In its recap of last month's bedding trade show in Las Vegas, BedTimes magazine highlights two PCM-related "megatrends":
"Foam wave. The swelling popularity of foam components in all feels—often with poured gel and other temperature-regulating ingredients, cuts, contours, processes and treatments—cannot be overstated. Period."
"Yarns and fibers at the forefront. Many accessories and mattress fabrics contained viscose yarns that vendors sang the praises of—from 'cooling' to 'antibacterial.' Merino and other wools, organic cotton and other natural fibers had a strong showing among pillow and quilt fills. Other linens and accessories moved in the opposite direction—think polyester 'performance fibers.' "
