Ideal for all those who find it too hot at night
Perfect moisture management. The optimum moisture transport of TENCEL® is unique compared to synthetic fibers. The function of TENCEL® supports this natural fiber property. An optimum skin climate is therefore guaranteed. Synthetic fibers cannot absorb moisture into the fiber interior.
Compared to cotton, TENCEL® can absorb moisture in a controlled and regular manner. Moreover, TENCEL® absorbs 50 % more moisture than cotton. Polyester on the other hand does not absorb moisture. TENCEL® can absorb up to 50% moisture without CoolAndDry mattress cover feeling wet and therefore supports a relaxing sleep.
The skin is the largest human respiratory organ. The human skin protects us, regulates the body temperature and maintains our water balance. TENCEL® in the CoolAndDry mattress cover supports these functions and acts as a second skin.
The subjective feeling of well-being is also strongly dependent on the surface structure of the fibers. Particularly rough fibers can lead to skin irritations. TENCEL® on the other hand has an exceptionally smooth surface and guarantees a gentle caressing sensation on the skin. The reason for the fine fiber surface is the low fiber stiffness. This gives the CoolAndDry mattress cover a smooth, cool feel.
Microorganisms do not find a living space. The perfect moisture management also prevents the unlimited reproduction of mites in bed. A test in a mattress (polyurethane foam with integrated TENCEL® powder) showed that the majority of an applied mite population dies off. With a conventional product, however, the number of mites increases 17-fold within 6 weeks. The mite concentration decreases drastically due to the moisture management of TENCEL®. TENCEL® buffers moisture and the mites die, which is why this mattress cover is also particularly recommended for those allergic to house dust and animal hair.
The environmental aspect is also not to be sneezed at: eucalyptus wood from sustainable forestry is used for the production of TENCEL®. The land for cultivation cannot be used for any other agricultural purpose. Cotton, on the other hand, requires agricultural land and therefore competes with the cultivation of food. Furthermore, the yield per unit area of TENCEL® is on average 6 times higher than that of cotton. Cotton also requires 10-20 times more water than TENCEL®.
Mattress covers made of CoolAndDry are not quilted; the upholstery is woven in using a special weaving technique. This means that the unquilted mattress cover can actually be washed and, above all, easily reupholstered.
