It's not a matter of whether natural or synthetic is better, but it depends on needs, style, and budget. Also, know that a synthetic can be just as soft as a natural; it depends on the cut and thickness. Nylon is a strong, resilient synthetic and becomes stain resistant with a protectant. Triexta is strong and has permanent stain resistance built into the fiber. Both olefin and polyester are known for superior inherent stain resistance.
Olefin tends to be most often associated with the Berber style, while polyester's resiliency is constantly evolving with technology. Wool is the most common natural fiber. It's plush, fluffy, and white. It has oils to make it inherency stain resistant, and it is sometimes combined with a soft synthetic to increase soil repellency.
