DIY latex cover suggestions for a cold sleeper 31 Mar 2015 18:57 #1

Sorry if this has been asked before... does anyone have any suggestions for the best mattress cover for a DIY latex mattress? We are putting together our mattress as we have the money (first getting a latex 3" topper to improve our current mattress...). What would be a good encasement for our "final product"? I see "plush" covers and then stretchy cotton covers... just for reference - I am a cold sleeper (at least for 3/4 of the night) and currently have a memory foam mattress and pillows. I have never been hot on the memory foam with just a velour cover and cheap mattress pad.

Thank you in advance!

Hi Bazinga,

Natural fibers such as wool are great for regulating temperature (in both directions) so I would probably consider either a cotton cover quilted with wool or a viscose/rayon cover (such as bamboo or a bamboo blend) quilted with wool. The better sources for zip mattress covers that include wool quilting I'm aware of are listed in the Topper/DIY component sources post here .
