Silk/Wool 25/75 Blended Yarn 278/3TEX
Carpet yarns are spun by specialist companies that serve the carpet industry. Wool is one of the most luxurious types of carpet fiber, and it is also among the most durable and stain-resistant. It's also dense and can hide soil better than synthetic fibers.Wool comes from sheep or lambs and is considered the oldest man-made fiber. Its longevity makes it one of the best face yarns for carpets. Wool is chemically made of carbon, oxygen, and sulfur, which accounts for its smell when damp.The process of dyeing carpet yarn involves adding colored pigments to fibers in a solution. Then, these fibers are spun into yarn. This dyeing process creates carpet fibers with color that is both permanent and colorfast. Most commercial nylon carpets are dyed this way.
However, some types of polyester fibers can also be dyed in this way.There are several methods of dyeing carpet yarn. One method is space-dying polyester or polypropylene yarn and overdying the tufts with another yarn that is undyed. The undyed yarn must be susceptible to the same dye as the space-dyed yarn and must not interfere with previously dyed yarn. Another method is Tak dyeing. This method involves using dye that has a different density than the original yarn.When choosing a carpet, you should consider the stitch rate of the yarn. This is the number of stitches per inch along the carpet's width. The stitch rate is the primary factor in determining the density of the finished product. The higher the stitch rate, the more dense the carpet will be. However, there is a limit to how high this number can go. Fortunately, the stitch rate of carpet yarn can be easily changed during the manufacturing process.The stitch rate of carpet yarn is usually listed on the back of a carpet.
A carpet made from 1/10-gauge yarn should have a stitch rate of about 10 stitches per inch. This number is important for determining the carpet's durability, but there are other factors that should be considered before purchasing it.Fabrication of carpet yarn involves spinning short lengths of synthetic or natural fibre together. These fibres are then woven together to form continuous strands of yarn. These fibres must have a certain degree of stiffness, which is required for carpet. Carpet yarn should also have an elongation factor of 10% or less.The first step in the fabrication process is called tufting. It involves weaving the yarn into the primary backing, which is usually made of woven polypropylene. The two parts are then squeezed together with a tufting machine with up to 2,000 needles. The process also involves a small hook called a looper that grasps the yarn. This creates a loop pile construction, which is recognizable by its lack of exposed tips.
