Merino Wool is a highly sought-after fabric in the textile industry. It is appreciated for its excellent benefits and performance. These magnificent properties come from the shape of its fibres. It is finer than conventional wool and it has a specially arranged structure with heterogeneous strips which create bags of air that help retain body heat, making the wool stronger and better quality. This internal space acts as an air chamber, providing better insulation.
The wool keeps you warm when it is cold and cool when it is warm. This is a high performing natural product which helps to ensure that the bed is at an optimal temperature, proving a noticeable level of comfort. Some of its other properties are that it is antistatic, elastic, water resistant, thermal insulating, temperature regulating, breathable, soft to touch and ecological. It also prevents itches and irritation and repels unpleasant smells.
Cotton is a very breathable fibre and which has a fresh feel to it. As a result, when we add it to our mattresses, we achieve fresher and more breathable products which allow air to circulate around the body. This helps us to feel more comfortable in a healthier sleeping environment, as we do not just breathe with our lungs, we also breathe through the pores on our body which perspire and eliminate toxins from our organism. Therefore, in order not to sweat and to feel comfortable, it is important to sleep on a mattress which allows the air to flow freely around our body. This will allow us to fall asleep more quickly and to enjoy refreshing sleep for longer.
An important factor to keep in mind is that, as it is an organic product which has been grown without any pesticides or herbicides, it does not contain any substances which are harmful for our health, minimising the appearance of any allergies. Being an ecological product, it also helps us protect the environment. The benefits of this gift from Mother Nature include softness, resistance, a pleasant feel to it, breathability, and absorption and expulsion of moisture. Furthermore, cotton is good for our skin and reduces allergens, which is good news for both our health and the environment.
We could describe linen as an extremely modest fabric with numerous health benefits which contribute to a restful sleep. Linen was the first vegetable fibre used in the textile industry from the 4th century B.C. until the 17th – it was, alongside wool, the most important fabric. It is a 100% natural fibre known for its resistance and durability, as well as its antiallergic and moisture absorbing properties.
It is also worth mentioning that it repels static electricity and absorbs noise and vibrations very well, another factor which contributes to a good night’s sleep. As well as being an eco-friendly fabric, it will ensure that you are cool in summer and comfortable in winter. Let yourself go and enjoy the comfort and benefits of these natural fibres provided by this modest textile.
As well as having properties like softness, luxury and being elegantly shiny, silk has other unbeatable benefits which make it different from other fabrics. This is why it gained its worldwide reputation as the ‘Queen of Fibres’, being one of the most sought-after textiles in the world thanks to its unique characteristics and benefits. Its benefits are the following:
Hypoallergenic and anti-dust mites. This is beneficial for people who suffer from allergies to synthetic fabrics. The properties of silk make it naturally very resistant to dust mites and it does not produce unpleasant smells.
Breathable. Silk has porous fibres and as a result, it is very breathable.
Stable, resistant and durable. Silk is naturally strong and elastic, so if you’re looking for the highest quality, this is your best option.
It regulates temperature. When it is warm, silk absorbs and transfers excess heat and moisture, acting as a natural heat regulator. In this way, it makes winters mild and summers cool, ensuring your sleeping environment stays comfortable. The composition of silk threads allows them to expel moisture, thus avoiding any mould or unpleasant smells.
Maximum comfort. Soft and light, silk is the finest, most flexible and agile natural fibre. It provides a pleasantly soft and smooth sensation which creates a relaxing effect on the nervous system and contributes to a restful and refreshing night’s sleep. Nothing compares to the softness, comfort and quality of silk.
Hygiene. Due to its antiallergic properties, silk is considered to be one of the most hygienic fabrics on the market.
NEROLI OR ORANGE BLOSSOM
Neroli or orange blossom are names given to the essential oil which is extracted from the bitter orange tree. For many years, Neroli oil has been used in aromatherapy for its aromatic and therapeutic properties, as well as in the treatment of some emotional illnesses such as depression, anxiety and insomnia due to its calming properties which help to balance body and mind.
Despite its oriental origins, oranges are very much linked to Mediterranean culture. The use of citrus fruits in cosmetics has been around since ancient times when it was already normal practice to prepare baths with certain flowers to improve mood. That is why we use this oil in the manufacturing of some of our foams, as it helps us to fall asleep faster.
Cashmere wool, which is eight times warmer than sheep’s wool despite being much lighter, is obtained from the soft wool of the Cashmere goat. Its long soft fibres have excellent insulating properties. As well as being light, comfortable and extremely soft, it adapts well to changes in temperature. Many of the properties of Cashmere wool are similar to those of Merino wool, thus sharing many of the same benefits.
Some of the properties of Cashmere wool include softness, temperature regulation, breathability, resistance to unpleasant smells and moisture control. A notable difference is that Cashmere wool can be up to eight times warmer that other types of wool. Its fibres are soft to the touch, and therefore it is incredibly light and comfortable. Investing in the perfect night’s sleep is one of the best investments we can make.
Tencel, the new sleeping culture, is a 100% natural, eco-friendly and biodegradable plant-based fibre. It is obtained by extracting the pulp of wood through an entirely ecological process. It is currently the most environmentally friendly cellulose fibre, being extremely soft to the touch and providing maximum comfort for your skin. It creates a healthy environment for the body, especially for those of us with sensitive skin. Tencel is excellent at absorbing moisture depending on your skin’s temperature, ensuring in this way your comfort.
It is exceptionally soft and perfect for those of us with sensitive skin. Its fibres contribute to air flow and make it breathable, offering naturally antibacterial, bactericide and antifungal protection. It is a cutting-edge fibre and its main properties are that it is extremely soft to the touch, it regulates body temperature, it absorbs moisture and it dries faster than other fibres. In addition, it naturally inhibits the growth of bacteria, dust mites and fungus and is 100% natural, organic and renewable, as well as breathable and extremely resistant.
Olive Oil Treatment is a completely innovative treatment with olive oil through which we obtain beneficial properties from this oil that has been used for centuries to take care of our skin. In Karibian Descanso we have created a mattress with this novel treatment.
It is a treatment that helps restore the skin’s natural levels of moisture, contributing to the hydration and maintenance of the entire dermis structure, which is a large part of cell membranes, as well as providing antibacterial protection.
Adaptive fabric is an adaptable polymer which, when applied to the mattress fabric, changes its shape and stimulates the evaporation of moisture, reducing perspiration and keeping it dry. This generates a neutral and pleasant thermal sensation, allowing for long-lasting sleep, as well as retaining and evaporating moisture after sweating, keeping the mattress cool.
What is Adaptive? Adaptive is an intelligent textile technology that transforms passive textiles in textiles capable of dynamically responding to changes in the environment, such as changes in temperature and moisture. This new innovation is based on a unique hydro-functional polymer whose properties change in response to temperature, releasing and transporting moisture.
At Karibian Descanso we have used Cooler technology to develop a mattress which is able to stay cool and provides the body with the fresh Cooler sensation. This maximises sleep quality by creating a relaxing environment. The reduction in body temperature helps and improves our ability to fall asleep. Keeping in mind that we spend a third of our lives asleep, good quality sleep is clearly important to lead a healthy life.
Do not let the heat disturb your dreams and enjoy your hours of sleep while feeling much fresher. Sleep better in an extra comfortable sleeping environment provided by your mattress. Cooler, made from its characteristic fabric, has been tried and tested by several university and internationally accredited labs. It has been proven that Cooler fabric thread technology reduces temperature.
Soy is currently present as an ingredient in a wide range of foods like yogurt, milk, and burgers.
What is soy? It is a plant which belongs to the legume family and whose nutrients have many health benefits that have been discovered recently.
Soy offers more and better elasticity, providing a better rest thanks to its open and interlocked structure which allows optimal air flow and an ideal temperature.
Soy is characterised by unique properties for skincare which relieve pressure in the body and adapt perfectly to the shape of our body.
Thanks to this, we have been able to combine the benefits and advantages provided by this plant in a very technological process. We have added these benefits to the elaboration of some of our mattresses, made with soy extract for a more natural and eco-friendly sleep.
