Recently there has been quite a rise in the number of people buying mattress toppers. It is difficult to know why this might be happening. Perhaps we are all just seeking the perfect night`s sleep?

Mattress toppers are a soft, thin layer, usually padded and quilted, and about an inch thick, which go on top of the mattress and under the sheet. This gives a little more comfort for the sleeper. They will not cure the ills of an old, lumpy mattress, but will give an extra softness on top of a fairly good mattress. They are usually fastened with straps that fit round the corners of the mattress.

Some toppers have another purpose. They have a waterproof lining to protect the mattress from perspiration, spills or other stains. The waterproof lining can reduce the growth of mould in the mattress, which, in turn, can reduce certain allergic symptoms. They are also useful for hotels as sometimes guests are a little less careful with hotel bedding than they are at home.


The best mattress toppers are those made from 100% mulberry silk. This is the best silk in the world. It is produced from captive silk worms which are fed entirely on mulberry leaves and carefully tended for the whole of their life cycle. The silk produced is long strand silk, which is the softest and also has the best thermal qualities of any natural fibre.

Nobody likes the idea of dust mites or bed bugs in their bed, but unfortunately they are a fact of life, unless you buy the right bedding. Dust mites produce faeces which are very powdery and can cause irritation in the lungs. For people with asthma or other lung diseases this can cause serious illness and, in a few cases, even death. Other people, particularly children, may suffer from skin conditions such as eczema. These are also conditions which are irritated by bed bugs and dust mites. Mulberry silk is such a pure fabric that no dust mites or bed bugs can live in it, so any type of silk bedding, including a mattress topper, will make a dramatic difference to the lives of people with allergies.

Silk is not only the softest, most comfortable natural fibre known to man, it also has other amazing qualities which aid sleep. It has the quality to regulate body temperature. It can keep you warm when the ambient temperature is cold and keep you cool when the ambient temperature is warm. Menopausal women are delighted to find that their `hot flushes` are controlled when sleeping on and under silk.

So, when choosing a mattress topper, be sure you obtain the greatest comfort alongside the best health benefits. After all, we spend almost a third of our lives in bed and it is better for all of us, even if we have no allergies, to sleep in a clean environment. On this website there are mattress toppers produced by a special method that best keeps the mulberry silk interior in tact. Depending upon your bed size follow one of these links to find out more - mattress topper for a single bed, mattress topper for a double bed, king size mattress toppers and a super king mattress toppers. May you sleep well....
