It is the fabric loops: either with long, loose fibers like the high-pile shag or shorter, more tightly woven low piles like cut and loops.
Keep in mind each room and installation have different priorities and challenges.
This can make one carpet pile better than another for a particular installation. For instance, you might notice that most offices go with a low pile; that's because they're easier to clean and somewhat more long-lasting.
A high pile rug is great for bedrooms, but not-so-much for stairs where the priority is safety. The fibers don't provide a proper foundation, so down you'll go.
