Lenzing Introduces SleepFacto® Concept For Comforters
Austria-based cellulosic fiber manufacturer Lenzing AG has launched SleepFacto® comforters that
offer high moisture-buffering capacity to improve sleep quality. This is the first time the
functionality of a complete comforter is being examined, according to Lenzing.
The SleepFacto® comforters contain a mix of fibers, combining at least 50 percent Lenzing Tencel® fiber — characterized by its moisture absorption properties and soft hand — blended with another company’s material. Lenzing will issue the license for the partner company to use the brand.
The first SleepFacto® product manufactured according to the criteria combines Tencel with Suprelle® Eco fibers, produced by the Netherlands-based polyester fiber manufacturer Advansa. The blend of Tencel and Suprelle Eco fibers offers a soft, moisture-active, eco-friendly material, according to Lenzing.
