to-clean carpeting, while an uncut pile, also known as a Berber or loop pile, produces carpeting that is highly-durable and stain-resistant.
Some ofthe more popular cut styles are:
Saxony cut pile: soft, plush carpet surface, reminiscent of classic elegance.Textured Cut Pile:carpet that doesn't show marks or tracks, ideal for busy areas of the house.
Frieze cut pile: knotted, curly carpet strands that give a "twisted" surface look, and is wonderful at masking wear-and-tear.
Plush carpet pile: thick, shortened fibers present an elegant, incredibly luxurious look.
