NEW YORK, Aug. 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Continuing its 163-year history of offering the Best, the Only and the Unexpected, Hammacher Schlemmer introduces The Always Cool Pillow, a pillow that absorbs excess heat to create a perpetually cool surface for your head and neck.

Using a fabric developed for NASA to help astronauts adapt to extreme temperature fluctuations, the pillow has millions of invisible microcapsules that absorb excess heat when you are hot to maintain a comfortable temperature and humidity.

"The Always Cool Pillow's microcapsules adjust independently to an individual's climate to provide customized, adaptive cooling throughout the night," explained Hammacher Schlemmer's General Manager Fred Berns.

The patented cooling fabric covers both sides of the pillow and it is effective under any pillowcase.

"By providing direct cooling to the head and neck, The Always Cool Pillow targets body areas that are prone to overheating," explained Mr. Berns.

The pillow is filled with a spiral-crimped polyester that has a loose, thread-like texture that creates long-lasting loft, and it is encased by a soft, 300 thread-count hypoallergenic cotton cover.

The Always Cool Pillow is available from Hammacher Schlemmer for $69.95. For more information about this product, please visit www.hammacher.com/78165 or contact Trish Hammond at (847) 581-8987 or via e-mail at pr@hammacher.com.
