Comparing the stretch-knit mattress covers for all latex DIY

I have done more than my fair share of research, and here is what I've learned so far:
-1- Lots of Web sites sell an organic stretch-knit cotton cover, priced at around $190 or so for Queen. Note that many sites are selling products that are *not* 100pct cotton, and you really need to ask questions in order to find this out.
-2- Many sites also sell a more robust-looking cotton case that has wool quilted inside, and piping along the edges. Based on the recent post within this thread, I am concerned this surface might be too "firm" for me and that I would prefer the softness of the stretch cotton, but it stillI looks very nice.
-3- The Brentwood Home one mentioned is 10% bamboo, 90% polyester. I was told that they do not sell the (very nice) cases they use for the Natural mattresses.
My goal is to find something along the lines of that used by Avocado or Brentwood Home in their nicer mattresses -- heavy stretch-knit cotton with piping.

Hi. Could you let me know what type of glue you used to glue the layers? I don't want to use something that has an odor but not sure what will work. Thanks

Hey rddietrick,

Welcome to the TMU Forum and thanks for your question.

While I cannot answer your question regarding @Twoods196 previous post #9 response on gluing mattress layers together , perhaps a quick mention will let OP know of your interest. Hope this helps… ;)
