Why all carpets shed fibre?
Fibre shedding is a common occurrence with new carpeting. Carpets shed fibres from the pile through foot traffic and vacuuming. This is normal for carpets with staple yarn/ spun yarn in a cut pile. The shedding will drastically reduce within a few months of installation in the home. The carpet will shed in a much smaller amount for its lifetime in the home.
