Face weight is the number of ounces of fiber per square yard. The amount of fiber is directly related to the carpet performance and durability.
Twist is the number of times the fiber is twisted together in a 1-inch length. How many times the yarn is twisted, particularly in cut pile, is critical to carpet performance.
Density is how tightly together the fiber is stitched into the carpet backing. Higher density affects the look of the carpet and improves resistance to crushing and matting.
The quality of the pad laid underneath your carpet directly affects the comfort (feel) and durability of the carpet.
