This case enables you to start small and plan to grow. You purchased enough fill to fill 3″ of ticking, but you know that later when the budget allows or when the child grows heavier, you’ll want to deepen the mattress. This case can grow with you.
Designed with a double zipper to reveal 3″ more of fabric folded into the sidewall when you’re ready to insert another slab of latex. That way you do not have to buy a second piece of ticking for that second or third or fourth slab. Perfect for a child or a topper turned into a mattress. To explain further, imagine you bought one slab of latex for a topper on your guest bed because your mother-in-law was coming into town and the bed really needed something to spruce it up. But you bought the topper knowing that your child was soon going to be inheriting the guest bed as his mattress was falling apart. However, not having the immediate need to buy the two slabs of latex which would be comfortable for your 15 year old, you bought an expandable ticking that could fit both one slab just as nicely as two slabs. When the time came to buy that second slab, you didn’t need to buy a second piece of ticking to wrap the slab in. Instead you merely unzipped the second zipper on the ticking to reveal 3” more of fabric that was folded around the four sidewalls of the mattress.
The case opens, as do all of ours, like a book with a three-sided zipper. This ticking is preshrunk and is machine washable.
A puddle pad and ticking combined into one. This ticking enables all the convenience of moisture protection, right where you need it, on the top. The needle felted wool is sewn with a four-sided separating zipper so the wool layer can completely zip off for hand washing, leaving the sides of the ticking still on your mattress. There is no need to move your heavy layers of latex to wash this ticking since the top layer is easily accessible.
This mattress case is less expensive and certainly more convenient than buying a puddle pad and ticking separately.
