We designed the Back Care Plus Futon Mattress for anyone seeking a comfortable, affordable handmade wool mattress built with sustainable and green eco-friendly materials. We have chosen Wool over synthetic fibers for its benefits and chemical free compound along with a hybrid-foam partially made with Soy Bean Oil to create a safer more durable option. Our Back Care Plus Natural Wool Futon Mattress is machine tufted with 50-70 tufts depending on the size to ensure your materials in your futon mattress do not shift during use. This back care plus mattress is one of our most popular futon sleeper mattresses for customers needed firm cushioning.
FIRM - EXTRA FIRM mattresses and futons are ideal for back sleepers and tummy sleepers alike. Firm and extra firm mattresses offer back and tummy sleepers support to the right parts of your body.
Proper spinal and hip alignment is critical in the prevention of tossing and turning which leads to sleep disruption. The firmer support of our futons and mattresses offer a more neutral-spine position during sleep.
Sleeping on a firm or extra firm bed allows your bones to become aligned. Alleviating some, if not all, of the pressure, thus allowing your muscles, arteries and veins to relax. As a result, the blood circulation in the body improves, helping you sleep better.
Another benefit to a firm or extra firm mattress. Is that it prevents your lower back from collapsing when you lay on it. Ensuring your breathing is not constricted, and supplying your body with more oxygen, which is crucial for good sleep.
Sleep like a baby. Wool offers your body ultimate temperature control, muscle relaxation and deeper REM sleep,and is a natural fire retardant. Our mattresses contain nothing but natural and organic wool to create the fire resistants needed to pass all fire-retardant requirements.
The cotton we use in our mattresses and futons is a American grown natural fiber, elegantly lightweight, soft and supple to the touch. Cotton is naturally breathable, allowing for air circulation, and doesn’t tend to irritate the skin. Cotton is a firm fiber when used in our beds and in time packs down to create a firm sleeping surface.
Hybrid Soy-foam ads strength and comfort support as well as long-lasting durability to our futon mattresses. The high resistant foam made partially from soybeans ads consistent weight distribution for comfort and long life.
