It's Great For:
Silk & Snow’s Organic Mattress is one of the most luxurious options on their roster. This mattress uses natural, organic materials to create a sleep surface that is good for you and the environment. While some mattresses are made with synthetic foams derived from chemical processes, this mattress uses only ingredients found in nature. Better yet, all of the materials used in the Silk & Snow Organic Mattress are transparently sourced. You can find where each layer of your mattress originates if you want to.
This mattress is medium-firm in feel but offers strong support throughout the coil and latex layers. A layer of quilted wool on top of the mattress provides a pillowy feel that rivals a more traditional pillow-top mattress. A core of latex helps contour to your body to relieve pressure and provide better bounce and ease of movement. Finally, a strong zoned pocket coil layer helps keep you aligned and comfortable throughout the night, especially throughout your hips and back.
This mattress carries a GOLS (Global Organic Latex Standard) certification, as well as a GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certification. It’s also certified by eco-INSTITUT, meaning it doesn’t contain hazardous chemicals that may harm you or your environment. If you need a mattress with better support, pressure relief, and alignment for side sleepers or back sleepers, this mattress has you covered. In the rest of our Silk & Snow Organic Mattress review, we’ll delve into the core mattress features that make this option unique.
Overall Score: 4/5
The Silk & Snow Organic Mattress uses several layers of natural, organic materials to offer strong support and pressure relief. Each layer uses transparently sourced materials, which Silk & Snow is more than willing to divulge. You’ll always know where your mattress comes from.
- GOTS Certified Organic Cotton Cover. The mattress cover is made with organic cotton from a textile company in Toronto, Ontario. This cover is breathable and soft, creating a comfortable introduction to the sleep surface.
- Wool Quilt Layer. A layer of quilted wool acts as a natural fire retardant. This wool is straight from New Zealand and helps the mattress avoid using fire-retardant chemicals. It also wicks away heat and moisture.
- GOLS Certified Organic Latex Layer. The Dunlop latex used in the organic latex layer comes from a latex manufacturer in Sri Lanka. This layer is exceptionally responsive and allows you to move around easily on the mattress.
- Zoned Support. The middle of the pocket coil base layer is firmer than the surrounding coils. This allows for more balanced support throughout the centre of the mattress for your hips and lumbar.
- Pocket Coil Base. A layer of supportive pocket coils supports better spinal alignment. Softer coils around your shoulders allow for better pressure relief, while the firmer zoned support offers exactly what you need.
- Firm Edge Support. The firm coils around the perimeter of the mattress add additional support, which prevents flattening when you sit on the edge. While some mattresses offer a sliding or sinking feeling, you’ll be better supported with this mattress.
The Silk & Snow Organic Mattress is a medium-firm mattress. It falls at about a 7 on the firmness scale, which means that it is supportive and helps balance your body without allowing you to sink too far into the mattress. The pocket coil layer offers zoned support for your hips and lumbar, which helps keep you aligned as you sleep. The latex top layer contours to your body, relieving pressure exactly where you need it.
Because of its medium-firm feel, this mattress is well-suited for back sleepers and side sleepers. Canadians with heavier body types will appreciate how supportive this mattress is, as it won’t give you the same ‘quicksand’ feeling as a memory foam mattress might.
If you are a lighter sleeper, you probably find yourself waking up often throughout the night. When your partner turns over or gets out of bed, most mattresses transfer motion to the other side of the bed. This means you’re getting jostled around more than you should. Thankfully, the Silk & Snow Organic Mattress helps isolate some of the motion from the other side of the bed.
The latex core helps stop motion as it happens, while the pocket coils below compress individually instead of as a set. This means that any motion stays within the coils where it started, and won’t transfer across the core of the mattress to disturb you. Most of the time, foam mattresses have the best motion isolation due to the nature of the materials. The Silk & Snow Organic Mattress helps reduce motion, but you might still feel some of the larger motions from the other side of the bed.
Though the Silk & Snow Organic Mattress is a firmer option than some of the other mattresses that Silk & Snow offers, it still provides great pressure relief. A layer of quilted foam at the top of the mattress and the comforting, contouring latex underneath help elevate you out of the mattress. You’ll be sleeping comfortably in no time, with adequate support and pressure relief to keep those uncomfortable pressure points at bay.
These layers don’t allow you to sink very far into the mattress. While the latex core does provide contouring, it doesn’t sink like memory foam. If you’d rather experience the feeling of slowly sinking into the mattress, a memory foam option might be best for you.
Otherwise, this responsive mattress provides the proper protection against pressure points without keeping you trapped in layers of foam. It’s great for pressure relief, particularly for those who want to move around a lot as they sleep.
The Silk & Snow Organic Mattress doesn’t contain any active temperature control features, which means those who sleep hot might not find it comfortable. However, the layers of cotton and wool at the top of the mattress help wick away moisture, reducing sweat throughout the night. The latex core is more breathable than memory foam options and doesn’t retain heat in the same way.
Finally, the pocket coils create better breathability throughout the mattress. While this option may not be suitable for those who sleep extremely hot, users who find themselves a little too warm on a standard memory foam mattress may feel a difference with these materials.
If you’ve ever sat at the edge of a memory foam mattress, you might remember feeling as though you were sliding off the edge. Sagging and slipping at the edges of the mattress makes it uncomfortable, particularly if you sleep near the side of the bed. The Silk & Snow Organic Mattress offers a firm perimeter of supportive coils around the edges of the mattress. This means that the edges are reinforced. You can comfortably sit or sleep near the edge of the mattress without sinking or sliding.
This mattress allows you to feel comfortable no matter where you sleep on the mattress. The edge-to-edge support is superior to many other bed in a box mattresses.
Ease of Movement
Some Canadians find it difficult to move around on foam mattresses. Many types of foam (including memory foam and latex) sink under your weight, contouring to your body to reduce pressure. Because of this, it can be difficult to move around on these mattresses.
However, the latex core and the quilted wool top layer of the Silk & Snow Organic Mattress provide better responsiveness. The latex still contours to your body, but you won’t feel stuck in the mattress as you might with other mattresses. This means that this mattress is great for those who need extra pressure relief, but also like to move around during the night. Combination sleepers will be especially comfortable on this mattress.
Silk & Snow’s Organic Mattress is one of the company’s most luxurious mattresses.
