Pauline's Story

A few years back, Pauline Birse - a textile designer with a manufacturing background from Selkirk - went through the dreadful experience of living with cancer, and the resulting cold drenching night sweats.

What’s more, she decided to do something about it - which is when she initially approached Lavender Touch with her idea.

This is her story.

“I would wake up in the middle of the night absolutely frozen with dripping wet pyjamas stuck to my entire body. When this occurred, probably 5 - 6 times a night, due to the side effects of my chemotherapy, I wasn’t able to get out of bed, change my pyjamas and the sheets as well. I then ended up lying in soaking wet pyjamas and a soaking wet bed (normally crying), waiting until I dried off.

Personally, I feel that nobody can possibly understand the extent of trauma that these side effects can have on people’s lives. When I said ‘cold sweat’, people would suggest putting on a jumper! The reality of a cold sweat is a constantly frozen neck, constantly frozen bald head, and every half hour it feels like standing in snow naked. Added to that, your whole body is coated with cold liquid normally running down your back.

Water starts appearing on cuffs due to it pouring out of your armpits and flowing down your hands. It drips off your head down to your brow and into your eyes, because you have no eyebrows. I would never have imagined the trauma of going to bed every night until I experienced it for myself. Doctors, nurses and cancer specialists do agree that the chemotherapy sweats and cold are unavoidable in some people.”

After three years in development, Pauline was finally happy that her tried-and-tested, natural sleepwear could let people living with cancer get a good night’s sleep.

Frequently Asked Questions

Click '+' to see answer

Can I buy the tops or trousers separately?

Sorry no. This is due to the reason of their design/purpose. For someone experiencing the medical conditions causing such drenching sweats, water on the body will run from the head down the body so the garment (top and bottom) should be worn in order to absorb the sweat and keep the entire body comfortable. This is also why it has long sleeves as well as a stand up collar.

Do you have any other styles or colours?

We have only one style that is suitable for both male and female. Its design is specifically as a medical garment, to help with absorbing drenching in the body, rather than for fashion. We have a limited stock of grey if you want to contact us.

My sleepwear isn’t working as well as it did. Why?

The sleepwear must be washed on a frequent basis, (after severe night drenches – wash it daily). This is very important in order to keep the high quality bamboo material in an absorbent state. The same can happen if the sleepwear has been folded away for a long time, unused. We have to store our stock on hangers and not folded for this reason. It is worth considering washing the product prior to first wear

How should the sleepwear be washed?

Do not, under any circumstances, use fabric conditioner when you wash Bamboo Touch.Product can be tumbled dried at a low heat.

Your product is expensive, as I see other cheaper versions elsewhere, including night dresses, why?

We are a non profit organisation who developed this product using input and designs from those experiencing this drenching side effect of illness. It has therefor been made using high quality bamboo with specific design of long sleeves, high collar and as a pyjama set only. This quality and coverage of the body is what gives the wearer a more comfortable and drier sleep. Any money coming from the sale of these items goes directly back into the cancer charity we run.

I am a menopausal woman, will these work for me?

Bamboo Touch was not designed to help with hot sweats, associated with the menopause, however if your sweats are extreme, in that they cause your bedding to have to be changed several times a night causing distress to yourself and a partner, they may work for you.

Is your sleepwear only for people with cancer?

No. Originally produced by us for people living with cancer, we are very aware of many other medical conditions that can cause extreme drenching sweats in the night, and that benefit from the use of this product. The condition can sometimes be referred to as Hyperhydrosis and can be experienced by people living with Parkinsons, TB, Thyroid problems, Infections, Leukemia, Lymphomas, Mesothelioma, and other cancers.

How long does an order take to come to me as I need them urgently?

The Bamboo Touch sleepwear gets dispatched, on most occasions, the day we receive the order from you. We know how people suffer with this condition so we do our utmost. However we are a small charity and run with volunteers, so its dependant on them processing the orders quickly. In most cases it will come out within just 2 or 3 days to you.
