Crowdfunding Spotlight: Nightsilx: Better PJ’s

 

 

Non-GMO Hemp and Organic Cotton sleepwear that'll make your birthday suit jealous

 

About this project

Imagine a pair of pajamas you actually want to sleep in - that improve your night's sleep and are good for your skin

1_b53e5eae4b7ddae663a1a985afb9add3_original

After years of pondering the perfect sleeping environment I created minimalistic pajamas that did everything I wanted. They're better to my skin than sheets, super easy to wash and super durable.

IMPROVED DESIGN

Nightsilx were modeled after the comfiest shirts and shorts in your closet, then tweaked to fit better for sleep. That means snug but not too snug - our cut minimizes catching while you toss and turn. We think old school pajamas with buttons and collars have too much fabric and way too much going on to be comfy while you're sleeping.

THE BEST MATERIAL

No other premium natural fabric was as close to as comfy, breathable, durable and ethically sourced as our non-gmo hemp and organic cotton blend. We prototyped dozens. Sourced from a family-run business in Colorado that spent three years developing this unique blend, we're proud to work with industry leaders that care about positive change in textile manufacturing and the environment.

TREAT YOUR SKIN WHILE YOU SLEEP

I had bad skin for years. I understand taking care of it. And I'm a hippy. I wanted my product to be more than a mass-produced thing. These pajamas are made by awesome people I personally vetted, with as little impact on the environment as possible. And, they're better than other pajamas. Just check out our design features below!

WE THINK PAJAMAS CAN DO BETTER THAN LONG SLEEVES, BUTTONS & COLLARS

STAY CLEAN 

Easier to wash than sheets, Nightsilx incentivize keeping your skin in a clean environment night after night. They breathe better and they're more absorbent of sweat and oil than 100% cotton, as well as naturally anti-microbial.

STAY SLEEPING

In addition to product features like a tagless care label and low cut, irritation free neck-line, Nightsilx's hemp blend has a higher heat transfer than 100% cotton to regulate your body temperature. The optimum sleeping temperature for humans is between 60-67 degrees Farenheit.

BUT WHAT DO THEY FEEL LIKE?

They're super super soft and fluffy! Premium natural fibers get softer with time - so we recommend washing your Nightsilx a couple of times before wearing them if you want them broken in. After that, it's smooth sailing! Without getting worn and thin, our hemp blend gets increasingly comfy. That's because of hemp's high tensile strength. We're even offering a pillowcase for some soft nuzzlin' time as you drift off to dreamland.

ETHICALLY SOURCED

Our hemp is sourced from Turkey, where it's been a staple rotational crop for thousands of years. It's grown without pesticides and without any irrigation. Our supply chain improves the lives of farmers in the area by enabling them to grow a crop that's been otherwise maligned. We pay a fair price for stalks and they keep the rest of the plant material to use as a natural pesticide and fertilizer.

LOCAL? MADE IN THE PNW//USA

From dreaming up the idea to manufacturing, embroidery and shipping all is done between Washington state and Oregon. Local isn't always better, but the PNW (Pacific Northwest) sure is awesome, and we're proud to hail from the heart of Seattle.
