Nylon considered the most versatile fiber. Durable, excellent soil resistance, less costly than wool but one of the most expensive synthetics.

Polyester softer, less durable, and less expensive than nylon .The softer fiber accepts dyes well, making brilliant colors possible. Stain resistance superior to other, more popular fibers.

Polypropylene (Olefin) extremely durable, colorfast, absorbs no moisture, with superior stain resistance. Ideal for loop-pile carpets, also made into ribbon-type yard used in outdoor carpet. Low cost, limited colors.
