PreferredFuton is the best supplier of futon matresses and contemporary furniture in New York and Tri-State area.
If you have ever heard the expression “Sleeping on a cloud, ” and you wanted to actually feel that sensation, then the all wool futon is for you. Wool is extremely resilient and therefore provides great support. Wool is a naturally flame retardant fiber, thereby allowing it to pass the FR Standard cigarette tests. Wool is light. A six inch thick, full size 100% wool futon weighs a mere 38 pounds as opposed to an all cotton weight of about 56 to 60 pounds. Rigidity is superior but flexibility is almost non-existent.
Polyester has been around the bedding industry for years, and currently more and more futon mattress manufacturers are using this synthetic fiber. Like foam, polyester is usually an additional fiber, added to the all cotton futon. This addition is handled in several ways. Some manufacturers place 100% poly batting within the cotton batts during the construction of the mattress itself, while others combine the polyester with the cotton in the garnett and produce “blended” batts (Wolf Corp’s Endura Blend is a fine example of a cotton/poly blended batt). These futons are lighter by 10 to 15 pounds than the all cotton product, in fact several companies produce 100% polyester mattresses that are half the weight of an all cotton futon
To categorize each futon mattress configuration Preferred Futon will examine it in relation to the following properties or criteria: weight, firmness, rigidity, and flexibility.
