Dream Weaver To Roll Out Industry First at Show

Dalton, GA, Jan. 14, 2013 -- Dream Weaver Carpet will unveil the industry's first solution dyed PET soft carpet product at Surfaces later this month, the company said.

Called PureSoft Cashmere carpet, company president Melvin Silvers said the product is the first of its kind. The company, a division of Engineered Floors, primarily serves the builder and retail flooring markets.

“Carpets made with Puresoft Cashmere fiber achieve superior finish and tip definition by avoiding the mechanical abrasion of the piece dye process,” Silvers said.

The new line’s softness is the result of Engineered Floors’ new fiber extrusion process that gives the yarn a “pillowy soft” feel, the company said.

Engineered Floors invested in almost 1.5 million of square feet of new manufacturing facilities, from fiber extruders to yarn twisters and heat setters, which has allowed it to keep the entire carpet making process under one roof while making its own solution dyed polyester fiber that delivers superior performance and value to our customers, Silvers added.
