Summary:

These are the only heavyweight organic cotton encasement we carry. They provide excellent protection against dust mites and their debris and feces with a proven small pore size of 3.85 microns. You can be sure you are getting a quality organic cotton encasement with our Home Essential organic cotton encasements, as the fabric is SKAL and GOTS certified organic and tested by PMI for mean pore size and barrier efficiency. Backed by a 5 year warranty, they are durable and will withstand machine washing. The nylon zippers are easy to use and reinforced for strength while remaining discrete under your sheets. The encasements are slightly oversized to account for shrinkage, so we recommend pre-washing before use for best fit. The pillow encasements are offered in the heavyweight organic mattress encasement fabric and a lightweight organic fabric for those who prefer a thinner encasement for their pillows. Both the heavy and light weight fabrics provide an excellent barrier to dust mites, though the heavyweight fabric has a slightly smaller pore size. None the less, I would recommend the lightweight fabric over the heavyweight fabric for a pillow encasement because it is more supple and was preferred by our testers.
