Hi kll4,

I'm thinking about going with a DIY latex mattress. I already own an organic cotton dust mite mattress encasement. Would that be protection enough for raw latex layers to save me from buying another cover? From what I have read about latex, it is naturally dust mite resistant so my thought about using the dust mite cover is not necessarily for preventing dust mites, but more for protecting the latex layers.

If you are attracted to the idea of designing and building your own mattress out of separate components and a separate cover then the first place I would start is by reading option 3 in and the posts it links to (and option #1 and #2 as well) so that you have more realistic expectations and that you are comfortable with the learning curve, uncertainty, trial and error, or in some cases the higher costs that may be involved in the DIY process. While it can certainly be a rewarding project ... the best approach to a DIY mattress is a "spirit of adventure" where what you learn and the satisfaction that comes from the process itself is more important than any cost savings you may realize (which may or may not happen).

If you decide to take on the challenge then I would either use the specs (if they are available) of a mattress that you have tested and confirmed are a good match for you in terms of PPP as a reference point (the same type and blend of latex in the same thickness and firmness levels and a very similar cover which can also make a significant difference to the feel and performance of a mattress) or use a "bottom up" approach (see ).

A mattress encasement and a mattress cover (or "ticking") are completely different products and designed for different purposes so one is generally not a suitable replacement for the other. There is more about the differences between them in .
