Our Eight Layers LD futon mattress feels medium firm. Its firmness or softness is subjective and it is only in comparison to other futon mattresses.
Low Density Foam
We use 4 layers of low-density foam in this mattress and each layer is one inch in thickness. The type of foam we use in this mattress is standard polyurethane foam. Its density is one pound per board foot.
Low density refers to weight and volume ratio. It is similar to fluffy bread. This low density foam has more air pockets between its molecules and this is the reason it is less durable compared to high density foam.
We have 4 layers of 100% pure virgin cotton batting inside this mattress. These are what give lumpiness to the futon mattress. However, the thickness of the mattress is not easy to measure due to the fluffy nature of cotton batt, but it is roughly 0.5” for each layer.
Two Sided Mattress
This futon mattress is two sided which means you can sit or sleep on both sides of the mattress. Therefore, you get longer wear from your investment.
Cover or casing, as we call it, of this mattress is canvas-like white fabric which is 100% polyester for durability. This cover acts as a casing to hold the contents of the mattress which are layers of foam and cotton.
You will find tuffing in the middle of the mattress, this tuffing is roughly 10” apart and it keeps the layers from shifting around. You can not take the casing off because of this permanent tuff.
We recommend using a mattress protector. However, if you intend to use this futon mattress as a sofa, then you may want to add a futon cover to accessorize its look.
This mattress is folded in half and one or two strings keep it in place. Also, it is inside a durable plastic bag.
