Soft CarpetsIf you’re looking for a super soft carpet, there are Mohawk and Shaw Brands:
In the case of Shaw and Mohawk, the durable nylon fibers used in the manufacturing process have been specially engineered to be half the size of a human hair – giving them an extra silky-soft touch to the skin. Because they are so narrow in dimension, Tigressa Soft carpets weave in double the amount of fibers than required by coarser carpets, giving them the added benefit of durability. In fact, the brand’s name was chosen specifically to invoke the image of a tiger, the world’s largest cat, renowned for its strength and its soft pelt.
Shaw is another excellent choice for families seeking softer alternatives for their children’s feet (or for their pets’ feet). This carpet is the softest among the Stainmaster collection and – like others in the collection – it continues to provide tremendous durability and protection from pets’ bodily fluids (such as urine, etc), beverage spills and other messes.
Mohawk Silk also offers stain and water protection through its Triexta fibers, and it is also very soft to the touch. It is a particularly good choice for those who are looking to go…or stay…’green’ as they are made, in part, of renewable sources which is particularly good for the environment.
