The weave on these cotton MiteGuard covers is 5.5 microns, ie they are made from an incredibly tightly woven fabric with almost no space between fibres.
In comparison, regular cotton sheets or duvet covers have spaces between the fibres of approx 300 microns. Since the average dust mite measures approx 20 microns, dust mites are not able to pass through your MiteGuard duvet cover.
MiteGuard covers should be used directly over your duvet, then use your regular duvet cover over the Mite Guard cover. Avoid removing the Mite Guard cover as much as possible, as the dust mites will be contained inside the cover.
Regular (weekly) washing of the outer sheets and covers in hot water (>55°C) will maintain a low allergen environment in the bed.

Single 206cm x 142cm
King single 206cm x 180cm

Asthma NZ join New Zealand and sit with a heavy heart in utter disbelief at the tragedy of Friday afternoon. No words are sufficient to describe the emotions New Zealand shares at this horrible time in our history.
For the love and respect of the 50 Families that come to terms with their great loss, we pray that New Zealand unites and moves forward as a more compassionate and accepting nation.
May we demonstrate to a world watching what unity and harmony look like.
