Why We Use Cotton In Our Mattress
Cotton is a natural fibre that comes from the seedpods of the cotton plant, known scientifically as Gossypium. It is one of the most widely used and important fibres in the textile industry. Long-staple cotton varieties like Egyptian and Pima cotton are known for their exceptional softness and durability and are often used in high-end textiles. In contrast, shorter-staple cotton varieties are more common in everyday clothing and linens.
Cotton has excellent moisture-wicking properties, meaning it can absorb and disperse moisture away from the body. This can help keep you dry and comfortable throughout the night, reducing the potential for night sweats.
Cotton is a natural, biodegradable material, which means it breaks down naturally in the environment, reducing its impact on landfills when the mattress reaches the end of its life.
One of our mattresses that has a layer of Cotton inside is The Sandman.
