There are two main types of carpet construction. Loop pile consists of fibers that are bent into little loops and then attached to the backing. Loop pile, often called Berber, has a low profile and limited cushioning. These loops can be cut at the tip to create a cut pile. Cut pile varies in height. Carpet flooring
with a shorter cut pile is most durable. The longest cut pile, called shag, is ideal for low traffic areas like bedrooms. The turn per inch number, or how many times the fibers twist around themselves, is noted on the label of cut pile carpet. A 6 TPI is the most durable.
