Traditional Futon Mattresses.



Here at the Futon Shop we have recently been asked, severel times, for traditional futon mattresses. That is, futon mattresses filled with a simple combination of cotton to the top and bottom of the mattress and a filling of woolfelt inbetween; i.e. no polyester or foam. Many customers have commented that they have slept on this type of futon mattress for years and have been having trouble sourcing a replacement, as most futon mattresses now feature polyester or foam as a 'core'. Well, the polyester / foam 'cores' were developed to give more 'rebound' to the futon mattress, particularly when used on a futon frame for sitting as the 'cores' helped to keep the futon mattress upright on the frame, i.e. it prevented the futon mattress from 'sagging' on the frame, a welcome addition I'm sure you'll agree. Anyway when the mattress is being used purely on a bed frame then we agree that a traditional mix of cotton and woolfelt provides a 'firm but supportive' feel for those customers seeking a traditional style futon mattress, and we have therefore decided to offer this product on our website at http://www.futons247.co.uk/ just follow the link below to the product page.

  1. The nice thing about these mattresses is that the wool acts as a natural fire retardant.
