Sleepcraft mattresses are made from natural products such as cotton, wool and latex. Hand-made and hand-tufted, Sleepcraft mattresses may offer some benefits to those who suffer from allergies or are sensitive to irritants.
Cotton: The natural choice
Natural cotton is economical, grown by American farmers and is available with or without treatment with boric powder. Boric-treated cotton is used as a fire retardant to meet federal flammability standards. Boric is safe and is used in many common products, including pharmaceuticals, topical medicines and contact lens solution. Borates are naturally occurring minerals essential to plants and part of a healthy diet. No more toxic than table salt, boric treated cotton batting provides the benefits of durability, comfort and safety. Boric-treated cotton may also offer some level of protection for those suffering from allergies caused by irritants such as mold, mildew and dust mites.
100 percent certified organically grown cotton does not contain boric or mineral oil. Organically grown cotton, grown in the USA, results in a dramatic reduction in world-wide pesticide use. Organic farming does not employ synthetic pesticides, herbicides or fertilizers, ensuring that organically grown cotton is a clean, pure, natural product.
Pacific Northwest grown wool
For centuries, humans have used wool to make life more comfortable. Scientists have tried and failed to produce a synthetic product to equal the qualities of wool. Nothing compares to the comfort, resilience, wear-ability, versatility and health benefits of pure wool. Wool is hypoallergenic, naturally fire retardant, dust mite repelling, supporting and soothing.
Our wool toppers are made with Eco Valley Wool in Portland. The four inch wool topper is the ideal thickness to ease joint pain and relieve pressure in hips and shoulders.
Care for your wool topper
Your wool bedding is ready to use. There is no need to wash your items before use unless it is your preference. Made in a fragrance-free environment, there are no chemicals in use in the production facility and no animals on-site. All organic fabric are treated at the mill with either a soybean or corn starch finish to keep the fabric from wrinkling. This is a natural finish and does not need to be removed.
Washing your wool topper. While your wool bedding is washable, you must follow the instructions below to prevent felt and ruin. Wash only if dirty. Each time your wool topper is washed, it will shrink slightly. The best way to protect your topper is to place it inside a easily removable, washable cover.
Spot cleaning for a small area. For blood and small stains, apply hydrogen peroxide to the area and allow to dry between application. For larger soiled areas, place the item in the sink then hand wash the specific area with a biodegradable detergent. To assist drying, place the wet area between two towels and press out the water.
Using a washing machine, avoid agitation and machine drying. Use the soak and spin cycle on your washing machine or manually fill the machine with warm water to soak then manually set the machine to spin the water out. Repeat this step to rinse. Drape the topper over a line in the sun or in a warm place to dry.
Dry cleaning. We do not recommend dry cleaning your topper unless it is taken to a certified “green” dry cleaner. Regular dry cleaning uses chemicals that defeat the purpose of having a natural bedding product.
