Chenille futon covers protect your futon mattress, offer colour and smart decor
Chenille fabric is hard wearing, low maintenance and affordable. Futon covers offer a wide colour choice.
- Chenille is either yarn or fabric and usually manufactured from Cotton. That’s why we use it rather than a synthetic fibre.
- The Chenille yarn is made as follows. First of all we place short lengths of yarn, called the “pile”, between two “core yarns”. Then it is twisted together. The edges of these piles stand at right angles to the yarn’s core. This gives chenille both its softness and it’s characteristic look.
- This popular fabric has been in our range for about 20 years. We use it for Chenille futon covers. And furthermore as cushion covers, in different sizes.
Chenille will look different in one direction compared to another. This effect is because the fibres catch the light differently.
Chenille can appear iridescent without actually using iridescent fibres. To keep the fabric at its best, simply vacuum clean gently with a brush attachment
- The manufacturing process for Waffle Chenille is exactly the same as the other chenille fabric, the difference is that the pile has a coordinating warp and weft. This gives the chenille not only a very soft luxurious feel but also has a colour co-ordinated textured appearance. It is hard wearing and a firm favourite with customers
- Choose from the Oatmeal or Truffle Waffle Chenille which have a coordinating Cotton Drill on the reverse side.
- These waffle chenille fabrics can only be dry cleaned.

Love Your Futon
Essentially we feel it makes perfect sense to not just look after your futon but Love Your Futon. When you invest hundreds of pounds in a futon mattress get the best possible use from it. We insert a Care Leaflet with every futon mattress that we make. Therefore please take the time to digest the useful advice on the page. Furthermore as specialist futon mattress makers we want you to benefit from the sound sleep we hope it gives.
A few customers mention how thick the futon mattresses
are when they first arrive in a customer's home. We explain on the leaflet and also when they call that there's air in the layers of filling. As a result the futon has to be in use for a week or so before there's some settlement. This "bedding in" process is completely normal and most of all necessary to have an even surface.
While we want to get rid of the air at the beginning of the futon mattress's life, things move on. We very much hope the futon sits on a surface of slats. This is especially relevant as we want air to circulate around the mattress. If air circulates it will enable a drying out process to occur. We all sweat at night when we sleep and the moisture can reside in the filling and eventually create mould. Drying out the futon will prevent mould from growing. On a hot dry day take your futon outside and let it sit in the sun to get completely dry. An open window can help get the same effect.
After 7-9 years
I hope you will have much use from your wonderful comfy futon mattress. But probably after nearly a decade the time will be approaching when you have to say "goodbye" old friend.
