Designers have developed pyjamas that regulate body temperature, stop itching and ensure a good night's sleep, it has been claimed. The nightwear, which is produced from a fabric called Dermasilk, can also help reduce the itching endured by sufferers of skin disorders such as eczema and dermatitis.
The pyjamas have been developed for Travelodge, the hotel chain, which carried out a survey to discover what kept people awake. The study surveyed 3,000 adults and found that 23 per cent suffer from itchy nightclothes, which stops them from getting a good night's sleep.
Being too hot or cold is a common complaint, with 66 per cent confirming that their body temperature changes constantly throughout the night, which affects their sleep pattern.
More people feel too hot, 54 per cent, in comparison to feeling cold, 35 per cent, while sleeping.
The sleepwear will be tested by customers at Travelodge hotels at Heathrow airport, Birmingham Fiveways, Bristol Central, Manchester Central and Edinburgh Central.
