Q How do they pass the fire retardant tests without chemicals?

A Wool is a natural fire retardant. The upper layers of the mattress are pure organic Welsh wool and have no flammable synthetic fibres or chemicals.

Q What’s the benefit of organic cotton for me?

A Durability and quality that only organic cotton can provide. Non-Organic textiles are compromised and weakened by the chemicals used in growing, processing and dyeing them; all these create an inferior product. You also avoiding lying on, breathing in and absorbing the chemical residues left in the mattress.

Q With all the wool, isn’t it hot?

A Not at all; wool is an excellent temperature regulator. Draws moisture and excess heat away from the body in the summer. A really snug insulator in the winter.

Q How should I look after my organic mattress?

A Turn as often as you can. Protect your mattress with a washable protector or blanket. Hoover occasionally and air frequently.

Q What is Natural latex?

A It is the sap from the Hevea tree; totally free from foams and petro-chemicals. A natural alternative to memory foam; its structure allows it to disperse heat, making it cooler and more comfortable to sleep on in the summer.

Q Are metal springs organic?

A All metal is derived in some way from an ore that is mined from the earth; it doesn’t get much more natural than that! It’s also the deepest component within the mattress and isn’t coated in any additional chemicals
