Pocket springs are a marketing man’s dream! If a 600 spring count is good, then a 1000 must be better and when you get up to 1500 or 2000 then the product must be fantastic! Would that life were that simple.

So let’s agree first that there’s a lot of nonsense talked about spring counts. What really matters is that the springs are well made, that the pocket unit is properly flat and that the mattress is properly upholstered.

As a mattress maker of long standing I have seen the technology that produces these springs change over the years. Thirty years ago a pocket sprung unit was sewn together by hand and took an inordinate amount of time to produce, but European and North American technology has seen the market revolutionised over the last fifteen years. Even the cheapest pocket sprung units manufactured today are vastly superior to what was being made in the past, but a 1500 count spring isn’t in some way ‘better’ than a 600 count spring.

All our pocket sprung mattresses are now made on 1000 count spring units … that means that there are 1000 springs in a 150 cm x 200 cm unit.

A 1000 count unit has a spring that is small enough to be reactive, but strong enough to ensure that it’s many years before it starts to lose its tension.

Snowdon

The Snowdon is a pocket sprung mattress made from layer upon layer of organic wool. It can be made in a choice of soft, medium or firm and these three options provide the perfect sleeping surface whether you are light, heavy, or just an average weight. We have combined layers of wool of different weights and densities in an unique way to make this wonderfully comfortable mattress. It is hand tufted and has an organic cotton cover. We have upgraded the Snowdon mattress in April 2016 so that it now contains a massive 2,500 gms of wool per square metre.

This Soil Association certified pocket sprung mattress is available in all standard sizes and can also be custom made to fit a non standard bed frame.

Research has shown that wool is the natural choice for sleeping on or under to give you a great night’s sleep. Those who have allergies will find this mattress easy to get along with because it is made purely of wool with an unbleached untreated cotton cover.

The Snowdon is made using a hand framed pocket sprung unit, is approximately 20 cms deep and guaranteed for 10 years.
