You may have many questions about Abaca, organic and mattresses in general. We have limited the number of FAQs to what we get frequently asked, but of course if you have any questions you can contact us directly.
HOW DO THEY PASS THE FIRE RETARDANT TESTS WITHOUT CHEMICALS?
WHAT’S THE BENEFIT OF ORGANIC COTTON FOR ME?
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. You also avoid lying on, breathing in and absorbing chemical residues.
WITH ALL THE WOOL, ISN’T IT HOT?
Not at all; wool is an excellent temperature regulator. It draws moisture and excess heat away from the body in the summer and is a really snug insulator in the winter.
HOW SHOULD I LOOK AFTER MY ORGANIC MATTRESS?
Turn as often as you can. Protect your mattress with a washable protector or blanket. Hoover occasionally and air frequently.
WHAT IS NATURAL LATEX?
It is the sap from the Hevea tree; totally free from foams and petro-chemicals. It is a natural alternative to memory foam. The internal structure of a latex pad e allows it to disperse heat, making it cooler and more comfortable to sleep on in the summer than man made foam.
ARE METAL SPRINGS ORGANIC?
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
