Carpet is available in every color you can imagine, but the major color categories are listed below.
Flecks are products with accent yarns of darker hues randomly twisted together among yarns of a solid base color. The darker flecks create visual interest and add a deeper, more textured surface appearance to the carpet. Flecks are popular in loop, frieze and cable carpets.
Jewel tones are constructed similarly to flecks, but have brighter accent yarns that can be red, green or even blue in color. These accent yarns give a striking visual 'pop' of color to the product.
Tweeds are becoming very popular and are characterized by a heathered two-tone visual effect. Typically, yarns of two different dye levels of the same color are twisted together to form a 'barberpole' look. Tweeds deliver visual contrast and highly styled fashion-forward rooms.
