Different Types Of Natural Fiber Carpet

Some carpets are made from the natural fibers obtained from the plants, insects and animals.

The fiber that is obtained from the plant is known as the vegetable fiber and the fiber which is got from the animal and insects is known as the protein fiber.

The major disadvantage with both protein and vegetable fiber is: it shrinks when cleaned with water and also have ability to grow the mildew and bacteria.

Wool:

Wool fibers are obtained from the fleece of sheep and lambs. The wool for the carpets is imported from Australia, England and New Zealand. Wool carpets are considered to be the finest from all the other types of carpet.

The wool carpet is very resilient as they can easily stretch up to the 40% from its actual length and it can also bend forth and back by 180,000 times without damaging. Wool carpets are the best quality product but an expensive one.

Silk:

The silk fiber is obtained from the larva of the silk worms. They are from 300 to 1600 yards in length. The silk is non-flammable, tough and is not affected by the static charges.

Cellulose fiber:

This type of fiber is obtained from the plants and they are used as the backing material in the woven and tufted carpets.

Cotton:

The cotton is obtained from the cotton plant and it is type of vegetable fiber. The cotton yarn is used to weave the rugs and the carpets. Cotton becomes toughest when it is wet and it is resistant to the alkaline solution.

The major drawback with cotton fiber is that: when it gets wet it requires the more time to dry. If it does dry out properly, it is very likely to produce the mildew and make the carpet shrinks. It can easily be smashed by stains, soils, mats, acids.

Jute:

The jute is obtained from jute plant. The jute plants are grown in Pakistan, South America and in India. The longer fibers from jute can be obtained from the stalk that is positioned between the inner pulp and the outer bark.

In woven carpets, jute is being used as weft yarns and in tufted carpets; it is used as the backing material. The jute is not so expensive. The drawback of the jute is: when it encounters with the water, it shrinks and grow the mildew.

Sisal:

The sisal is obtained from the leaves of the agave. As the sisal is too tough, it is used in making the sacking, rugs, ropes and even carpets. For cleaning the carpet you should use the low moistures method, otherwise it will shrink. This fiber gains the stains easily.

Rayon:

The rayon is the synthetic fiber and it is produced by taking the raw material from the cellulosic fibers of cotton and wood pulp and then treating it with the chemicals which gives it the original form of synthetic fiber.

As it looks like silk, it is used to make the rugs. It has low resistant against the abrasion and cellulose browning. It is easily damaged when encountered with acids.
