Pile Density

Pile density describes how closely carpet fibres are packed together. Greater density means the carpet will last longer and be more hardwearing. The range of density is represented as a number from 1000-6000 - this indicates ounces per cubic yard, although it’s not necessary to remember that! Ideally for a family home you wouldn’t want anything lower than 2000.
