What makes the mattresses you sell a cut above the rest?
Natural Materials - All our mattresses are made of 100% natural materials. There are no synthetic materials or chemicals in our mattresses. Natural materials are very important for your health. All of our mattresses are either covered with wool or made of wool, which has been shown lower your heart rate and contribute to deeper, more restful sleep.
Naturally Fire Retardant - All mattresses by law are required to meet flammability standards. Because wool is a natural fire retardant, there is no need to incorporate fire retardant chemicals in any of our products. All our mattresses and toppers have been tested and have passed the CFR 1632 Flammability Tests.
American Made - All our mattresses are made in the USA, providing local jobs and strengthening communities. While some of the raw material may be imported from other countries, the mattresses themselves are assembled in the United States.
High-Quality Manufacturers - We've handpicked the best manufacturers the industry has to offer, choosing vendors whose philosophy and standards of quality align with ours.
What type of mattress do you recommend for babies and children?
Babies and Toddlers - Infants need a firm mattress for safety reasons; therefore, crib mattresses only come in Firm. All our mattresses meet all federal safety laws regarding crib mattress manufacturing. For the crib, we offer two mattress options: latex and Innerspring. Either will be a comfortable and safe choice for your little one.
Children under 12 are usually not heavy enough to require a specific firmness preference. Mattresses with pillow tops are not necessary for children, who are lightweight and still growing. If a bed needs softening as they grow, a topper can be added.
Does my body weight determine the type of mattress I need?
Body weight can be a factor in selecting the thickness of a mattress. The more body weight, the deeper the mattress. If you are preparing the bed for a smaller person, a mattress under 8” will be just fine. For persons of larger stature, we recommend a mattress height around 10”. Those who consider themselves on the extra large side may want to consider a mattress plus topper combination.
Keep in mind that total mattress height can be achieved with the mattress plus additional toppers. For example, a 10” Latex Mattress plus a 4” Latex Topper would give you a total mattress height of 14”
Weight is also a factor in terms of which firmness level to choose. In general, the more body weight one has, the softer the mattress one tends to like.
