Polypropylene originates from a pellet (as shown), a thermoplastic polymer. As a fibre, is known for its flexibility and softness making it excellent for creating durable rugs, particularly the shaggy type. The fibre is created by the raw product being heated at very high temperatures. It is then forced through tiny holes in steel plates to form an extruded fibre. The fibre is then stretched, spun and twisted into various forms of yarns, ranging in colour, thicknesses and finish.
