Loop Pile

Carpeting

Definition of Loop Pile

Loop pile refers to a carpet pile that's created by weaving wool, polyester, or nylon yarn. The yarn is woven into small, tight loops to create a smooth uniform surface that's durable and comfortable under one's feet.

The tight weaving adds to the durability of the carpet by making it less prone to tearing or pulling. This feature makes it a good option for high-traffic areas in residential properties, such as the main room or hallway.

Loop pile carpeting is available in a variety of colors, textures, styles as well as varying pile heights.

It’s also easy to clean and maintain as the tightly woven loops don't allow dirt and debris to slip through. It can also be easily vacuumed. 

Ease of cleaning is also determined by the material used. For example, loop pile carpeting made of yarn will be more resistant to stains, but synthetic polyester and nylon carpets will be easier to clean.

Example of Loop Pile in a Sentence

“The loop pile construction of the living room carpet is the reason it remains clean and stain-free.”
