Futons and mattresses without fire-retardant chemicals
Natural fibers used in our mattresses
Natural plant fibers like cotton or natural animal fibers like wool, which we use in our mattresses, allow us to improve your comfort. While synthetic fibers like polyester don’t breathe much, natural fibers regulate the temperature and keep the body dry during sleep so you can enjoy a better comfort and better sleep. That way, the natural fibers also keep you warmer during the winter and keep you cool during the summer.
Eucalyptus fiber and wool absorb up to 30% of its own weight in humidity. Our sweating are absorbed during the night so the body is dryer. Unlike the popular beliefs that the wool would be really hot during summer, it is actually more likely to have good nights during warn periods by keeping our body dry and, then, keeping you cool. By reducing the humidity, our body is also warmer during the winter.
In addition to its unrivalled comfort, these fibers are components of most of our best mattresses to respect the Canadian flammability requirements which apply to the mattresses and to the futons. Cheaper futons have polyester instead.
The wool and Eucalyptus fiber hardly catch fire, and when they do, they don’t liberate toxic gas. That way, it is a retardant much superior to the polyester, which needs to be in bigger quantity for the same results.
