Boulder, CO – July 27, 2010 — Outlast Technologies, the leader in temperature regulating
technology, announces Design Weave, an Outlast® licensee, is launching Outlast® sheet sets for the
first time in Sleepy’s. The sheet sets will be sold under the Expressions® trademark brand with the
sub-brand name of Serenity.
Sleepy’s, the largest mattress retailer in the world with over 700 stores in the U.S., is a
mattress and specialty bedding retail leader. Sleepy’s is the first retailer to place a 350 thread
count Damask sheet set blended with Outlast® technology. Judy Vella, VP of product development and
branding for Design Weave, says, “We are pleased to be partnering with Outlast on such a great
product-we love the technology and believe the sheets will be popular among Sleepy’s consumers.”
When coupled with Outlast® core bedding products (mattresses, mattress pads, blankets, pillow
protectors), Design Weave’s innovative and luxurious sheet set incorporating Outlast® technology
helps to reduce temperature changes under the covers so the user stays at a balanced temperature
throughout the night.
“The Sleepy’s placement via Design Weave is exciting in that we were able to not only fill a
void within the distribution channel, but also do it with a unique, fashion-sensitive, high
value-in-use product that we’re sure consumers will embrace,” says Guy Eckert, executive vice
president of business development for Outlast Technologies. “I’m excited to have Sleepy’s on board
and look forward to future innovations.”
BENEFITS OF OUTLAST® TECHNOLOGY
Outlast® technology incorporated in the fabric of the sheets actively balances the
microclimate temperature under the covers, allowing users to stay in a comfort zone. Outlast®
technology improves comfort by managing heat build-up under the covers to prevent perspiration and
continuously adapts to changing skin temperature to keep you “thermo neutral.” Outlast® bedding is
perfect for thermally incompatible couples, women experiencing menopause and anyone looking for a
more comfortable night’s sleep.
Sheet sets are available in green, blue and white, Damask stripe pattern.
