I created this separate thread because I did not want to hijack the very similar thread already open but my question is similar.
Firstly, love the site - it has been a wealth of information and I have been reading through the articles over the last few days and finally made a post.
I recently moved to New Zealand and we don’t have a wide range of options here but I am in the market for a new mattress and came across this site: http://www.futonz.co.nz/natural-latex-mattresses.html
they seem to be a local company which I always prefer. They provide several options but I am most interested in their latex mattress which is covered by wool… Most specifically I am looking at the middle of the range premium which they describe as being 100mm high density firm latex surrounded by 250gsm wool with a loft of 150mm.
I am used to traditional spring mattresses and have purchased a mattress in a box which was surprisingly good. these were very thick mattresses.
My concerns are:
-is the latex to thin? 100mm does not sound like much
-is the wrapping to little? 50mm does not seem like much
there are other options like their top of the range Seraphic mattress which has 3 latex layers which can be customized for softness. the total thickness of the Latex layer is 15cm or another option of 20cm. Having just moved we have a tight budget but would this type of customization be worth the extra money. Would it impact durability?
The 3rd option they present is layers of cotton, wool and latex and their own innovafibre (polyester):
I don’t have much knowledge but I was looking at the “latex core futon” with a 50mm latex core and layers of cotton and wool. Again it seems very thin so I am worried about comfort and durability.
Both my partner and I prefer firm mattresses so any firm option is good for us. I plan on visiting them this weekend but would be good to know what to look for and what questions to ask.
Would be very interested in your opinion…
