What is Denier? And why is it so important?

Denier is a unit of measurement for the weight and thickness of the fibres used in the fabric of a rug. When determining the strength of a rug it's important to consider the denier count, the fabric it is made from and your horse's needs

A higher denier indicates stronger outer fabric, which is more suitable for rug wreckers. Furthermore, nylon is a stronger fabric than polyester and is suited to horses that are rough on their rugs.
