Every rug fiber starts as looped and is threaded through the backing. Like the Berber carpet, some stay as is, a straight loop, while others are cut in varying heights. The primary cut pile is where the loops are sheared in an upright position with the ends exposed. When the fibers are also densely packed, it gives the rug a luxurious, soft, velvety texture, such as Saxony Straight.
Sometimes the rugs are cut into high pile rugs, like the shag, requiring a little more cleaning. Low pile rugs have short, tightly woven fibers and, while they can also be soft, they are easier to keep clean, and some say more durable. Others, like the frieze, fall somewhere in the middle; the fibers are long but not as long as the shag and are twisted too tightly they curl.
