Donate/Recycle/Dispose/Resell - High quality Latex and wool topper 12 Aug 2019 14:02 #12

It's raw. Was being used as part of a DIY mattress, but I abandoned that project. It's now covered in a fitted sheet and kind of rolled up on the floor.

I think we just do not personally like the feel of latex overall. We went from a traditional high-quality innerspring mattress that was quite old but still in perfect condition, and to this day regret getting rid of it.

Yes, we currently are using the top and bottom latex layers from the Obasan, but are considering purchasing and replacing those components, as I feel like we might have a better chance of selling a complete mattress rather than individual latex layers!

Hello mattress4life,

Another option besides trying to sell the items is to repurpose them. For example, you can cut the latex for chair cushions, layer it for couch cushions or shred it for pillows. I know some who have shredded it for chair cushions, in that loose form they also have needed to add a tuft or two to help it keep its shape.

The wool can be turned into a pillow or a comforter. St. Peter Woolen Mill can wash and recard your wool for you. See recarding here: www.woolenmill.com/products-services/

The wool can also be turned into roving and used for hand crafts. Wool dyes well with readily available dyes like koolaid. Felting is a very popular craft with wool and pretty simple. Here is one craft you can make with wool: lincolnshirefenncraftsblog.com/2019/02/0...edle-felt-a-picture/ A much more simple one would be the popular wool dryer balls. www.thinking-about-cloth-diapers.com/make-wool-dryer-balls.html
