~~1350 Calico pocket sprung mattresses are the height of comfort, hand nested pocket springs sewn into natural calico sleeves that individually respond to pressure provide support where it’s needed yet allow hips and shoulders to gently sink into the mattress to create the perfect sleeping posture, and because each spring is independent there is less disturbance from your partners turning and movement during the night.
Our beautifully handcrafted mattresses have one side of deeply layered British wool covered in a soft knitted ticking. Sink in to the soft wool on a cold winters’ night for a cosy restful sleep, or turn the mattress to the summer side to experience the benefits of a layer of British wool combined with cooling cotton and a sumptuous layer of cashmere.
The side panels of the mattress are given extra rigidity either through the use of butterfly clips or by hand sewing. Both methods enable the full width of the mattress to be utilised without the sides collapsing.
Which spring firmness to choose?
A mattress should support your weight gently without hard pressure points on your hips, shoulders and knees, but equally should not sag under your weight. If you have a light frame or suffer from aching joints and pressure points in bed then go for the soft spring. If you have a heavier frame then the medium spring is for you.
All of our Wool Mattresses are handcrafted in Britain using British wool waddings.
The British Bed Federation recommends changing your mattress every 8-10 years.
