Becky's Thoughts On The Feather & Black Hazelmere Pocket Spring Mattress

The Feather & Black Hazelmere Pocket Spring Mattress is part of the Feather and Black brand, a subdivision of Harrison Spinks, similar to the Flaxby range. Feather and Black have a great reputation in the mattress industry for providing high quality and highly functional premium mattresses. This time is no different.

To start, we've got 7750 Cortec™ pocket springs. Pocket springs are at the top of the mattress pyramid in terms of quality, open coil, bonnell, foam and others are often used as a base in cheaper mattresses and simply do not offer the same level of support to your body. With pocket springs, it really is most frequently a case of the more-the better and 7750 is certainly toward the absolute top end.

Normally pocket springs are not recyclable but what makes Cortec™ quad pocket springs stand out is they are 100% recyclable and glue-free. Ideal for the environmentally conscious.

With a top layer/comfort layer of pure natural fillings combining premium fabrics like cotton, wool and hemp, this mattress oozes class from top to bottom, including it's finish, in a traditional hand-tufted cover.

With a tension rating of medium, I'd say that this products support will be suitable for most people with an average BMI that suffer no discomfort from back pain or neck pain at present. 

In all, a great mattress that comes at a price point many may shy away from, but actually, when you consider you are going to be spending 30% of your life on this mattress for the next 7 years on average, it actually works out fairly cheap.

What Makes The Feather & Black Hazelmere Pocket Spring Mattress Great?

Comfort Grade - Medium

A Medium firmness mattress is the most common build offered due to the range of suitability offered in such a mattress. This type of mattress will be better suited toward averagely weighted people, while lighter people should opt for a medium-light, and heavier people considering a medium-firm.

25cm depth

25cm depth is about average for a mattress, it leaves plenty of room for good quality fillings while still allowing you to fit a standard sheet over it.

Hand-tufted

Hand Tufting is a labor intensive process that involves securing the fittings to a mattress rather than having them operate independently and loose within. This small act not only secures, but also leads to the mattress lasting longer and feeling firmer. A hand-tufted mattress is great for anyone looking for additional stability while they sleep.

Depth: 25cm

Most experts recommend a minimum 10 inches, 4 inches on the top layer and 6 inches for the core so this size is an ideal balance of size and performance. Generally, the heavier the load the deeper the mattress should be.

Double sided - Turn regularly and rotate head to toe weekly for the first three months, then every month thereafter

A double sided mattress has the comfort layer on both sides with the support layer sandwiched in the middle. This setup allows you to both flip and rotate the mattress allowing you to benefit from twice the surface area of comfort, improve settlement of fillings and increase the longevity of the sleep area on the mattress. All great things.

Rolled for convenience

Roll up mattresses, also known as bed-in-a-box mattresses are fairly new to the scene, first cropping up via the likes of Eve and Simba back in 2016. Since then there has been a rise in popularity due to their lower price point (due to delivery and storage costs) and their convenience for getting up stairs. Typically these mattresses have much the same support and comfort as a traditional mattress even with the positive points mentioned.

Pure and natural fillings

Pure and natural fillings are typically from animal or plant fibers. These can include: Wool, Cashmere, Hemp or Latex commonly.

Damask sleeping surface

A damask cover is a quilt or blanket that has a pattern of small, repeated designs. These small designs are usually made from blocks of color. A damask cover can be made from many different types of fabric, such as cotton, satin and silk.The patterns on the damask covers can be simple or elaborate. The patterns can be made up of one color or a variety of colors.The name “damask” comes from the city of Damascus in Syria. The first damasks were woven in this city.

Exclusively handmade for Feather & Black by Harrison Spinks

Harrison Spinks produce mattresses that are handmade in Yorkshire. They are filled with quality, long-lasting and natural mattress fillings as a comfort layer and further enhanced  by innovative pocket springs as a support layer. Harrison Spinks mattresses are renowned worldwide for their quality.

100% recyclable, glue-free Cortec™ quad pocket spring unit

The ideal choice in construction when choosing a mattress, pocket sprung mattresses offer, in our opinion, the best combination of support and comfort. The number of pocket springs can be equally important however

Pure, natural fillings including cotton, wool and hemp

Pure and natural fillings are typically from animal or plant fibers. These can include: Wool, Cashmere, Hemp or Latex commonly.

Chemical-free, damask sleeping surface made from a breathable wool and viscose blend

A damask cover is a quilt or blanket that has a pattern of small, repeated designs. These small designs are usually made from blocks of color.

Traditionally hand-tufted to keep fillings aligned

A tufted mattress is often a sign of high quality, Unlike quilted mattress which binds the soft layer directly to the other layers, traditional tufting uses several thick straps to hold the layers together through the spring unit, binding it at each side.

Rolled for convenience and easy delivery

Roll up mattresses, also known as bed-in-a-box mattresses are fairly new to the scene, first cropping up via the likes of Eve and Simba back in 2016. Since then there has been a rise in popularity due to their lower price point (due to delivery and storage costs) and their convenience for getting up stairs. Typically these mattresses have much the same support and comfort as a traditional mattress even with the positive points mentioned.

Rotate regularly - rotate head to toe once a week for the first three months, then just once a month

Rotating the mattress remains an important step in maintenance. The comfort and support layers of a mattress settle over time and it is necessary to rotate at certain periods to help reduce risk of dipping while you sleep in the same patterns and locations across the mattress.

Comfort grade: Medium

A medium tension mattress like this is the goldilocks of mattress tensions. Not too soft, nor too firm, medium is typically suitable for the vast majority of people that are looking for a good nights sleep. If you are of average build without back or neck problems, this should be a suitable product. If you are of lower BMI and a side sleeper, consider a softer mattress, whereas if you are of a higher BMI and suffer neck and back pain, consider a firmer tension.

Compatible with Sleepmotion bed frames

This mattress is double-sided.

A double sided mattress has the comfort layer on both sides with the support layer sandwiched in the middle. This setup allows you to both flip and rotate the mattress allowing you to benefit from twice the surface area of comfort, improve settlement of fillings and increase the longevity of the sleep area on the mattress. All great things.

Turn over regularly - flip over regularly for the first three months, then just seasonally

It is import to rotate your mattress because it helps ensure even settlement of fillings and ensure even distribution is maintained. Further to this it also means that more than one area of the mattress is used equally, increasing longevity and lifespan as part of typical mattress care.

Definatly recommend!

Unbelievably comfortable and feels luxurious! Plus environmentally friendlier than a lot of mattresses. I have a lot of arthritis and multiple back problems needing surgery, and the dreams bed instore suggested a firm tempur. However after trying my sons brick for a few nights I was left in more pain. After lock down I had to canx my initial order as I wouldnt be able to put my bed together and reordered this and wow I am so happy I did. Its very soft and squidgy compared to tempur memory foam, but my back pain has all but disappeared in the morning, I dont have pressure pain in my hips and shoulders as the bed moulds itself around you like a hug and it is so comfortable, the other wonderful thing about this bed is it feels wonderfully cool getting in and doesnt make you sweat during the night. My 8 year old is now sleeping with me as its more comfortable than his similar priced mattress. The only down side is it went down in price within a couple of weeks of my buying it but even so, at full price it is still worth the money I paid to wake up pain free rather than in tears from a bad night.

Over the Moon!

I couldn’t be any more chuffed! I used to own a bed shop and sold hundreds of mattresses, some very ‘top end’ yet this rolled one (and rolled are usually pretty economy style) is pure luxury. It’s worth every penny and I will never buy another mattress unless it’s by Harrison Spinks who manufactures these with perfection! And yes, I very cheesily must add that it’s like ‘sleeping on a cloud.’ We had to have rolled, due to a very unusual loft access and the choices out there in the rolled variety are usually either as thin as a pancake or hold most/some memory foam/other foams which I can’t stand for numerous reasons such as toxicity and ‘sinking into’ and heat. This is deep, puffy, expanded instantly and just has beautiful materials all over with great handles for moving it about. It’s beyond heavy and holds I think it was approx 6000, as in 6K of pocket springs! On average a matt usually has anywhere in the region of 1-3K so I was already blown away at 6! Can’t rave about it enough :)

Love it, Love it

Had this 3 weeks now and it's everything I had hoped for. Having watched Inside the factory at Harrison Spinks decided that we would have one of their mattresses. This really is everything that previous reviewers have said. So comfy it just seems to mould around you. Pricey in comparison to some but oh so worth it. Can't recommend this highly enough. Bought unseen as we are in lockdown, delivered to front hall by the delivery men. Only problem was getting it upstairs as so heavy. After much pulling, pushing and a few choice words it was unpacked and left for a day to come back to shape.

Perfect

After purchasing another brand my back became really painful and 3 months later I visited dreams at Bolton Middlebrook. I was measured and showed this matteress. It arrived a few weeks later. After the 1st night I was comfy but still in pain but by night 3 my pain was reduced and I can now bend. At the end of the 1st week I feel fabulous. The mattress is comfy, great support and worth every penny. The staff especially the gentleman who sold us the mattress was great and the delivery guys just finished the whole experience. Thank you for great service and a great product

Comfortable with a capital C.

It's only two weeks in so too early to say whether it will stay the course without developing structural issues however first impressions are that this mattress is probably the most comfortable one I have ever slept on. I used to be only able to sleep on my back but am equally comfortable on my side. Both me and my other half are having far better quality sleeps too. An old back problem that flared up with the previous mattress has now settled again. After two disasters in quick succession with online memory foam mattresses this is an absolute delight.

5

Highly recommend this mattress

Husband suffers with bad back so we decided it was time to invest in a good mattress to see if that would make a difference. I have to say that his symptoms have definitely improved since the mattress was received on 8 December 2020. Mattress is extremely comfortable and the very well made. It is heavy though and I am just extremely grateful that the delivery guys from Dreams carried it up the stairs for us!! So far so good and would highly recommend this product.

Expensive but bloody outstanding.

The wife has struggled with back problems and lack of sleep for the last few years. We’ve been trying a few different mattresses at a cost that I don’t want to even think about. All I can say is this mattress is worth it’s weight in gold. After 2/3 nights getting used to it the wife’s back problems have been helped massively to the point were I’m now not in trouble for buying the wrong mattresses anymore.

Feather & Black Hazelmere mattress

In my opinion it is excellent quality and very comfortable. It does take a little time to get used to it and turning head and foot every week for the first 3 months is a bit of a pain but necessary. It also needs to be flipped over once per month. This is to ensure the filling settles properly. Other than this, which in reality is not a very long time, I am well pleased and am happy to recommend it.

5
