The kapok tree is also known as the silk cotton tree. The name says it all. Our kapok mattress is silky soft. When you purchase a Moonboon baby hammock, the kapok mattress comes with it.
Kapok is a very good natural fiber, which is why I have chosen it for Moonboon’s pillows, duvets and mattresses.
Nobody sleeps well if they are freezing or sweating, not adults and not babies. The good thing about kapok is that it can automatically adjust to a body temperature. Kapok is a hypoallergenic, temperature regulating, breathable natural fiber that consists of organic, sustainably grown plant fibers from the kapok tree. Kapok has antibacterial qualities, so house dust mites and other pests cannot survive in the mattress. This means that your child always sleeps in a clean bed, which I think is something special. At the same time, the fibers are silky soft and in my mind that makes kapok even more exclusive. Who does not want to sleep on an ultra-soft surface?
The kapok mattress is 90 cm long and 35 cm wide. When you purchase a baby hammock, the kapok mattress comes with it.
KAPOK IS HYPOALLERGENIC AND ORGANIC
Kapok is 100% organic. No herbicides, pesticides or other chemicals are used in its production. For people interested in hypoallergenic materials, kapok is the natural choice.
OUR KAPOK MATTRESS IS ANTIBACTERIAL
Kapok fibers contain wax, lignin and bitter substances. It is the only natural fiber that is naturally resistant to mold and pesticides. Its antibacterial qualities mean that house dust mites cannot live in kapok, and this makes it especially well-suited for babies.
KAPOK IS TEMPERATURE REGULATING
Kapok fiber consists of 80% air. It is eight times lighter than cotton, making it the lightest natural fiber in the world. The airy fibers make kapok an absorbent material that has insulating and heat-regulating qualities. This helps ensure that your baby has a comfortable sleep.
This light and airy fiber structure makes kapok breathable. Its moisture wicking quality means that moisture is not absorbed in the material, but is drawn away from the body through the air spaces. There is not a sensation of moisture that can be felt in products made of cotton, down, linen or wool. Instead, your baby will have a very dry and pleasant night’s sleep.
WASHING AND CLEANING YOUR KAPOK MATTRESS
The kapok mattress cannot be washed with water. It is good for the fibers to air out the mattress outdoors about once a month in dry weather.
