Carpet Fiber Twist
The twist of a carpet is defined as the number of times the fibers are turned (or twisted) in a one-inch length, represented by a number. For example, strands that are twisted 6 times in a one-inch length have a twist number of 6. This number is sometimes referred to as the TPI—turns per inch. This referred to as carpet twist, yarn twist, turns or Turns Per Inch (TPI).
