I posted on the "Flooring" forum, but it's not very active.
I've trashed our old BR carpet (with the dog barf stains) and need to find a plush type to make a new 11 X 14 bound rug. This is the only true carpeting in our house; other rooms have wool orientals. I haven't bought carpeting in ages.
I saw a 65oz Mohawk nylon plush at a big box store -- dense, but pretty short pile (maybe 3/8"). It was about $3/ft. It's made from recycled plastic bottles. ??? 10/yr. warranty.
I'd like to spend under $1K and need a soft green. Any hints or ideas? Any no-no's? Help! That bare wood floor is no fun! in December!
