Our latex mattresses come with dual covers. The outer cover is removable and machine washable. We don't recommend you remove the inner cover that is around the latex. Our latex mattress comes with a 20-Year Limited Warranty and is made from certified 100% natural latex. We import our latex directly from Arpico and pass the savings on to you.
Our natural latex mattresses offer unparalleled comfort. Natural latex is one of the only natural sleeping surfaces that is economical and healthy as well as durable. Our latex has been filtered to remove the latex protein commonly associated with latex allergies. No other material offers the comfort and durability of a natural latex mattress. We want you to love your purchase for years. We are happy to make exceptions and work with our customers even past the 100-night trial period. Over time your preference for the firmness of your latex mattress can change and you may want to modify the firmness. We are happy to exchange one of your layers with one of our almost new layers at any time. Latex is much cooler than memory foam. When compared to spring mattresses, latex is considered much more conforming and evenly supportive. We can also make custom size latex mattresses. Contact us for a quote.
Note: Thickness includes 3" Latex layer.
Enjoy the best of all worlds with this innovative latex mattress:
We layer 3 inches of top-quality 100% natural latex on a high density base foam with a thickness of your choice. While sitting on your Larkspur bed, you will feel the firm support of the base foam. While sleeping, you will only feel the pressure-relieving latex layer. The firmness descriptions are based on a 175-lb person.
Latex naturally provides you with a deeper, more regenerative night's sleep. Never again will you wake up with the aches caused by insufficient support, or the stiffness and pain created by inadequate pressure relief. Nor will you want for a bed that is comfortable and compatible with sitting. Ours does both!
Many parents fear for the health of their newborn. In today's world, it's unfortunate to be surrounded by so many damaging chemicals; we ingest them through our skin, lungs and mouth. The last place you want to worry about chemicals is where your baby is sleeping. Sadly, most mattresses contain flame retardant additives for which there have been reported links to breast cancer, and one of these commonplace chemicals was recently linked to nervous system developmental problems. Our Natural latex is naturally flame retardant and doesn't contain any chemical additives. It is naturally anti-microbial and dust mite free, thwarting bacteria and dust mites that interfere with immunity. With our all-natural crib mattress you will breathe easier knowing your baby is sleeping on a toxin-free surface.
The outer double knit cover has a zipper, and is removable and washable. The standard crib size is 52 × 28 × 6 inches (132 × 71 × 15 cm), but we are happy to customize a crib mattress for an additional cost. Simply add comments to your shopping cart to specify your crib mattress dimensions. Confused? Give us a call and we will talk you through it, step by step.
Our Organic Natural Crib Mattresses use organic, breathable materials that will keep your baby warm in the winter and cool in the summer. We use certified organic 100% natural latex as the core of this mattress. The casing is made by quilting certified organic wool to organic cotton fabric. This mattress does not use any chemically-treated barrier cloths to pass current fire retardant mattress requirements—the all-organic materials pass fire tests naturally.
The comfy pillow top for our Organic Natural Crib Mattress is made from the following layers (from top to bottom)...
We recommend that the latex mattress is used on a slatted platform bed or slatted foundation or box spring—anything with air flow. If used on a solid platform, keep watch under the mattress to ensure mold doesn't form. We sell slats you can install under the latex mattress to raise it up a bit. We recommend rotating the mattress weekly, and the occasional flipping! This helps to prevent any product failures.
We rate the firmness of our latex mattress using a hardness number. The standard numbering system for rating latex foam firmness, "ILD," measures the number of pounds it takes to compress a sample of latex foam one inch. We carry 5 different firmnesses: Soft (13-23 ILD), Medium (26-30 ILD), Firm (31-35 ILD), Extra Firm (36-42 ILD), and Hard (55-62 ILD).
Use the following table as a guide to select the best mattress for your body. The table refers to the thickness of the inner latex core of the mattress.
|Under 210 lbs||9"||9"||6"–9"|
|Over 210 lbs||12"||12"||6"–9"|
To create a thicker latex mattress (9" or more) without substantially increasing the cost, consider adding however many inches you'd like of our EconoFlex C55 conventional polyurethane foam. This can be placed at the bottom of the mattress with little to no change in the feel or durability of the mattress. If you choose to do this, please specify in the notes on the shopping cart screen that it is all to be combined in one case. (For example: 5" of EconoFlex™ + a 6" firm latex core = an 11" super mattress.)
Please contact us if you need more help in selecting the proper firmness. Our salespeople are excellent at helping direct you to a selection that will work best for you.
All raw Talalay and Dunlop latex have naturally occurring flaws which include small tears, air pockets, patches, and changing surface textures. Not all latex mattress foams are equal. Some latex is not even natural! We offer several types of latex.
Not all latex mattresses are created equally!
Anyone can advertise their latex as "100% Natural" even if the latex is not. Real "100% natural" latex should be made with at least 97% natural tree sap. Since some manufacturers opt for higher percentages of synthetic ingredients (a cheaper way to produce the foam), many consumers are misinformed about the latex they purchase. For example, if latex foam is 85% synthetic ingredients and 15% natural, it may be advertised as "Natural Latex" as long as the 15% of natural ingredients are 100% natural tree sap. Our Dunlop latex is independently certified 100% natural latex. The only way to truly know the composition of latex is to request a certified test.
Things to watch out for in your latex mattress...
Anything advertised as a mattress must pass strict fire codes enforced on all mattresses. Latex mattresses will always contain a flame barrier. You should pay attention to the type of flame barrier that is used, as most synthetic flame retardants use known carcinogens. We include a natural organic barrier (see our organic mattresses) or a thick, double knit fabric encasement with every mattress purchase. To meet the mattress flammability requirements the double knit fabric is a combination of natural cotton and polyester fibers with a silica weave woven into the bottom of the material. Steer away from any companies that refuse to disclose what they use. Also be wary of "green tea" or "soy" blended foams. The majority of these products use only 5% to 35% natural ingredients, so don't be fooled.
