Cotton

Cotton can absorb up to 45 per cent of its own weight in liquid. Cotton fibres or cotton linters – the short fibres of cotton which are not suitable for spinning – therefore excellently absorb sweat and are an ideal cover material for heavily utilised mattresses. Therefore, it is not surprising that cotton is the most popular textile fibre for mattresses. Our cotton nonwovens are, depending on customer requirements, needlepunched, needlepunched on a carrier web or thermal bonded. Furthermore, Hans Höffele Industriewatte GmbH developed a process which prepares cotton for the needs of persons with allergies. Cotton is pre-washed and bleached at 130° Celsius. The cotton can be freely washed up to 95° Celsius and is suitable for tumble drying.
