Carpet can be cut pile, loop pile or cut-and-loop pile. Cut pile has loops that are cut, giving the carpet a plush, dense feel with a definite nap. The more twist a yarn has in a cut pile carpet, the harder wearing and easier keeping it is.
The familiar Berber carpeting is an example of loop carpeting. A more flat carpet without nap, loop carpet is a frequent choice for commercial applications because of its impressive ability to withstand traffic.
Cut-and-loop pile carpet combines both types of pile, giving the carpet a highly textured look. This carpet wears well and hides evidence of foot traffic.
