Haralee.com Sleepwear is designed for the woman who has night sweats. The wicking fabric transports the sweat from the body to the fabric where it quickly evaporates. This means the woman gets a good night’s sleep staying dry and comfortable.
All of our garments are made with Chito Santé treated fabric. Chito Santé is a new environmentally friendly treatment made from Chitosan, a natural biomass made from crab and/or shrimp shells. Since Chitosan binds very easily, it can be combined with a variety of different fibers and creates a fabric with many benefits.
Chito Santé is the only antibacterial bio-agent in the world that is certified by the US Environmental Protection Agency.
Chito Santé fabric is:

Haralee Weintraub spent 25 years working for Fortune 500 and 100 companies in sales, marketing, training and management. In 2002, with her invasive breast cancer diagnosis, she looked closely at her career path. Haralee was familiar with wicking clothing from the gym, the tennis courts, the slopes and the trails. She could not find the same performance materials found in outdoor clothing for sleepwear. The same sweat equation whether from physical exercise or night sweats was the same; Sweat = Hot = Cold = Miserable.
With an old sewing machine and bike short fabric she made her first prototype nightgown. It was heavy but it worked. She found more sleep friendly fabric and made another sample and brought it to her breast cancer support group. They went wild with enthusiasm. Two years after her initiation into the world of breast cancer, she started Haralee.com Sleepwear with her goal to make cool garments for hot women. As CEO, Haralee is involved in every aspect of the company, designing the styles, picking fabric colors, as well as the promoting and marketing of the line. She is devoted to help eradicate breast cancer and donates a portion of every sale to breast cancer research.
Haralee is a spokeswoman for the Susan G Komen Foundation of Oregon and Southwest Washington. She is a former executive board member of the Clara Jean Foundation. She is also a blogger for Empowher and Vibrant Nation.
