The carpet face weight is the amount of fiber (in yarn form) per square yard of carpet. Obviously, a heavier face weight means additional cost since more fiber is used, and it is often an indication of higher quality. The style often influences the appropriate face weight, so there is no ideal weight; generally speaking, higher face weight is better.
