Style and texture come down to the construction. Cut pile is the most common, with fibers of varying lengths, depending on yarn material, twist, tufts, etc. Saxony Plush and Saxony Textured are examples of a cut pile, while Berber is an example of a looped one. Yarns can also be long and loose, such as the shag or the frieze, where the fibers are also tightly twisted, giving them a curly look. Cut and loop constructions is a blend that embeds patterns and textures, including squares, chevrons, and swirls. This construction is also excellent at camouflaging dirt and stains.
These have a lot to do with appearance and performance. There are natural fibers, such as wool, the most common. Synthetics are man-made and include the four most common: nylon; polyester; olefin, and Triexta. While they each have plenty of advantages, what you decide will ultimately come down to your style, needs, and budget.
