What is carpet pile and how do I choose the right one for me?

Carpet is made of fabric loops, and “pile” refers to the height and density of the loops. “High pile” carpets, like shag, have taller and looser fibers. Low pile carpeting (like berber or saxony) has shorter fibers and tighter loops. Pile length can affect the carpet’s softness, color, texture, and durability. The right one for you depends on your lifestyle, but you should consider things like — high pile carpets are better for sound absorption, cold insulation, and a soft luxurious feel and low pile carpets are easier to clean and better for high traffic areas or where furniture is moved around frequently.
