The cover is equally important in a premium all natural latex mattress...
It can be easy to overlook the broad spectrum of materials used to make latex mattress covers. Very basic, cheap materials make the price look good, but do nothing to improve the feel or performance of the latex mattress.
Wool presents a naturally breathable and anti-microbial medium, quilted to organic cotton covers, in the best natural latex mattresses. It's a natural fire-retardant, meaning no chemicals in your mattress cover!
Wool is unmatched in its ability to control body temperature, providing a restful nights sleep. Look for the highest quality natural wool when purchasing a natural latex mattress. Organic cotton breaths well and is very environmentally friendly.

Benefits of Natural Wool
Wool 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.
