Know some simple terms. Density refers to how closely the fibers are tufted together, and this determines quality. Weight isn't a good indicator of quality because too many factors can determine heaviness. If you bend back a sample card and see a lot of white space, be sure to ask about it.
Twist refers to how many times per one-inch length, a fiber is twisted. Twist numbers usually range from one to six but may go as high as eight. This only refers to a high pile (long, loose fibers) like the shag or frieze and not with low pile (short, tightly woven yards) rugs like the Berber.
