• Available in Medium or Firm tension (95% of our customers prefer Medium)
• Medium/Firm fillings feel
• Active Support Technology® springs
• For lovers of pure natural wool, our Widecombe Mattress contains over 2.5kg per m² of fine British wool. That’s massive – over 19 kilos in each king size mattress
• A highly breathable all wool mattress with our fabulous organic cotton and wool cover
Under the cover we use layer after layer of fine, natural British wool to give the mattress its luxury feel.
Wool has many positive natural properties. It breathes well, bounces back, is naturally fire-retardant as well as being non-allergenic. The layer of wool directly on top of the springs is heavily needled to form a cushion.
Unlike other manufacturers of wool mattresses, we don’t add other fillings like foam (by law, full of fire-retardant chemicals). Just wool, wool and more pure wool! Some suppliers to the mattress industry offer very thin sheets of wool (sometimes with small amounts of alpaca, mohair or silk) allowing the retailer to claim that their mattress contains these upmarket products. We don’t. Our Widecombe contains wool, wool and more pure wool!

This spring unit has been well balanced to offer strength, the correct level of support and durability without making the mattress too heavy.

If you’d prefer this mattress with an organic wool filling, select the Organic Wool option from the drop down menu. We call this organic wool version of the Widecombe the Hatherleigh.
Our fabulous Widecombe mattresses are handcrafted to order. The fillings are stitched together with flax thread – we use no glues or adhesives. We even hand tuft our mattresses with wool-felt. The Widecombe bed mattress is quality assured by our craftsmen in Devon and carries the “Cottonsafe®” brand with a 10-year warranty.
Because we use natural and organic materials with little or no treatment to keep them as natural as possible there may be an aroma of cotton or wool. Also due to the thick layers we use, a degree of settlement will naturally occur over time. This process may be accelerated by constant pressure or lying in a certain area leaving a slight hollow. This is quite natural; over time this will smooth out when the fillings settle evenly.
