At Natural Bed Company, we’re always on the look out for more eco friendly mattress options. Having a variety of support, fillings and price ranges is important to us. We hope to have something that suits everyone needs! Here, we take a look through some of our newest additions and their key features…

Eco Core Cotton and Wool Mattresses

This high quality mattress has been created using a unique Natural Eco Core. Meaning, it is both comfortable and supportive, whilst also being good for the planet! A natural and biodegradable core of latex and coconut fibres is encased in a layer of soft, temperature-regulating wool or cool, rich cotton. You can also pick your comfort level – one side is medium-firm whilst the other is extra-firm.

Key Features:

  • Biodegradable – only some of the stitching contains non-biodegradable material.
  • Unique latex and coconut fibre core
  • No springs
  • Additional fillings of wool or cotton
  • One side extra-firm, the other medium/firm feel
  • Natural Materials
  • Made in the UK

Luxury Organic 1500 and 3000 Sprung Mattresses

A luxurious, traditionally pocket sprung, eco friendly mattress. Naturally chemical free and made using predominantly organic materials (over 90%). Including organic wool, cotton and flax with organic ticking.

The 1500 spring count is available in Medium or Firm. Whereas, the 3000 spring count option comes in a wider range of firmness ratings, with four options – from Soft to Extra Firm!

  • Naturally fire retardant due to high content of wool (the ticking is biodegradable and sustainable)
  • Over 90% organic materials
  • GOTS certified organic flax, cotton, wool and ticking
    • Organic materials are grown without synthetic pesticides or fertilisers. When you buy organic you are supporting sustainable farming methods.
  • Chemical free
  • Made in the UK

Westgate and Weldbank Sprung Mattresses

These mattresses do not contain traditional chemical FR treatments – instead the ticking is treated with M-PURE – an ecofriendly, non-toxic, biological treatment from Maes. This natural fire retardant utilises a raw material produced from the dairy industry. Following the launch of M-PURE, Maes Mattress Ticking have successfully created a non-chemical FR treatment by using Bio-based ingredients for the compound.

Weldbank Range

The Weldbank is available in standard/medium firmness with 3 different spring counts to offer different levels of support; the 1000, 1500 and 2500. That is, the higher the spring count, the more supportive yet soft and luxurious the feel! Filled with polycotton, temperature regulating English fine spun cotton and Hampshire Wool.

The newest addition to our range is a 1000 spring ‘Ortho’ extra firm Weldbank mattress. This is already very popular with our customers, and is also our firmest sprung mattress. You can find it here on our website.

Westgate 4000

Incredibly comfortable and supportive, with the added benefit of being chemical free and so ecologically friendly. The Westgate 4000 pocket sprung mattresses incorporate 1000 full-size pocket springs, and 3000 smaller, body contouring pocket springs for extra comfort (based on a king-size). This mattress features the same filling as the Weldbank range. However, it boasts the addition of silk and cashgora; the offspring of a Cashmere and an Angora goat! Choose from medium, firm or dual tension in this range.

  • Non chemical fire retardent treatment to the mattress ticking – so the ticking is biodegradable and sustainable.
  • Luxurious fillings of fine English spun cotton, locally sourced Hampshire Wool, luxury silk and cashgora (on the Westgate).
  • Made in the UK

Eco Friendly Mattress Accessories

Of course, if you’re investing in a new eco friendly mattress, you ought to consider some accessories to help you achieve an even better sleep!

Protect your mattress with an Organic Cotton Mattress Protector. Great for absorbing moisture or spills and much easier to clean regularly than your mattress. These luxurious protectors are made of thick, soft organic cotton.
If you’re after a little more softness, check out the Organic Cotton Filled Mattress Cover. This quilted mattress cover will add softness and gentle cushioning to a mattress that is a little too firm. It’s also useful as a natural buffer on mattresses with a synthetic cover. 
For pillows, look no further than Wild Silk filled for the luxury fluffy feel, Organic Wool and Pine shavings for something a little firmer and the Tencel filled pillow for a vegan option.
We also carry a wide range of organic bedding, towels, loungewear and home accessories!

I hope this blog has been helpful in breaking down some of your eco friendly mattress options with us! Of course, all mattresses are available to try in our Sheffield showroom. Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any further questions.
