Celebrate the world as an art gallery with Yarn Storm

Bringing bold and colorful patterns into an interior setting can create the illusion of being surrounded by art. Milliken’s Yarn Storm collection provides the means to do just that!​

The collection creates unique interior aesthetics through multi-dimensional patterning and color. Yarn Storm was designed to illustrate horizontal and vertical explorations of hand-knit texture that balances chaos with precision on the floor plane. 

The solution dyed nylon construction offers a new perspective of linear designs and features a total recycled content of 50 percent.

·   Utilizes Econyl yarns by Aquafil, the world’s first and only 100 percent sustainable polymer.
·   ​Available in module carpet tile (50 cm x 50 cm).
·   Features 16 colors that coordinate with Milliken’s Southern Analog and Sound and Fury collections, while making a bold individual statement.
·   Standard with ComfortPlus® ES cushion backing system.

TractionBack® Technology
Yarn Storm is available with TractionBack® technology - a modular carpet backing that is less costly, environmentally superior and faster and easier to use compared to wet adhesives or peel and stick adhesives. No “peel” is required, just “stick” with TractionBack® – this eliminates the need for any additional tools, such as a gun, to install the carpet and also uses less material and energy to install.


The hand-knit design found in Yarn Storm can be seen trending in other aspects of art as well. The term “yarn bombing” has become a popular term among artists who knit in order to beautify urban landscapes. This new art, coined street graffiti, is appearing in urban populations throughout the world. Here are just a few examples of the urban yarn bombing trend:
