What's the difference between Cut and Loop Pile?
Cut Pile: Cut pile carpets are carpets with originally looped fibers that were cut, so the strands are standing out. Compared to loop pile carpets, cut pile ones have a more lavish appearance. Aside from that, cut pile carpets are also softer to the touch as compared to loop pile.
Loop Pile: This carpet type has yarn fibers that are woven to loops that are attached to the back of the carpet. One disadvantage of having loop pile carpets, though, is the likelihood of the strands to run if something pulled a looped fiber.
What type of yarn should I use?
Any yarn will do - however, wool and acrylic tend to work best.
Wool: Wool is an ideal fiber for carpets. Naturally warm, soft, very resilient and elastic. However, it is the more expensive option.
Acrylic: Acrylic yarn is the most like wool of all synthetic fibers; the fiber is very elastic, lightfast and heat-insulating. Cheaper than wool.
