Springs Colors Wamsutta
Staff Staff -- Furniture Today, October 11, 2004
At Springs, several new colors have been added along with new programs to its Wamsutta sheet offerings.
The company has added a new 600-count sateen sheet in leaf, wintergreen, daffodil, olive, mauve, sunset orange, copper and crystal. Also new are 250-count cotton-soft blend and 300-count 60/40-blend sheet sets.
In the existing 500-count sateen program, new colors include melon, sky blue and slate.
In the 400-count sateen program, blue grey, rose dust, leaf, dusty teal and tea stain have been added. In the 400-count luxury-blend sheeting program, Chinese red, dusty yellow, cafe, mineral, blackberry, driftwood, fern and blush have been added. In Springs' 360-count Supima twill program, new colors include plum, salmon, aqua and parchment.
In addition, Springs is offering high-performance fabrics/treatments such as Amicor, Lycra, Coolmax and Teflon as part of its growing Wamsutta Sleepology program, which includes a new wrinkle-free 360-count cotton sheet set. Wamsutta Sleepology looks to address consumers' concerns about better fit, durability, dust mites, wrinkles and comfort through temperature control, stated the company.
In towels, the emphasis is on the addition of aquas and oranges throughout. A new unbranded Color Expressions cotton towel with a palette of 24 colors has been added. The palette consists of six contemporary brights (orange pop, lime, hot pink, blueberry, marigold and plum), six whitened brights (aqua, orange smoothie, mint, positively pink, blue sky and lemon shakeup) six pastels (ivory, peach mist, misty green, blue shadow, stone and cloud gray) and six deep traditional colors (camel, rust, olive, smoke blue, brownstone and soot).
In Wamsutta, a new ring-spun cotton towel has been added in 12 pale dusty pastels and mid-traditional colors: white, ivory, cloud, sage, seafoam, cornsilk, haze, blush, ivy, taupe, smoke and apricot. A special construction towel of modal and cotton has also been added with a palette of 18 light pastels and deep colors. They are white, ivory, lemon mist, spa, thyme, mauve, linen, blue haze, golden olive, antique gold, smoke, plum, sable, russet, wine, marine, deep green and eggplant.
Springs Industries — in partnership with Invista — also is now offering woven sheets with Lycra. The sheets feature cotton-covered Lycra that combines the feeling of cotton with a tailored appearance, stated the company. The stretch and recovery properties of Lycra enable a fitted sheet to mold to a mattress, yielding a tailored appearance, according to Springs.
