Please find described below details of our choice of futon fillings. If you have any questions regarding filling types please call us on 01752 662030.
Although cotton was used in the traditional futons in the past, it had a tendency to matt down and produce lumps. We now use a pure cotton filling blended with a small amount of polyester fibres. This product has all the advantages of cotton, but the polyester reduces the matting and compression process.
We hope you will be pleased with the end result. We now use cotton-felt layers throughout our futons, giving you all the advantages of cotton whilst minimising the matting down. This product uses mainly pure cotton and is therefore more expensive than the wool-felt mixes commonly used in the bedding industry but offers better comfort and durability, we hope you'll agree its well worth it!.
We use a top and bottom layer of pure lambswool on all our futon mattresses to wrap the main layers. This is used both to conform to UK fire regulations and to provide a smooth and gentle surface for the outer of you futon mattress. The lambswool is a natural and un-treated product and therefore can have a 'woolly' smell to it when new, this tends to dissipate over the first few weeks of use.
A great choice of filling style for two seat futon sofa beds. The FlexiPocket uses a top and bottom layer of pure lambswool and then features a central layer of micro pocket springs encased in four layers of cotton-felt. This futon mattress provides a softer, but supportive, feel with a durable filling designed for regular use. Suitable for two seat futon frames.
If you need a firm and durable futon filling for everyday use then the Ultimate is a great choice. Top and bottom layers of lambswool surround layers of cotton-felt with one central layer of rebound polyester and another of polished thread polyester, helping to keep your futon mattress standing correctly on the frame when in regular use. Suitable for use on three seat style futon sofa bed frames only.
A luxury feel with a softer sit and sleep is provided by the Pocket Sprung futon mattress, perfect for everyday use. The mattress is filled top and bottom with a layer of lambswool, then layers of cotton-felt and finished with a central 4 cm pocket spring cage providing great 'rebound' in the futon for a softer feel. Suitable for use on our three seat futon sofa beds and bed frames.
