The Mattress Pad by Vispring is designed to provide protection between your pocket-spring mattress and the slatted base of your bedstead, extending the life of your mattress and enhancing comfort. The wool mattress pad sits underneath the mattress, on top of the slatted base, and attaches to the base with string ties and eyelets that run down the side of the mattress pad.
The Vispring mattress pad is entirely breathable (which is great news for your all natural mattress), and acts as a tough layer avoiding friction (wear and tear) between the mattress and the slatted base. It also stops any moisture from the wooden slats (which might be undetectable by the eye) entering your mattress or for any splinters to work their way into the mattress.
To ensure maximum comfort and performance, we recommend that bedstead slats should be no more than 8cm apart when using a pocket spring mattress.
The Vispring mattress pad should not be confused with the mattress protector, which covers the top of the mattress and is designed to stop any bodily moisture or spillages entering the mattress.
We highly recommend using both a mattress protector and a mattress pad to properly protect your mattress.
