Pile varies among carpet designs. When you compare piles, you look at both the length and thickness of the fibers. Loop pile, often called Berber loop, is created when fibers are bent in a loop and bound to their backing. The loop can be cut at the tip of the fiber to create several types of cut pile. Saxony, with its straight fibers and even finish, is the most popular. Plush is like Saxony. Its fibers are shorter, and it has a formal look and velvety feel. Frieze has a comfortable and casual look created by extra fiber twists. Textured carpet floors, typically found in bedrooms, family rooms, and dens, have fibers with uneven lengths that create a full surface.
