The journey from fibre to sleep

Discover the journey behind our BALANCE collection and find out more about the steps and technology that transform beechwood fibres, into our soft, sustainable and temperature-regulating NATTWELL™ fabric.

Research and Development

Step 1: Understanding our physiological sleep needs

Research & Development

Each of our collection starts with a physiological sleep need, many people struggle with being hot and cold at night. Temperature fluctuations impact in particular our deep sleep phases negatively, as a result we either wake up or have a lower quality sleep

We work with academic partners and sleep experts throughout Switzerland and across the world. Read more about our sleep experts

Step 2: Choosing the natural fibres

Balancing beechwood

NATTWELL™ is made with beechwood fibres.. Not only is this fabric soft and characterized by exceptional moisture- and temperature-management properties, but it is also ecological and sustainable.

NATTWELL™ is proven to be 6x more breathable and 4x better at evaporating sweat than cotton.

The power of botanic fibres

The beechwood used in our Balance collection is sourced from sustainably grown forests in Austria and neighboring countries. Dagsmejan uses fibres from Lenzing, the worlds leading producer of cellulosic fibres and one of the most sustainable and ethical producers of any fibres worldwide.

It’s carbon-neutral, requires less land per tonne than cotton fibres and ten to twenty times less water.

Step 3: Spinning the yarn

Soft, sustainable and ethical

The beechwood fibres are spun into a super-fine and super soft yarn with one of the leading spinners in Europe. The process is not only Oekotex 100 certified but also ISO certified (9001, 14001, 50001)

We use a special eco yarn bleached not with chemicals but with oxygen to create the most sustainable pajamas possible.

    "Since few days I am proud owner of two night dresses, in which I sleep wonderfully! I have been wearing shirts in modal quality for years, but the functionality of your products is sensational! I admit, I was skeptical before, because a newspaper can write a lot...;-) But the shirt remains dry, despite night sweating."

    "They just keep on feeling soft, light and clean night after night, whereas my cotton pj's turned into a reeking bundle of sweat after a night or two."

    "I love my moisture wicking pajamas and this is the first time I am not woken up in sweat and sore throat due to temperature differences. The sleepwear is beautiful, light and feels like silk on one's skin. I have sensitive skin and this makes me unable to withstand all nightwear. This is smart, light and elegant."
