This Texaal® Cotton standard pillow ® dust mite covers of medical quality totally envelope your pillow and are closed with zippers protected by a large flap.
Made of 100% cotton Texaal® without polyurethane coating (no lamination) or chemical treatment, this Texaal® Cotton cover has very low evaporative resistance (3.1 m².Pa/W). The lower this resistance, the more breathable the fabric.
These special characteristics allow Texaal® Cotton covers to offer you comfort identical to that of a top-of-the-range cotton sheet while forming an impenetrable barrier for dust mite allergens. (+ info)
This Texaal® Cotton dust mite cover may be machine washed at 60°C and machine dried as many times as a quality sheet. Tests carried out by IBT, an independent laboratory, have shown unchanged effectiveness of Texaal® covers after 100 washing and drying cycles. (study report)
