Why choose organic?
The average person spends 8 hours a day in bed. That’s 240 hours a month and 2920 hours a year! We spend a third of our time in our beds but sometimes forget how important our mattresses are.
What's so good about wool?
The wool content in the mattresses works to get your body to a comfortable sleeping temperature quicker, keeping you warm in the winter and cool in the summer because of its natural moisture-wicking properties. The average sleeper gives off nearly a pint of water vapour in an 8-hour sleep period, and wool can absorb up to 30% of its own weight without feeling damp or clammy so it’s resistant to mould and mildew too. Even better, it discourages dust mites, who need moisture to survive and prefer down, feather or synthetic materials.
Latex versus pocket sprung mattresses
We recommend everyone to try the mattress before they buy.
Here are some top tips to making sure you get the mattress best suited to you:
- Try and lie on the mattress for at least 10 minutes in order to get the best feel for it that you can.
- Place your hand under the small of your back. If it goes under very easily, it’s likely the mattress is too soft. If you can’t get it under then it’s too firm.
- Try all the different tensions, ‘firm’ mattresses are not the same ‘firmness’ for every maker.
- Try different types of pillows (we have wool, kapok, latex, millet and spelt here in our shop).
