Experimental: Silk-Like Pillowcase
Silk- Like pillowcase-One-half of subjects will be assigned to sleep on the study product, which is a standard size pillowcase made of a silk-like fabric every night for 12 weeks. The study pillowcases are fabricated from a light-weight plain-weave fabric woven of 100 percent synthetic yarns. The fabric is comprised of approximately 50% polyester and 50% nylon. The yarns in the fabric are formed from continuous-filament fibers, with no fibers projecting beyond the planar surface of the fabric. The antimicrobial technology used in the fabric is incorporated into the fibers during the finishing process and does not migrate out of the fabric or cause adverse reactions with skin contact.
