Carded, sewn and quilted by hand in Italy, FIOCCO is the natural toddler mattress designed specifically for Babylodge® Montessori bed range. It stands out for a 100% natural filling, made of pure virgin wool (British Refino quality) and raw cotton, with a 50/50 or 30/70 mixed blend depending on variant.
Its comfortable consistency makes it particularly suitable for babies’ and kids’ delicate build: whilst carded staples offer softness and flexibility, the quilting, handmade with 100% cotton-linen yard, ensures structure and lift. These characteristics make FIOCCO the ideal complement for Babylodge® beds, equipped with on purpose-built board mattress-base to provide constant, and homogeneous support to the whole body.
At the same time, FIOCCO guarantees the safety of a breathable and hypoallergenic complement, suitable for any kind of skin, including the most sensitive and delicate ones. Indeed, all materials employed to make FIOCCO are 100% natural, free of any detergent or bleach and, therefore, completely recyclable and reusable.
How it is made
The internal filling is made of pure virgin wool (British Refino quality, the finest selection in the upholstering sector) and raw cotton staple fibers, carded by hand according to artisan tradition. The external cover is made with raw cotton fabric, whose écru color confirms the lack of any bleaching treatments. Then, the quilting is handmade with 100% cotton-linen yard.
Through the inspection zipper it is possible to feel tangibly the internal filling’s high quality. Wool staple fibers will result slightly greasy to the touch: this is due to the presence of a certain percentage of lanolin, the natural substance that the woolly fleece is soaked with. Largely used in natural cosmetics, lanolin is also known for its antibacterial and antimicrobial properties. Among pure cotton fibers you might find some residual grains, as confirmation of the raw material’s quality and, in particular, of its crude, untreated status.
100% natural, ideal in any season
Thanks to the wool-cotton mixed blend and, in particular, to the thermoregulation provided by wool, Babylodge® FIOCCO natural toddler mattress is suitable for any season.
Since ever, wool features extraordinary physical characteristics, that no synthetic fiber can equal. Wool is breathable, thermally insulating (it balances body temperature, helping stay warm when it’s cold and stay cool when it’s hot), water-resistant (it repels water and stays dry) and, at the same time, hygroscopic (it absorbs moisture and, therefore, sweat). It is fire-resistant, antibacterial e odour-resistant, ensuring a naturally healthy environment. Finally, it is a 100% natural, renewable, and biodegradable resource, very differently from the synthetic fibers used for industrial mattresses.

To safeguard natural fibers, it is recommended to periodically expose FIOCCO to air and sun.
As with any mattress for babies and kids, to prevent the mattress from any possible accident, it is recommended to use a mattress protector: to this purpose, within its product range Babylodge® recommends PANNO, a practical mattress and pillow protector set made of pure cotton cloth. As further protection, it is also possible to add absorbent bed pads between mattress and bedding.
