Pile is defined as the length and thickness of fibers. Loop pile features uncut loops that are created using weaving machinery. The two most popular types are Berber and Sisal. Cut pile is created when the loops are cut at the tip of the fibers. The most popular type is Saxony, which has an even finish and straight fibers. The turns per inch (TPI) number ranges from 3.5 to 6.0 on cut piles. The fibers are twisted around each other 5 times if the TPI is 5. Douglas Flooring
