All Natural Latex
The fact that natural latex is a sustainable resource, produced from the rubber tree, is an attractive quality to many who are looking for alternatives in the materials that they utilize for their home environment.
The use of wool batting in organic covers with a latex mattress provides sufficient protection to by-pass the widespread use of the chemical fire-retardants that saturate most conventional inner-spring mattresses. The experience of sleeping on a high quality latex mattress is a reminder that nature often does know best!
Value of Natural Latex
Latex rubber is gathered from trees that "weep" a rubber sap. Rubber tree plantations provide not only employment for the local workers, but they also remove tons of carbon dioxide from the earth's atmosphere each year. It's interesting to note that it requires the daily output of 2500 trees to supply the necessary latex for a queen mattress core.

Benefits of Eco Wool
Organic wool battingWool batting creates an natural sleeping surface that is compliant with the current fire codes without the need for added chemical fire-retardants. Studies show that people sleeping with wool bedding have a lower heart rate, less sleep disturbance, and increased duration of beneficial REM sleep. Wool thermo-regulates and is remarkably comfortable in all seasons. In the winter it warms you without overheating or causing 'clamminess'. Conversely, in warmer seasons, it actually helps to keep you cool by wicking moisture away from your skin. This capability makes wool the ideal fiber for bedding as it helps your body to maintain a comfortable temperature throughout the night, regardless of the season.
