WHAT IS KAPOK?
Kapok fiber is harvested from the fluffy fiber surrounding the seeds of the tropical kapok tree (ceiba pentandra). Also known as "silk cotton," kapok is the lightest natural fiber in the world, with a density nearly five times as light as cotton. This adds a light and fluffy feel to our bedding products. Kapok fibers are hollow, which helps them function as a thermo-regulator. The fiber is also resistant to water, helping wick away moisture for a more comfortable sleep. Naturepedic uses only certified organic kapok, ensuring fair treatment of workers and environmental sustainability of our tropical forests. It is grown without toxins, synthetic pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, or GMO’s (genetically modified organisms).
