carpet fiber that bounds back


Senior Member
Hi there,

I have a carpet with fibers which slowly bound back after removing a small ladder I use. What would be the adjective to use about such fibers?:)

    Are you emphasising that it's a slow process, or that they do bounce back? I might describe it as a 'springy carpet' if it's the latter (although that doesn't particularly call to mind slowness), I can't think of any way to say the former.
