Moisture, mildew, and dust mite resistant – as well as thermal regulating – Premium Organic Wool, a blend of wool gathered from eight different sheep breeds, creates a protective barrier around the organic cotton core of the Organic Cotton & Wool Futon, giving you a longer lasting mattress that is supremely comfortable.
Our futons are encased in 100% organic cotton twill.
Soaring Heart's Organic Cotton & Wool Futons make great organic mattresses for anyone who enjoys the classic firm feel of a futon or is trying to better utilize their space. An organic futon can, which make them perfect for studios, small apartments, multipurpose rooms, or a comfy, healthy guest bed (for use in a sofa set-up we recommend the Organic Cotton, Latex & Wool Futon, because the organic latex core reduces creasing where the futon folds – that “fold crease” can make other futons less comfortable when slept on).
Futons are 7" - 8" thick when new and compress to 6" - 7" with use.
All of our organic mattresses, futons, and shikibutons fully meet federal flame retardant guidelines (1632 and 1633) and pass all tests without the use of any synthetic or chemical fire retardants whatsoever; no PBDE's, no boric acid powder, no nothin’ - just organic cotton and wool. There are no prescriptions needed or hoops to jump through, just peace of mind that you are on the safest, healthiest, and most comfortable mattress available.
At full, original loft, the layers of organic wool that make up each Soaring Heart futon measure 24” tall, give or take, only compressing down to the more familiar seven inches after passing through the skilled hands of our craftspeople. Once slept on for a while, your new organic futon will settle down to six or seven inches.
All Soaring Heart organic futons are handmade from only the highest quality, locally sourced, organic materials using time honored techniques practiced, honed and perfected over the past 30 years. You can expect your new organic futon to last you anywhere from eight to fifteen years, depending upon how well you maintain it. Futons require occasional flipping so that they wear evenly. This reduces body impressions, which, unfortunately, can make a futon less comfortable over time - regardless of the beauty of the impressioning body.
