I've often blogged about PET carpet. Not carpet for pets, but PET (polyethylene terephthalate). Shaw Cleartouch is an advancement in P.E.T. carpeting. Traditional P.E.T carpets are made from 100% recycled plastic bottles such as soda bottles (coke bottles as we call them here in the South), ketchup bottles, etc. Shaw Cleartouch is also made from these recycled bottles but it has quite a few enhancements. If you prefer the idea of buying carpet that is more eco friendly than others, a PET carpet is for you. The Cleartouch line by Shaw is the cream of the crop when it comes to PET carpets.
Shaw Cleartouch is designed and manufactured as a continuous filament yarn. Other PET yarns and carpets are not continuous filament. The Cleartouch continuous filament yarn style gives less fuzzing and shedding than other PET yarns. Shaw Cleartouch also wears better over time to do it's enhanced yarn system.
Another feature of Cleartouch by Shaw, is it's built in stain resistance. With a new stain resistance system, it performs much better against soiling and stains than other standard P.E.T carpet.
Lastly, if you get the chance to feel of a sample of Shaw Cleartouch, you will see it's major advantage. The inherit softness for Cleartouch is amazing. It is extremely soft when compared to normal PET carpets and actually feels like upper end nylon products.
