Berkshire Blanket partners X-Static for baby collection

Nov '13
Just in time for the holidays, Berkshire Blanket, a leading brand of premium quality blankets, throws, and soft home goods, introduces its new Forever Safe collection of baby blankets, apparel and accessories featuring X-STATIC.
 
Forever Safe products with X-STATIC help protect the fabric closest to baby’s delicate skin in ways that have never been seen before in American baby wear or bedding. The silver fiber is knitted into the fabric - visible as stripes that are strategically spaced for optimal performance across the surface of the product line’s three different fabrications – microfleece, Serasoft plush, and cotton jersey.
 
Made with 99.9% pure silver, X-STATIC, manufactured by Noble Biomaterials, is proven by US Special Forces, NASA Astronauts and Olympic athletes to deliver unmatched protection and performance.
 
X-STATIC enhances products with permanent anti-odor and antimicrobial performance. It naturally inhibits the growth of odor-causing bacteria in textiles and apparel, keeping products protected, smelling fresher and lasting longer. 
 
X-STATIC also has natural temperature regulating properties that keep small bodies warm without overheating. Paired with Berkshire Blanket’s performance fabrics that offer breathability and moisture wicking properties, Forever Safe bedding and clothing are the first of their kind when it comes to comfort and safety.
 
"One of the hardest jobs as a parent is keeping your kids healthy," said Shannon Nieuwenhoff, Berkshire Blanket Product Designer. "Parents can now enjoy every kiss and cuddle knowing that behind the scenes X-STATIC is working hard to inhibit the growth of microbes in the fabric."
 
"X-STATIC offers a natural, non-toxic, permanent and easy-care alternative to bleach and other chemicals often used to clean baby blankets and apparel," said Janet Moisey, Director Application and Certification, Noble Biomaterials.
 
"Through our stringent testing and certification process, we work very closely with our customers to ensure X-STATIC’s benefits last through the life of the product, wash after wash. We are honored that Berkshire Blanket has selected X-STATIC to be an integral ingredient in its Forever Safe collection."
 
Pure silver is adored by parents of babies with very sensitive skin or conditions like eczema. When looking for alternative eczema treatments, parents like Mei Higgins, VP Product Development, Berkshire Blanket, have turned to silver to offer some relief.
