Drill Fabric

Cotton Drill fabric is 100% cotton and the natural properties are that it’s natural and hard wearing.

For over 40 years 100% Drill is in use as the “standard”  go to fabric. The uses include futon mattress covers and removable top covers for futon mattresses.

  • The main properties are that it’s extremely durable and is washable at low temperatures i.e. 30 degrees. It’s important to remember that if you do wash your removable top cover it should be air dried naturally and never put in a tumble dryer or similar as it will shrink.
  • Versatile, colour fast and easy to spot clean 100% Drill is available in x 9 colours currently. Unfortunately Lime Drill is out of stock.
  • Besides using 100% Cotton Drill for mattress casings and top covers another use we find customers like is “piping”. Piping can be eye pleasing and a pleasant decorative touch on cushions and bolsters as well as the other places mentioned.
  • Natural fibres are soft to touch and pleasant on skin. Cotton is probably the most versatile yarn in use in the futon industry today.

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.

First Love

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.

Other Love

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.
