Carpet tufts are individual tufts or yarns which comprise the carpet pile that we see and touch on the surface of carpet. Carpet yarn is inserted or stitched into the carpet's primary backing by the tufting process to create carpet tufts.
The security of an individual tuft is measured as tuft bind.
The placement of yarn density is measured as stitches per inch and as tufts per square inch.
