When it comes to carpet fibers, there’s not a huge cost difference between them.
If you take a look at our Carpet Buying Guide
, you’ll see that most carpet fibers have similar costs.
Wool fibers are considered luxury, and you probably won’t find wool carpet easily. It’s considered one of the most expensive carpet fibers.
On the opposite end, Olefin is used in a lot of commercial carpets and is considered one of the least expensive fibers.
In between those two, we have other synthetic carpet fibers like Nylon and Polyester types. These have similar price comparisons, so you won’t find a wide range of prices between them. Plus, they’re also the two most common fibers for residential flooring.
