Just found out my dog is highly allergic to dust mites and I have been told to ditch all my beautiful dog beds! If I could find a fabric resistant to dust mite migration I could enclose the stuffing and just launder the covers.

Anyone know where I might look for this fabric? Thanks.

Okay, how about this. Check out these ANTI-BED BUG SHEETS (Vermont Country Store isn't the only one who sells these). These are also anti-dust mite sheets.

What if you sewed covers from these sheets? If you have to seal the seams, you could do that with a seam sealer that campers use for their tents and outer garments.

Anything?

If you google dust mite matress cover you will find a variety of products. Hot water wash and high heat can kill them.

I have an allergy to them but it is actually the dust mite poop that is the problem. As I understand it best results are achieved by ridding your home of carpet, drapes, and fabric upholstered furniture. Perfection is impossible.

My youngest son was allergic when he was little and we had to get the mattress covers. You could get them and just cut them down to fit the dog beds.

Thanks so very much for your recommendations. I ordered two king-size sheets from Vermont Country Store as they were by far the least expensive at $30 each. My Airedale, Roxy, thanks her sewing friends for their help!
