Futon-mattresses are greatly appreciated for their versatility. In Japan futons are typically spread on tatami-floors for sleeping at night and during the day they are rolled up to free space and use the room for different purposes. Futons can of course very well also be used in beds with slats or tatami bases.
The batting of our Futon Wool Slim consists of with 6 layers pure virgin wool. Wool is naturally highly breathable and helps dissipate the moisture the body produces while sleeping. The soft yet sustained support that this material offers enables the body to relax completely and enjoy deeper and longer stages of sleep.
It's thin height also makes this mattress an ideal for the practice of treatments such as massages or shiatzu and it can be easily rolled up and set aside when not in use.
If you perfer a thicker futon with wool batting we recommend the Futon Wool Medium or the Futon Wool Comfort.

The futon cover is available in different colors, which you will find in the above selection. The hand made step-stitching and edge seams are the same color as the cover of the futon. We recommend to add the practical fabric lateral handles, so that the futon can be moved more easily. These are sewed to both sides of the futon.
Futons are quilted mattresses so you cannot remove the cover. Possible stains will have to be removed with a stain remover. To better protect your Futon, we recommend to add the removable cover which opens on three sides. You will find this in the Accessories section. The removable cover is made of ecru cotton just like the quilted futon cover and it can be ordered in a different color.
Further we recommend to turn the futon over from time to time, so that the layers of wool maintain an even density throughout the mattress. The futon should also occasionally be rolled up and put to air out, to allow it to release any humidity absorbed over time. It´s best to repeat this operation at every change of season.
Arpel mattresses are made of high-quality virgin wool and with proper care they will last up to 10 years.
