When it comes to finding the perfect mattress, the outer fabric covering is just as important as the inner layers. The fabric cover protects the mattress from spills and stains, as well as provides a soft and comfortable surface for sleeping. One key factor to consider when evaluating a mattress cover is the density of the fabric. A higher density means the fabric is more durable and resistant to wear and tear. This is often measured in grams per square meter (GSM) and can be easily checked when shopping for a mattress. In addition to durability, it’s important to pay attention to the softness of the fabric. A scratchy or itchy fabric cover can disrupt your sleep and lead to discomfort. You want a cover that feels cozy and inviting. Lastly, look for a fabric that is temperature neutral. This means it won’t make you too hot or too cold while you sleep, which is crucial for maintaining good quality of sleep.
A woven or knit textile, fabric or ticking is the final, outer cover of a mattress. At Sikoala, there is a wide range of bold or colorful options. Aside from looks, ticking has evolved in its purpose. They are designed to increase the durability and longevity of a mattress, as well as increase comfort and overall health in sleep.
