RICHMOND, Va. — Carpenter Co. is introducing Holofiber, a new fiber used in the active wear of Olympic athletes to provide quicker muscle recovery after exercise.
The product is being launched in polyester bed pillows, mattress pads and a body pillow aimed at people who suffer from vascular problems.
