If you are looking for a new mattress, the amount of choice available can sometimes be overwhelming. There are so many different product types with so many different fillings.
At Ely, we are passionate about using natural materials in our mattresses. The materials we use to make our mattresses are all environmentally friendly and locally sourced, and include wool, cashmere, and cotton. We also use an essential product, horsehair, when making our mattresses, which provides several amazing benefits.
In this article, we will talk through the many benefits of sleeping on a horsehair mattress, and why using this filling has helped Ely become a premium mattress seller.
We understand that one of the most important qualities for a customer when it comes to any mattress is comfort. The reason horsehair is such a perfect choice for a mattress filling is its ability to provide maximum comfort. Horsehair is hand-teased and has the ability to act like small springs that adjust and contour to a person’s body. It also holds its support well. This means it is incredibly durable and your mattress will keep its shape over time. If you invest in a mattress that uses horsehair, it’s going to last for many years.
Not only does Horsehair provide comfort and top-level support, but it is often viewed as one of the most luxurious mattress fillings in modern day society. The quality of this product has been well known for hundreds of years, with horsehair often used for mattresses for members of the royal family throughout the ages. You know a filling is good quality when it is most likely the filling for the mattress the Queen of England sleeps on! Yes, it is that top quality!
Fungal spores can cause allergies at night. Common symptoms may include sneezing, coughing, or itchy eyes. Fillings such as foam or polyester can create a moist, humid environment that is the perfect home for the growth of fungal spores. Horsehair is great at ventilation and will keep your mattress dry. This prevents the development of fungal spores in your mattress.
The process of making horsehair a top-quality mattress filling involves it being washed, steamed, and rinsed before being used. This clears it of most allergens without the need for harmful chemicals, such as bleach. With these allergens eliminated, horsehair mattresses are a lot less likely to aggravate allergies or conditions such as asthma.
Common mattresses, such as those made from memory foam, can cause temperature problems. This is because fillings such as foam have the inability to take away body heat. Because we use horsehair, our mattresses will regulate your body temperature as you sleep, and allow your body to breathe.
Horse hairs are hollow, which allows the filling to funnel air through the batting. This helps to ventilate a mattress and keep the air free flowing. Having natural properties, it increases the circulation of air, which makes the mattress breathable. This will encourage a cool and comfortable sleep.
Wicks Away Moisture
The body releases moisture in the night, which can often get absorbed by your mattress. This can create various issues if your mattress is unable to regulate moisture. Horsehair is the perfect solution for this as it has the ability to wick away moisture, the same way a horse can withstand a rainy day. A lack of moisture will help avoid any unpleasant odours omitting from your mattress and will help prevent nasties such as dust mites.
When it comes to your mattress, health and safety is an important factor. Many mattresses, such as those made from polyester, have fire retardant chemicals added to avoid the risk of combustion. Horsehair is a natural fire-resistant product, which means you can be sure our mattresses are safe, without the need for unnecessary and potentially harmful chemicals.
