With the recent outbreak of bed bugs, our customers have been requesting that we bring back a popular item from our past: our organic mattress barrier cover. And we just had to agree. Protect your family from the effects of dust-mite allergens and your organic mattress from invaders like bed bugs. Our barrier cover is made from tightly-woven 100% certified organic cotton, with a 4.5-micron pore size, and closes with a heavy-duty brass zipper. Simply remove from mattress and machine wash in hot water (cover will become softer with each washing). Unlike similar synthetic products, our sturdy, breathable organic cotton encasements offer a more healthful sleep. Available in different depths to meet your specific needs. Call for a quote. Made in USA.
This item is made to order in our Northern California Eco-Factory™ and takes approximately 7-10 days to ship.

About Dust Mites...
Allergies caused by the fecal droppings of dust mites are the number-one trigger for asthmatics, and cause many of us to wake up sneezing or with swollen eyes. Their favorite habitat is the padding inside our beds, and their food source is our sloughed-off skin cells.
For best results, use our Mattress Barrier Cover when your mattress is new, before a dust-mite population settles in. Without a steady supply of skin cells, dust mites cannot survive.
I have a fluffy wool mattress topper plus a thin flat wool protector mat. Would it make sense to encase the fluffy topper within the barrier cover? It certainly wouldn't feel as luxurious but do you recommend that?
Since wool is naturally resistant to dust-mites, I wouldn't recommend putting the Wooly inside the Mattress Barrier cover, unless you are particularly concerned about bed-bugs. As you mentioned, the Wooly would not feel as luxurious if it were placed underneath and would compress more quickly. On the other hand, if you are using some kind of moisture pad (like our Flannel Mattress pad or Wool Moisture pad), it is probably best to put that on top of your Wooly (since the Wooly cannot be washed).
Seeing as this product is organic and listed as being simply really tightly woven fabric, what additional protection exists as part of the product to ensure that bedbugs are unable to bite through the mattress cover?
There is no need for extra protection because bedbugs can't bite through the cloth.
