Camelhair fiber is ideal for a winter mattress filling since it has a structure that retains heat. Its hygroscopic properties absorb the moisture released by the body and help evaporation, keeping the micro climate consistently dry and pleasant.
Cashmere is a very soft animal fiber that withstands dirt and, above all, dust. Its extraordinary capacity to trap air gives it a high degree of heat insulation which ensures constant warmth even in winter months.
Wool is the most ancient animal fiber, it has heat-regulating properties and excellent breathability which allow continuous airflow leaving the skin cool and dry. Another significant property of wool is that it absorbs the moisture in excess, thus keeping a constant body temperature during rest.
Merino wool is shorn from the best breeds of sheep and is one of the highest quality animal fibers. Extremely fine and soft to the touch, it has heat-regulating properties and excellent breathability which leaves the skin free to breathe.
Horsehair is a fiber that has been used since antiquity to stuff beds and mattresses due to its incredible resiliency and elasticity. Horsehair does not lose its natural flexibility and rapidly regains its original shape, ensuring the same degree of comfort over time. Thanks to its hygroscopic qualities, the fiber absorbs moisture and ensures that the body remains cool and dry.
Linen is the most suitable fiber for filling the summer side of a mattress because it offers a fresh sensation when in contact with the skin. Thanks to its molecular structure, linen manages to absorb the moisture released by the body during sleep, enabling it to evaporate.
Cotton is a soft yet hardwearing plant fiber. The most salient characteristics of cotton are its breathability, which keeps it fresh when in contact with the skin and its structure which absorbs a great deal of moisture to helps keep the skin dry.
Silk is certainly the finest and strongest natural fiber, with great mechanical strength and elasticity, even though it stays soft and pleasant to the touch. One of the most loved fabrics in the world, silk is an excellent insulator that keeps you warm in winter and cool in the summer.
Due to its chemical and physical composition, goose feathers can regulate the body’s microclimate. They hold a large volume of air and keep the body’s temperature constant with respect to the outside environment, leaving the skin free to breathe. Goose feathers consist of clusters of filaments which grow from a central quill, ensuring elasticity and lift.
Goose down controls the body’s microclimate, keeping the body at a constant temperature and leaving the skin free to breathe. Due to its structure, which is smaller and softer than feathers, goose down is light but provides enough volume to give incredibly comfortable support.
