Green Cotton and Wool Dreamton Futon
Green Cotton & Wool Dreamton Futon
The Dreamton futon is our signature futon design, made in a variety of materials, sizes, and firmnesses for a feel that’s all luxury, and all about your preferences. With a soft yet supportive feel, our Green Cotton and Wool Dreamton is a little on the firmer side, but still more yielding than our Boulder Dreamton line — perfect for sleepers who like a medium-firm feel to their futon. With a fluffy Green Cotton core wrapped in our most luxurious natural wool, this futon is 100% natural and spring-free and doesn’t transfer motion between sleepers. It comes in all standard and custom sizes. They offer an organic and hypoallergenic alternative in every size.
What Is Green Cotton?
A more affordable option to our organic cotton products, our Green Cotton is grown in the United States — it just isn’t certified organic. This more affordable material is slightly firmer than organic cotton, but the real beauty is in what it doesn’t have:
NO flame retardants
Grown by farmers right here in the US, Green Cotton is a fabulous cost-saving material that doesn’t put you in contact with harmful chemicals typically found in conventional cotton.
Wool from Happy Sheep
Here at White Lotus Home, we hold our shepherds to the highest standards of quality and ethics. Our sheep are raised on rotating pastures to prevent erosion and overgrazing, and their beautiful wool is never treated with chemicals or flame retardants. Wrapped in a layer of the finest wool we source, the Dreamton futons are naturally antimicrobial and dust mite resistant, and require no flame-retardant chemical treatments to be safe. Wool is comfortable in the summer and winter, thanks to its natural insulative properties.
Sleeping on the Green Cotton and Wool Dreamton Futon
The Dreamton is a futon without springs, and as such won’t transfer motion between sleepers. We recommend putting it on a box spring set or platform bed, or on a bi-fold or tri-fold futon frame and even using it as a floor bed. A slatted bed frame is recommended for air circulation and the slats should be at least no more than 2" - 2.5" apart from each other. When the slats are more than 2.5" apart, that may affect the longevity and comfort of your futon. Supportive and soft, the Dreamton offers a medium-firm feel, in healthy and non-toxic materials you can feel good about curling up against.
What is the difference between a White Lotus Home Futon and a White Lotus Home Mattress?
You can watch this video about our Futon Mattresses but the differences between the two are simple:
1. A mattress is made standard at 6" thick, while a futon is 5" thick.
2. A mattress comes with side handles to help maneuver its size, but a futon is made without handles.
3. A mattress has side panels that give it a boxier shape, while a futon has rounded sides. These differences allow us to make futons out of the same high-quality material as mattresses, but for less cost. White Lotus Home mattresses can be made up to 8" inches thick.
All of our mattress options can be made in "Futon" and "Mattress" styles.

As they are raw, minimally processed fibers, our products cannot be completely submerged in water without damaging the fibers within. This includes pillows and duvets.
We recommend spot cleaning your White Lotus Home pillows, duvets, and bedding with a solution of 3 parts water to one part vinegar. Spray the solution onto the stain and expose to sunlight. Let dry and repeat until the stain fades and odors dissipate. You can also substitute vinegar with a mild laundry detergent. For surface stains, hydrogen peroxide works well for blood, whereas rubbing alcohol can help to remove oils from cosmetics.
Bedding should not remain damp, as it may encourage uneven wear or mold growth. Following a spill or cleaning, dry any moisture by placing the item in the sun or by using a hair dryer. Ensure it is fully dry before re-adding sheets or protective covers, such as our Organic Barrier Cloth Covers.
Some fibers, particularly kapok, can absorb the natural oils that keep our face and skin healthy. To restore loft and fluffiness, pillows may be placed in the dryer on the "Cold Air/ Fluff" setting for 15 to 20 minutes. Specially-designed wool dryer balls or clean tennis balls can aid in fluffing the inner fibers. To prevent any damage to the inner fibers, never use a heated setting.
Wool bedding, such as duvets and toppers, occasionally require special care. We recommend exposing it to direct sunlight and air once a month --- sunlight works as a natural sanitizer. If you prefer to send them to the cleaners, use a dry-cleaning process only. Never submerge wool bedding in water or place it in the washing machine, as this can cause irreversible felting of the wool.
Sheets and covers may be washed in cold water on a gentle cycle and dried on low, though line drying is preferable.
All of Coyuchi's cotton and linen products are machine washable. For whites and light colors: We recommend machine washing on the gentle or delicate cycle with warm water and non-phosphate soap. For dark colors: We recommend machine washing on gentle or delicate cycle with cold water and non-phosphate soap. Line dry, or tumble dry low and remove promptly. Use a warm iron on cotton, or a hot iron on linen, as needed. We do not recommend using whiteners as bleaching agents may diminish the brilliance and depth of the colors; when needed, use only non-chlorine bleach. Please refer to the product tag for more specific instructions. Place a set of our wool dryer balls inside the dryer to naturally soften the fabric and reduce drying time.
All Coyuchi organic cotton mattress pads are machine washable. We recommend machine washing on the gentle or delicate cycle with like colors, with cold water and a natural, plant based laundry detergent. We do not recommend using whiteners, as bleaching agents may diminish the brilliance and depth of the colors; when needed, use only non-chlorine bleach. Line dry, or tumble dry low and remove promptly. Fabric softeners and dryer sheets reduce the absorbency of cotton textiles and are not recommended. Place a set of wool dryer balls inside the dryer to naturally soften the fabric and reduce drying time. Use a warm iron as needed.

With proper care, your White Lotus Home mattress should have a long, healthy life. While an exact life expectancy is dependent on factors such as usage, regular flipping and rotating, and exposure to moisture, the following chart offers a general guideline:
Pure Cotton or Green Cotton Dreamton: 10+ Years
Pure Cotton or Green Cotton & Wool Boulder Dreamton: 10+ Years
Pure Cotton or Green Cotton & Wool Latex-Core Dreamton: 10+ Years
Pure Cotton or Green Cotton & Wool Evergreen Foam-Core Dreamton: 10+ Years
Evergreen Foam Mattress: 10+ Years
All-Latex Mattress: 15+ Years
Do note that these only represent an average expectancy. Many customers find that their handcrafted mattresses long exceed those averages --- the longest on record was a customer whose mattress was over 30 years old!
Cotton as a raw fiber tends to compress slowly over time, and if you prefer a firm sleep surface, you may find that your mattress ages better. Mattresses with an inner core will be a little more resilient and tend to wear a more evenly. By adding a core of Latex or Foam, the natural compression process is slowed. For this reason, the lifespan of a Foam Core or Latex Core mattress tends to exceed that of an all-cotton mattress. Our All-Latex Mattress is the most durable, as the raw material itself does not begin to break down for at least 15 years. As it is a solid block of natural latex foam, it will not compress and should maintain its shape over time.
