The importance of fibre
The quality of a carpet is a reflection of the weight and type of fibre used in its manufacture. The properties of the fibre determine the appearance, feel and durability of the finished carpet. Wool and synthetic fibres and blends of both are the most common fibres available in readymade carpets.
Synthetic fibres such as Solution Dyed Nylon (SDN), Polypropylene and Polyester offer different performance characteristics.
