When it comes to fabrics, wool is the most popular in terms of usage as well as cloth. Wool is extracted directly from free-range sheep that roam the fields and are sheared only once per year. Wool is the most used in carpets as it is 100% renewable and provides no harm to nature and its natural cycle. Another fabric, more exotic than wool, is silk. Silk is a luxurious product due to its extremely soft cloth and elegant look that it provides. Apart from these animal based yarns, there are also plant based yarn. Cotton is the highlight in this category due to many reasons.

Carpets bring warmth in your day-to-day lives, these yarns are more popular as they are built to survive a little rough and tough environment and in turn ensure you receive amiability and relief in your safe space.
The fabric is the core part when choosing a carpet, it is accompanied by the style of carpet as well. When it comes to carpeting, there are five types of styles that are famous in the industry: velvet, Saxony, frieze, shag and cable. The main difference between all these styles is the difference in their texture. The texture differs from style to style in the sense that velvet is famous for being extremely soft as well as warm with the fibers all going in a straight line. On the other hand, Saxony has a smooth finish to it, but the fibers are more elongated than textured and have a twist in them. All these styles depend on one’s taste as to what catches the eye and what feels plush so when looking for a good look for the carpet, knowledge about various styles will not only help you distinguish the different styles and textures but also help you sort your choices and know exactly what you are looking for.

One looks not only what catches the eye, but also what feels and is actually natural and soft. Everything that goes in a place where people reside should be looked carefully into in terms of looks, its quality and in the case of rugs and carpets, fabric. Distinguishing your choices on the basis of these three factors, thus, will give a better perspective and clear mind when making a purchase related to carpets.
