)-- While the children are nestled all snug in their beds and visions of sugarplums dance in their heads (1), followers of the DACRON® brand on Twitter can celebrate the “12 Holi-Daze of DACRON® Fiberfill.” For 12 days, beginning Dec. 20 through New Year’s Eve, the DACRON® brand team will tweet holiday sleeping tips, brainteasers and fun facts that could earn some savvy followers a pair of branded mini-pillows that are convenient for kids and travel or a $50 gift card that could be put toward the bedding of their dreams. [See http://www.invista.com/en/brands/dacron.html for complete details and official rules.]
“Sleep is invariably the first thing to go as we celebrate the holidays, so we thought we’d have a little fun with that on Twitter,” said Donna Kelloway, segment manager for INVISTA’s North America Fiberfill business. "Because DACRON® sleep products have been around for a long time, it’s like getting tips and sleeping advice from a trusted friend.”
In addition to tweeting sleep trivia questions during the “12 Holi-Daze of DACRON® Fiberfill,” the DACRON® brand team will help busy consumers make informed holiday bedding choices for their homes, families and guests. The tweets will highlight bedding features with branded fiberfill from INVISTA, including advanced information on new DACRON® Memorelle™ fiberfill featuring SMART TECHNOLOGY, a memory foam-like alternative that’s gentler on pressure points and more adaptable to the sleeper’s movements. Pillows made with DACRON® Memorelle™ fiberfill will be available at retail stores in early 2012.
The mini-pillows that lucky winners will receive are screen-printed with the DACRON® fiber quality seal, which is based on a legacy of fiber technologies that have earned people's trust for more than 50 years. In nationwide consumer surveys, two-thirds of consumers recognize the DACRON® brand - one of the highest ratings over other comparable home textile brands. Sixty percent of home textile shoppers surveyed say they would pay more for bedding products featuring the DACRON® fiberfill quality seal (2).
