Answer: Twist
Explanation: To get the best performance and most enjoyment out of your carpet it’s essential to select a carpet fiber that fits your needs. The majority of the carpet produced in the United States contains one of five primary pile fibers: nylon, polyester, polypropylene (olefin), triexta and wool. Synthetic fibers represent the vast majority of the fiber used to manufacture carpet in the U.S. Each fiber type offers somewhat different attributes of durability, abrasion resistance, texture retention, stain and soil resistance, colorfastness, ease of cleaning and color clarity. Manufacturers, retailers, specifiers, and designers are valuable resources in helping you determine the most appropriate fiber and carpet construction for your needs.

Answer: Does not matter (all are the same)
Explanation: Its been my experience as a professional installer in going back to a few homes 5 or 10 years later the differing styles of carpets look as good as they did when I installed them & that depends on where they were installed & how they were cared for & the precautions the homeowner took to protect their investment. All carpets are susceptible to high traffic wear & sunlight, so be careful of where you choose to install your carpet. That is why I choose "Does not matter".
