The 100% natural cotton top mattress pad is quilted with 7 ounces of premium polyester fiber. It is designed for use under your sheets. It has a deep elastic skirt to fit all mattress thicknesses. This mattress pad is quite inexpensive but very effective at reducing heat common to foam mattresses and memory foam mattress pads. The polyester quilting will reduce heat by 35% in memory foam mattresses and toppers. Since most foam mattresses sleep warm, this mattress pad makes a big difference. It, typically, doesn't lessen the feel or support of our memory foam mattresses. This quilted mattress pad adds a layer of protection: it will give you time to quickly strip your bedding and sheets if something spills on your bed, so the spill won't soak directly through the sheets and into your new mattress. The pad also helps prevent body hair from entering the mattress. Since we do not accept returns on mattresses with body hair, this is an important addition. These mattress pads can be used on any mattress you select and therefore may not be returned.
Mattress pad material of high quality may cost more but lasts much longer. This mattress pad is made from thick luxurious USA grown certified organic cotton. It has a 15" skirt (also organic cotton) with elastic around the bottom edge. When we designed this product it was very important that it be machine washable/dryable and be able to last for many years. In fact, this organic cotton mattress pad is sewn large and needs to be washed on hot and dried on hot before using, in order to shrink it to the proper approximate size. We strongly recommend using this mattress pad over the wool puddle pad mattress protector to help protect your mattress from spills.
