Carpet density versus twist

Posted by nestledone (My Page) on

I've narrowed down my carpet search to two SmartStrands:

One has a density of 3080 and 6.5 twist. The other has a density of 3528 and a twist of 5.5. Given this info, what should I go for - the higher density or higher twist?

I should mention - that twist number is simply what's given on the board. I don't know if it's twist per inch or total twists...

RE: Carpet density versus twist

I consider density to be more important than twist. I have seen average twist carpets which rate high in density perform well over a number of years.
