One of the most common questions we get asked is if we offer a 'traditional' style futon mattress. Generally this question is being posed by people who are used to sleeping on a futon mattress and have been doing so for many years.
Generally these people are sleeping on well worn and compressed futons that are filled with, mainly, cotton, wool or most commonly woolfelt, the 'greyish' filling you'll see in most types of traditional futon mattress. This type of futon mattress will generally be providing their owners with a firm but supportive sleep and it's this type of futon 'feel' that we offer with our Traditional 8-Layer futon mattress.
Our traditional 8-layer futon features a top and bottom layer of pure lambswool and, quite simply, 6 layers of woolfelt inbetween. When new and fresh out of the bag this type of futon may feel a little 'squishy' but the design and type of the fillings ensures that, with use, the futon mattress will compress down and firm up. You often find that the compression initially takes place in the area you are sleeping in creating a 'people shaped' dent which, over time, evens up across the futon mattress surface.
The traditional futon mattress can be used on wood slatted bed frames, tatami mats or directly onto a wood or carpeted floor and remains as one of our most popular choices for everyday sleeping. Please feel free to visit our website to contact us for further information and advice.
