If you wouldn’t buy a home or a car based solely on its color, why wouldn’t you purchase carpeting according to the same criteria? Buying carpeting is the third most expensive purchase that the average homeowner makes; yet many primarily base heir decisions upon whether or not it will match the color of the sofa or wallpaper. Along with carpet density, one important factor in determining carpet performance is “carpet twist level,” which is measured in turns per inch. Carpets with higher twist levels tend to hold their appearance longer than those with lower twist levels. As the yarns on lower twist products start to unwind, they begin to intertwine with other yarn tips to create an undesirable matted appearance.
