A mattress pad is considered essential bedding. It will protect mattress you invested in for years to come.
Why should you use a mattress pad?
The obvious answer is that the pad will keep your mattress visibily clean. It will also protect your mattress from a buildup of grimy microscopic pileup of skin oils, sweat, hair products, dust and dead skin cells. Plus any liquid you might spill on the mattress. A mattress pad will help keep your sleeping surface sanitary.
There are really two organic options for mattress pads:
Wool Mattress Pad – The weave of a wool mattress pad makes moisture bead on the surface. We wouldn’t say its moisture proof, but a wool pad is very moisture resistant. Pure wool pads should be hand washed, if it is machine washed on delicate you may experience some shrinkage.
Organic Cotton Mattress Pad – Very simple and machine washable. The pad will protect against all the dirt and grime mentioned above.
We also carry non organic wool mattress pads that are moisture proof and machine washable. They still offer wool’s great breathability resulting in maintained core body temperatures without overheating. The wool is treated with a biowash that allows it to be washable.
