The chemcial free cotton cover effectively keeps the surface cool by offsetting heat retention from the body. Steady airflow through the calico spring layers provides additional thermoregulation.

The mattress is medium soft feel, but the fibres adapt to the body, creating a plush feel when you get into bed. The hand teased horsetail is intended to dissipate heat from the surface.
Calico springs with reinforced edges and a organic flax comprise the support core. The cover is made of a chemical free cotton fabric blend, a material engineered to wick away moisture to keep you dry at night. The No2 measures 51cm thick, making it a high-profile mattress.

Why do we Hand Tease our Wool?

Hand teasing of fibres is a technique used to prepare natural materials like wool, cotton, and horsehair for use in mattresses. This process involves separating and loosening individual fibres by hand, creating a fluffy and even texture that is ideal for use in mattress filling. However, hand-teasing of fibres is a more time-consuming process compared to using pre-manufactured fibber pads in mattresses.

When fibres are hand-teased, the process is more delicate and precise compared to using pre-manufactured fibre pads. This method allows for greater control over the process, ensuring that fibres are not damaged or broken during the separation process. As a result, the final product is of a higher quality and more uniform in texture, providing better support and comfort to the sleeper.

Hand-teasing is also much more time-consuming process than using pre-manufactured fibre pads. Hand-teasing can take several hours to complete just one layer of fibres for a mattress, whereas pre-manufactured fibre pads can be placed on top of one another in a matter of minutes. This time difference is especially significant when large quantities of mattresses need to be produced.

While using pre-manufactured fibre pads in mattresses is a faster and more convenient process, there are several reasons why hand-teasing of fibres is considered superior:

  1. Plushness: Hand-teased fibres are plusher compared to pre-manufactured fibre pads. The hand-teasing process results in a more fluffy and airy filling, which can provide a more luxurious and comfortable sleeping experience. The fibres are evenly separated, allowing for a more even distribution of weight and pressure, resulting in a more supportive and cushioned sleep surface.
  2. Breathability: Hand-teased fibres are more breathable compared to pre-manufactured fibre pads. The hand-teasing process results in a more open and airy filling, which allows for better airflow through the mattress. This increased airflow can help regulate body temperature, keeping the sleeper cooler and more comfortable during the night.
  3. Consistency: Hand-teased fibres result in a more consistent and uniform filling compared to pre-manufactured fibre pads. The hand-teasing process ensures that the fibres are evenly separated and not damaged, resulting in a more even texture that can provide better support and comfort to the sleeper.
  4. Durability: Hand-teased fibres are more durable compared to pre-manufactured fibre pads. The fibres are not compressed during the manufacturing process, which can result in a longer lifespan for the mattress filling.
  5. Sustainability: Hand-teasing of fibres is a more sustainable process compared to using pre-manufactured fibre pads. The hand-teasing process does not involve any synthetic materials or chemicals, resulting in a more natural and eco-friendly filling.

Despite the time investment required for hand-teasing, the resulting filling is of a higher quality and more uniform in texture, which can improve the overall sleep experience.

Merino wool is prized for its softness, versatility, and exceptional insulation properties.

Should Wool Mattresses Contain Springs?

Wool mattresses are best when used on top of pocket sprung mattresses due to several reasons. Firstly, pocket sprung mattresses offer superior support compared to other types of mattresses. The individual springs work independently to respond to your body’s movement, providing customised support and reducing pressure points.

When combined with natural fillings such as pure wool instead of cheap memory foam, pocket spring mattresses offer a luxurious and comfortable sleeping experience. The natural materials used in wool mattresses, such as pure wool, provide softness and support while also helping to regulate temperature. This is especially important for most people who tend to stay cool and comfortable while sleeping.

In addition, the breathable properties of pure wool help to keep you cool, even on hot summer nights. The combination of pocket springs and natural fillings create a mattress that is supportive, comfortable, and temperature regulating, making it a good mattress for a restful sleep.

Why Should you Purchase Wool Mattresses From Winstons Beds?

Winston’s Beds stands out as the premier choice for customers seeking the highest quality wool mattresses available. In contrast to other brands, such as Millbrook Wool Luxury, John Lewis, and Happy Beds, Winston’s Beds is completely transparent in its use of materials, displaying the total GSM in each mattress. This level of transparency ensures that customers know exactly what they are paying for and can rest easy knowing they are investing in a high-quality product.

Happy Beds may claim to sell “luxury natural” mattresses at low prices, but without disclosing the amount of materials used in their products, they lack the level of transparency that Winston’s Beds offers. At Winston’s Beds, we believe in providing customers with the best value for their investment, and we accomplish this by offering the highest quality wool mattresses at each price point.

When it comes to wool mattresses, the GSM (grams per square meter) is an important factor to consider. A higher GSM indicates a greater amount of wool used in the mattress, resulting in a more comfortable, supportive, and durable sleep surface. Winston’s Beds proudly displays the total GSM in each of our wool mattresses, allowing customers to make an informed decision and ensuring they receive the best possible value for their money.

Choosing a wool mattress from Winston’s Beds means choosing the very best in quality and value. Our commitment to transparency and customer satisfaction sets us apart from other brands, making us the clear choice for those seeking a truly luxurious and comfortable night’s sleep.
