Welcome to Sleep Ask's Spindle mattress review. The Spindle mattress is an all-natural latex design sold online. The company is based out of Boston and is proud to offer a quality bedding without the high markups department stores tend to tack on.
I invite you to read my report which will go over the different firmness levels you can choose from and explain in detail what materials are used in each supportive and comfortable layer I came across during my test run of this product.
During my trial period I learned that the design consists of three layers. The design is about 10” thick and contains three 3” layers and a cover measuring 1” thick, which acts as a quilted layer on top. The 3” layers all contain natural ingredients, which was important to me.
The latex used in the product is OEKO-Tex 100 certified, which is a fancy label for saying that there are no harmful substances found in the materials. This was comforting to know. Keep in mind that these layers can be reassembled to give you a custom firmness level, a great selling point and an important feature of any sleeping surface
The cover is also made from natural materials. It’s a zipper cover, which you’ll need to place over the layers once you have them arranged the way you want. It’s made from wool and organic cotton and includes a quilted layer for added comfort. It is not washable though so take proper precautions to protect it.
First Impression & Overnight Test (Firmness, Feel, & Support)
- Before my trial period of this product I had never slept on latex before. Since then, I’ve slept on several but if you’ve never experienced a latex based sleeping surface, it’s a very unique feeling. My first night was spent trying to figure out how to describe what I was feeling. I had chosen the medium firmness and while that seemed to be accurate, it took me a while to get used to the latex. At first, I felt like I was sinking too much. But then, the surface seemed to firm up and add more support. Latex is unique in the fact that it can act as both support and comfort.
Overall, I was happy with the level of firmness the company helped me choose and I found the product to be just as comfortable as models that cost twice as much. Though the feeling of support is unique, it still helped alleviate pressure points and kept me from tossing and turning all night. If you’ve never slept on latex before, I encourage you to try a trial period. You might not realize what you’re missing out on!
Sinkage, Motion Transfer, & Temperature
There is a bit of sinkage with the Spindle, as it is a memory foam mattress. The edge support isn’t the best I’ve ever seen but I didn’t experience any uncomfortable sinkage in the middle of the mattress during my Spindle mattress review.
Because the Spindle is made with foam, you can expect it to absorb motion very well. I was happy with how little I was disturbed by my partner’s movements during my Spindle mattress review.
Latex mattresses aren’t the best at regulating temperature and there are no cooling gels or features added to the mattress, in an effort to keep it as natural as possible. During my Spindle mattress review, I did find the mattress getting a little warm but not terrible. If it’s too warm for you, I recommend using a cooling mattress topper.
Firmness and support
Here’s one of the best features I found during my Spindle mattress review. You can choose from five different firmness levels when you order your mattress for your Spindle mattress review. The company will help you decide which is best for you so that your first night on the mattress is spent enjoying it, not regretting it.
One of the most attractive features I came across is that it’s made from natural materials. Also, you have the power to completely customize the firmness level of your sleeping surface by rearranging the layers as desired. Because the product is sold directly from the manufacturer, it’s also more affordable compared to similar models found in department stores. My favorite feature was the unique feeling that latex offers.
How Does It Compare?
You can’t go wrong with any of these options but if you’re looking for a truly natural design that allows you to change your firmness level in a matter of minutes, the product I tested will beat out the competition every time.
If you’ve never tried a latex design in the past, I urge you to head to a bedding store and try one out. If you like it, then it’s time to conduct your own test run. It’s a luxurious design made with only the highest quality natural materials that’s priced well below the industry average. You’ll be able to customize your firmness level and enjoy comfort for countless blissful nights of perfect sleep. Check out our other mattress reviews.
