Cut and Loop
Alternating cut and loop piles allows for texture-on-texture design and soft-to-bold color combinations.
This construction consists of loops at the same height. This type offers a relatively smooth surface, however, patterns may be tufted into the pile by using additional colors.
Textured products offer slightly different variations in loop height creating a texture or pattern. Loops may vary in size to increase the visibility of texture.
Similar to the textured loop, except that height variations are far more dramatic providing deep, easily visible patterns with or without color enhancements.
