Mattress Review

So, if you have actually been out searching for bed mattress just recently, this might be the first time you've become aware of Tufy & Needle. Tufy & Needle is a brand-new business with a mission to change the method people purchase mattresses by making it a simple, transparent and pleasurable procedure rather than something to fear. Their mattress is primarily offered online and they ship direct to you for free. Often even by bicycle if you reside in the NYC area!


This is a spring-free mattress. In place of springs they layer latex over memory foam over a 7" high density foam base layer. On the top is a 1.5" layer of zoned non-allergenic latex (styrene-butadiene or SBR). Now, not everybody in America recognizes with latex, but they're very acquainted with it in Europe. Based on my experience, latex is the single best layering fabric to utilize in a mattress. It's breathable, keeps one's cool, lowers pressure points even much better than memory foam and lasts longer than any other product. But latex has a little a natural "spring" to it, so to stabilize it out it's layered over an 1.5" of 4lb density memory foam.

The memory foam assists to absorb energy and helps support the bed, and this combination of layering latex over memory foam is how they achieve this distinct feel. I've remained in the mattress industry for 14 years and I've never seen anyone else do this. I can inform they did some comprehensive testing to come up with this mix, due to the fact that the feel is ideal. They absolutely nailed it. Learn more about the Tufy & Needle design here.

Who Is This Best For?

Tufy & Needle is a perfect pick for you if you like the idea of a spring-free mattress however dislike that sort of slow moving, quicksand feel typical with numerous memory foam mattresses. This bed adheres immediately. It's excellent for back, side and stomach sleepers, nevertheless, I would state that if you're searching for something more extreme, like extremely soft or very firm, this might not be very well for you. (At the same time, I usual caution individuals to prevent the extremes anyhow unless you have a medical condition that requires it.).


The important things I like the very best about Tufy & Needle (besides their transparent supply chain) is their careful attention to information. I can tell that they were really diligent about the materials they opted to use. The mattress is likewise 100 % made in the UNITED STATE.

For example, they chose a non-allergenic version of latex that is licensed to the Oeko Tex 100 basic, which is an extremely tough European certification that suggests there is nothing in the latex that remains in any way harmful to humans or the environment. And both the memory foam and foam base layer are CertiPUR accredited to have low VOC's, consist of no PBDE's, restricted phthalates, no formaldehyde and no heavy metals. (I encourage individuals to always try to find memory foam that is CertiPUR licensed.).

I also actually value their fire obstacle. That might look like an unusual thing to mention, but the majority of people don't recognize that memory foam mattresses are normally doused with chemical fire retardants in order to pass the federal fire tests. Tufy & Needle wished to have the ability to pass them without using any harmful chemicals or finishes, so they make use of a proprietary knit sock made with a yarn that has a silica core. So instead of the normal spray chemical fire retardants, it's a fabric wrapping around the inner layers and it actually works by suppressing the flame by forming a barrier when burned. It's also licensed to the Oeko Tex 100 conventional, meanings that it ares safe for children. This was a really thoughtful proceed their part.

Another big positive to me is the special feel they have actually been able to develop. It's really comfy. It's the best balance of convenience and encourage without any irritating 'quicksand' feel whatsoever. I think their concept of layering zoned latex over memory foam was a stroke of genius. I've seen the reverse done in the past-- layering memory foam over latex-- but that totally defeats the purpose of using latex in the first place. You truly want to be right on top of the latex to get all of the great benefits of it because it is such a fantastic layering material.
