Abstract: The effect of wool fibre parameters and constructional changes made during the hand-knotted carpet weaving has been studied on 16 commercial carpet samples. It is observed that constructional changes dominate the fibre parameters and affect the resiliency and compressibility behaviour of the carpets. Contrary to the general belief, it is observed that finer wool carpets are more resilient than coarser wool carpets since these carpets have lesser pile height. However, such carpets suffer on their compressibility part.
