I was disappointed in Ikea's offerings online, they may have more choice in store though. Do you have an Ikea near you? Online, the latex mattresses they sell are either full synthetic or 80% synthetic. The 2009 Green Guide did suggest the Ikea Sultan Heidal mattresss which has "an 85 percent natural latex core, wool and corn-based platic wadding, and a safer flame retardant made from phosphorus salts and nitrogen compounds ($799/queen)". So, if you can go to an Ikea, I would look to see if they have that one in store in a twin. I would have definitely checked it out if I didn't have to use Ikea's online store!
Here's the Green Guide's Mattress Buying Guide (although they don't have the Ikea mattresses listed in their online guide!)
bumping because i'm shopping for a new mattress.
which ikea mattress would you recommend without coils? online it looks like the sultan heidel has coils (which i'm trying to avoid)
Do you think if i just asked the local foam dealer to find me a 6 inch slab of talalay foam from malaysia i'd end up with something of quality that won't offgas?
In the past we got a doctor's note that stated that for medical reasons we needed a mattress without flame retardant, and the local foam place was able to get us an unsprayed futon (it wasnt natural latex foam though, it had synthetic foams layered between the cotton battings)
