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 fold, 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).

When we say all natural and organic, we mean it. Since 1982 Soaring Heart Natural Bed Company has been making mattresses and bedding using time-tested techniques, honed and polished over three decades. Soaring Heart makes everything by hand and uses only the highest quality, certified organic, materials available.
Soaring Heart works closely with our suppliers. We travel to their operations, getting to know them and their materials. We collaborate with our suppliers so we can meet and exceed our exacting standards. We take huge pride in our products and in all the people behind them.
It's because of these special relationships with our suppliers and their wonderful organic wool, organic latex, organic cotton and their commitment to upholding organic certifications that we aren’t forced to spoil our products with chemicals or synthetics. No Soaring Heart product has any chemical-based foam or synthetic fire retardants whatsoever.
Our latex is made from pure rubber tree sap, we use organic wool as our fire barrier and it is selected from only the finest sheep farms in New Zealand, and our Cotton is 100% organically grown in the cotton fields of Texas. Nothing but good, honest organic materials provided by good, honest people.
The wool and cotton encasements in this product are GOTS certified.
We recommend all futons and shikibutons be kept off the floor. Latex and innerspring mattress need to be kept on slats. Not keeping your latex or innerspring mattress on a slatted frame or foundation will void its warranty.
The more air that can circulate around all surfaces of your natural bed, the better. When not exposed to air, cotton can begin to mildew because the temperature difference between your body heat passing through the futon and the relative coldness of a non-breathable surface (the floor, solid plywood, etc...) can allow condensation to build up.
To prevent body moisture from getting into your bed (which can prematurely compress and harden the natural fibers and make your bed lumpy and uncomfortable), always sleep with one of our all natural organic cotton pads . Don't use a poly-blend pad. They aren't absorbent and can cause you to perspire more during sleep. Wash and dry your natural mattress pad with your sheets. Make sure the pad is completely dry before putting it back on your bed, and your mattress will stay clean and healthy for years to come.
Make sure your organic futon or shikibuton wears evenly (avoiding body impressions) by flipping and rotating it regularly, so you end up sleeping on all different parts of the bed equally. We recommend doing this once a week for the first month, then once every other week thereafter.
A couple times a year, on a sunny day, put your futon, shikibuton, or topper outside in the sun for an hour or two on each side. It's like giving your bed a natural dry-cleaning. The sun fluffs and revitalizes the fibers, discourages microbial growth, and evaporates any residual moisture. Does not apply to latex - latex can be deteriorated by sunlight.
Even if you lovingly follow all the steps listed above, there may come a day when your natural bed doesn't feel quite as comfortable as it originally did. In that case, feel free to click the button below to send us information about your product so we can schedule a revitalization time. Often times, all that's necessary to bring new life to your faithful futon is a few new layers of cotton or wool, and that can cost significantly less than a new bed. We do need to see it in person so we can assess what needs to be done, but once we figure it out we can usually finish the revitalization that same day.
For customers outside the Seattle Area who want to ship the item for revitalization services, simply put the item in a box, pay for shipping to our Seattle location and we will pay the shipping to return your revitalized item to you .
I love my new organic wool and cotton futon. Over the years we have purchased all our beds from Soaring Heart.
feels good to sleep in clean material. No foam.
I give this futon mattress an A+ for materials but a D for comfort and functionality. While I am very happy knowing the cotton and wool are organic, they’re unfortunately not supportive enough. Despite regularly flipping and rotating the mattress, you can feel the slats of the frame so much that it feels like sitting/laying on a hard wooden bench with a cushion immediately upon laying down. It can’t really be used folded since the top half sags below the back of the frame and the bottom half is prone to developing a sagging cushion problem after a couple days (where the fill feels uneven after a day or two of flipping and you lean to one side when sitting instead of sitting flat). We kept it anyway since between the return shipping and restocking fee it would have cost hundreds to return it, so we’re just going to be uncomfortable until we save up for something else.
My husband and I purchased the crib set for our daughter. The mattress was beautiful. The sheets a crisp organic. The tiny pillow, adorable and the woven organic blanket was my favorite part. It's large enough to grow with your babe and the perfect level of thickness. So all in all, very satisfied with our purchase. Now all we have to do is get her to sleep on it :D
I love that I am not inhaling and touching toxins while I sleep but I do wish the futon was thicker especially given the cost. I can feel the bed boards. That makes it a bit difficult to sleep well. I really want firm but not the feeling of wooden planks.
