This mattress pad is made with natural alpaca and wool fibre. The 260 Thread Count organic cotton fabric surface is tufted from top to bottom with Crescent Moon Duvet & Pillow Co.'s signature crescent moons to ensure consistency and comfort throughout. The alpaca / wool batting and the organic cotton surface fabric are naturally resistant to dust mites and other environmental impurities. With two functions in one, this mattress pad provides both protection and comfort for a cleaner mattress and a surface that is softer.
To protect your alpaca / wool mattress pad, Crescent Moon Duvet & Pillow Co. recommends the use of sheets at all times. Alpaca wool loves fresh air and sunshine and will re-loft when left outside for the day. With care, this mattress pad is machine washable. Carefully follow the directions below to ensure the security of your product.
Front Load Washer (recommended): Choose the “ultra hand wash” or “wool wash” cycle of your washer, then choose “light”. Use only cold water and a mild natural soap. When your machine has stopped you can run it again on a spin cycle to make sure most of the water is spun out. Then hang your mattress pad to dry.
Top Load Washer (extra large tub): Fill your machine with cool water and cleaner. Add the product, let it soak for 5 to 10 minutes and then plunge it up and down by hand to clean it. Turn the dial to spin and spin the water out. Allow the machine to fill again for the rinse but stay with the machine so you can stop it before it begins to agitate. Plunge up and down again and then turn your dial to spin. Hang your item to dry. Do not put in a dryer.
Dry Cleaning: Crescent Moon Duvet & Pillow Co. does not recommend dry cleaning - the dryers tend to be too hot for the fibre.
