Difference between SmartStrand Silk lines
I'm in the market for some new carpet, and have found that I really like the Smartstrand Silk fiber. I'm a little frustrated at the moment, though, since I've gotten quotes from the local places selling the carpet, and while they feel very similar, they have a different style name. Vendors aren't being very forthcoming with info like twist/weight/etc, so all I really have to go on is what's on the back of the samples.
My two favorite styles are:
1V15 Gentle Essence
1V77 Mellow Haven
I can find info about Gentle Essence on the Mohawk site, but Mellow Haven seems to be almost non-existent. The only thing holding me back from going with gentle essence is I was quoted a considerably higher price for what feels like, to me, the same thing.
Also, does anyone have suggestions on which padding to go with these? It'll be installed on a concrete slab foundation. Everywhere has been giving me quotes with various #8 pads, but they're all different brands. Everyone also seems to be discouraging us from getting the pad sold by Mohawk.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
