Organic Cotton Protector
This organic cotton protector is fully waterproof and fitted. It contains a waterproof lamination made from non-hazardous, phthalates-free polyurethane.
We recommend this option if there's a high probability of an accident occurring, or to anyone with a desire for 100% protection. Due to its waterproof backing, this protector does not offer the same degree of breathability as our water resistant wool protector.
We purchased a Black Sheep mattress for our 5 yr. old son a couple years ago and purchased an organic cotton protector. We like how Black Sheep makes clean products and having an option for a protector that doesn't contain chemicals or off gassing was high on our list. We've had the product for a while now and it has been great. Does what it's intended for to protect against light spills and accidents. It has held up with washing and we still use it today.
Would recommend for someone looking at a healthy option for mattress protection.
We love having an organic cotton option but the polyurethane backing prevents any breathability of the product and counters any of the possible benefit. It causes both of us to overheat and sweat at night it also has little to no extra padding that you would expect with a premium priced mattress protector.
