I’ve seen old latex that has become crusty with age. What covering do you use to keep the latex from drying out?
We recommend wrapping your natural latex foam with wool batting. A cotton ticking fabric envelope wrapped around the wool will help prevent the wool fibers from migrating through to the surface of your outer upholstery fabric. Both layers will help to protect the natural latex from UV damage and drying out.

The craft of (RE)upholstery is, without a doubt, a key solution to the problem of furniture waste (12 million tons of furniture go to landfills each year in the U.S. alone). Please consider supporting the National Upholstery Association in their efforts to expand professional upholstery education. We need more 'boots on the ground' to do this work. Thank you.
