So you want a 100% all-natural, completely botanical latex mattress. You want it for its comfort, as well as the fact that it is hypoallergenic, dust mite-free, and antibacterial. Great! So what do you want your 100% all-natural latex mattress to be covered with so you can really benefit from latex’s great qualities?
You want a cover for your natural latex mattress that is breathable. A wool or wool blend is a great choice. Make sure there are no fire retardant chemicals in the cover. It is possible to avoid unwanted chemicals and still pass fire retardant standards with the right “sock” covering the mattress. You also want to make sure that you do not have a cover that is excessively thick or quilted so that you can feel what you are paying for: 100% all-natural latex.
