Nylon (preferred choice)
Nylon is typically the fiber of choice as it is very cleanable and durable. All nylons are now stain treated and are anti-static. The newest addition to stain protection is a series of “Pet Friendly” carpets, which have been faring very well in the market at all price levels. As well as spanning price points, nylon offers a large range of textures and patterns. Recently nylon carpet has been made to emulate other fibers. There are very soft, high luster nylons to mimic the look and feel of viscose. There are also flat, tightly twisted loop piles to look like sisal. Also, there are de-lustered natural looking nylon products that have been made to look more like wool. As with many things these days, you can find good and bad products. In nylon we stick to the rule: the tighter the yarn twist level, the longer it will last.
