CARING FOR A NATURAL MATTRESS
Temperature regulating, naturally flame resistant, softly supportive are only a few of the benefits of having a all natural mattress filling. Our British made Tiny Dreamer Natural mattress range is hand stuffed with certified organic coconut coir & 100% lambs wool.
This is a guide recommended for parents who have purchased our Tiny Dreamer Natural mattress and wish to know a little more about how to care for a mattress with an all natural filling. Wool based mattresses require regular maintenance, including flipping and rotating, in order to maintain their shape and prevent sagging.
Read through the mattress guide that arrives your mattress, put into action the immediate recommendations. Your mattress may also have compressed slightly during the delivery process; try leaving it for a good hour before putting on fresh sheets and fling open your windows to increase air circulation and it will quickly bounce back into shape.
You may notice a slight odour when removing your mattress from its packaging. This is normal, as the mattress is filled with entirely natural materials in particularly the organic lambswool. This smell will fade over time & should be noted that it is completely harmless. We recommend airing it out once every week to make sure that it's effectively desorbing and releasing any moisture.
Another recommendation is to leave your mattress (without the mattress cover) in the direct sunlight for 3-4 hours.
Using 100% natural fibre sheets such as organic cotton help your mattress breathe as well.
Your mattress will adapt to the weight and contours of your body; rotating your mattress from foot to end will keep the filling even and extend the life of your mattress. Rotating a mattress is a two-person job, so get some help. Wool filled mattresses can be quite heavy, which can make them difficult to move or flip on your own.
Settlement is normal
You may notice after a few weeks of use that the sleeping areas are wearing more quickly than the rest of the mattress. Don't panic! Mattresses with very soft, natural layers do naturally compress slightly and it's a sign of a high quality fill. You can minimise this settlement by regularly rotating your mattress.
Fibres dipping is completely natural and cannot be avoided, as is wear and tear of the natural fabrics.
