Not to stir debate, because I have absolutely no knowledge about this topic
whatsoever … but, Dr. Wiki says the following:
"Loam is soil composed mostly of sand and silt, and a smaller amount of clay
(about 40%-40%-20% concentration respectively). These proportions can vary
to a degree however, and result in different types of loam soils: sandy loam,
silty loam, clay loam, sandy clay loam, silty clay loam, and loam. In the
USDA textural classification triangle, the only soil that is not predominantly
sand, silt nor clay is called "loam". Loam soils generally contain more
nutrients, moisture, and humus than sandy soils, have better drainage and
infiltration of water and air than silty soils, and are easier to till than
clay soils. The different types of loam soils each have slightly different
characteristics, with some draining liquids more efficiently than others."
