Downlite's new line goes after allergies

Retail Editor 4, Tom Edmonds, September 14, 2011

New York - Downlite is launching a new collection of bedding products designed and endorsed by allergist Dr. Jeffrey Miller. The Mission: Allergy collection has been tested effective for allergen-avoidance, dust mite resistance and is bed bug proof, reported the company.

Products in the line include mattress pads, pillows and comforters designed to fit larger mattresses and are available in a variety of natural and synthetic filling materials

The products are made with a tight weave microfiber. Downlite noted that Mission: Allergy polyester microfiber fabric has 0.33 denier filaments, with 204 filaments per yarn, which it claims is tight enough to block the passage of all allergen particles, while still being air and water-vapor permeable. On the comfort side: Downlite reported the microfiber has a silky feel and is not stiff or noisy.
