There are a variety of synthetic and natural fibers which are used in the construction of carpets.
Very soft, durable, and resistant to stains, nylon is the most popular carpet material and is used in roughly three quarters of all manufactured pieces.
These fibers are prized because they are able to hold vibrant, dramatic colors that do not fade much over time. They are non-allergenic, and in many cases this material is crafted from recycled plastic bottles making it eco-friendly. The only drawback is that it’s susceptible to having its fibers flattened under repeated exposure to weight, making it a bad choice for high traffic areas.
Almost as soft as nylon, these fibers are extremely resilient and resistant to stains, mildew, and shedding.
This is a natural, luxurious, long lasting material that is the softest carpet fiber you can find. Unfortunately low grade wool is more susceptible to staining, while high grade wool is extremely expensive. Some manufacturers combine wool with synthetic fibers in order to create a carpet with the benefits of both.
