What is PBT I hear you ask, well it stands for Polybutylene Terephthalate Material, not any clearer!

So plastic bottles can be made into a variety of materials today, and PBT is a kind of plastic fiber with a light smooth feel and has natural stretch and recovery properties, similar to that of spandex. So its a great substitute for nylon in sock yarns.
