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

The Feather & Black Holywell Pocket Spring Mattress is exclusive to Dreams and is one of their new rolled mattresses filled to the brim with high quality materials including natural fibres like cotton,wool and hemp.

Make no mistake though, these materials haven't been cobbled together, they make an excellent pairing, the cotton and wool help with temperature regulation while also offering good moisture-wicking properties allowing you to be both dry and comfortable as you sleep.

The Feather & Black Holywell Pocket Spring Mattress comes with an impressive 3,250 (Cortec™ + DNAir ) pocket springs (king), far more than the typical 1000 normal offered in even good-quality pocket spring mattresses, helping to achieve a supportive and comfortable sleep.

I like the new direction that Feather and Black are going with their new rolled range, it will compete with a plague of bed-in-a-box retailers who all offer what is effectively the same product churned out from different retailers.

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

Comfort Grade - Firm

If you find yourself suffering from back pain then you may want to look at an orthopaedic (fancy word for firm) mattress like this one here. Firmer surfaces put less stress on muscles while sleeping which might be exactly what you need to help your back

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: 20cm

The industry standard for mattress depth is 7 inches, with most offering a comfortable 10 to 14 inches. Generally, the higher the load, the deeper it needs to be. But quality is important as a well-built 10-inch mattress can be equally as comfortable and supportive as a budget 12-inch mattress. This 8 inch mattress site just above the most popular section of the scale, generally the safe choice to cover a wide range of sleepers.

Single sided - Rotate head to toe weekly for the first three months, then every month thereafter

A single sided mattress is typical for the industry and relates to how  a mattress has the comfort layer on one side of the mattress. only This means that the mattress only needs to be rotated rather than flipped. The benefit of single sided mattresses is that they require less upkeep in that there's no flipping, but also, there's less components involved in the creation which saves costs.

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.

20cm depth

20cm of mattress depth is enough to house a typical good quality spring system with decent support and comfort layers while also being thin enough to accessorise with standard mattress sheets. No need for deeper sheets and further purchases as a result.

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.

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. 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.

Comfort grade: Firm

A firm tension mattress is typically suited toward back and front sleepers as they provide a stable and even surface with a focus toward those who enjoy sleeping "on top" of their mattress rather than sinking into it.

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.

Compatible with our Sleepmotion bed frames

This mattress is single-sided

A single sided mattress will still need to be rotated to prevent settlement issues and potential dipping, however, it does not need to be flipped. The fillings and support are on one side only and as such, flipping would result in a very uncomfortable mattress half the time.

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.

Feather and Black gave us our mobility back !!!

Apart from staying in the odd ,decent ,hotel over the years ,a good nights sleep has eluded us .we've tried penny pinching but buying 'decent' mattresses , nothing has really worked. We went to dreams ,out of desperation really, tried their mattress recommending machine , lay on a few different mattresses ,even though it was during social distancing . Every thing was cleaned down and made safe before we arrived and after we had finished . We decided on the Feather and Black Holywell Pocket Sprung King size Matress as it was the one that seemed to suit both of our needs . We had to wait about ten weeks for it to arrive with the base and head board ,but it finally arrived . Without telling any lies we have had two weeks of sleep like we have not experienced in years . Also ,a lot of our extra leg, back and neck pains have gone along with the pins and needles . It's certainly better than a memory foam mattress that has lost its memory . The other main thing is that it no longer hurts coming down the stairs in the morning !!! It cost all of our money but is money well spent . A bit of extra room ,extra support in the right places ,comfortable and luxurious . I can't say anything more about it really . Its Magical !!!

Eco friendly but also comfortable

I chose this mattress and brand because of its eco friendly status and the fact that its made in the UK. As there weren't many reviews on the Dreams website it was a bit of a gamble choosing this mattress, as i normally rely on customer reviews to make a decision about purchasing. However, I'm very happy with the mattress as its well made, gives good support and is comfortable. It arrives rolled up so is easier to deliver to your chosen room but does need quite a few hours to expand fully before you can sleep on it.

Feather and Black Holywell FIRM mattress.

We were looking for a firm mattress and we were not disappointed - the mattress is exactly as described and we have been getting a good night’s sleep. What’s more important that it comes rolled up so taking it up the stairs was a doodle! I also have to call out the excellent customer service that I received from the north wales store and the manager Rob, absolutely fantastic.

Great Quality Mattress

This mattress is the most comfortable one We have had. It’s not too hard & doesn’t sink in places like other mattresses. It was easy to get up some awkward stairs as it comes vacuum packed. We bought this to go on the Richmond bed frame but it’s about 3 inches to short. Apart from that it’s fantastic & I’d definitely recommend it.

No doubt, you can trust these guys!

From start to finish an excellent service.. the staff were sincere and went above the call of duty. We just got married and our mattress arrived on time for when we moved in.. Every company needs to learn from the dreams service.. (I spoke with the Coventry branch) this is old fashioned good service, rare these days.

A sound and refreshing sleep!

The quality of manufacture and the natural materials used is of a extremely high standard and good to know that the natural materials are sourced local to the manufacturer. The support provided by the mattress gives a very comfortable and refreshing night's sleep. The best mattress we have ever slept on.

Best nights sleep in years!

We bought this a month ago after searching for a firm mattress with springs that came rolled up so we could get it up our stairs. We took a chance without trying it and we are so pleased we did, fabulous quality, a great nights sleep and neither of us have backache anymore! Highly recommend.

My dream mattress from Dreams

I did my research online and found the nearest store that had this on the shop floor to try. We booked an appointment (due to COVID I think ). This mattress was the best for us. At home it exceeded our expectations & we love it.

New mattress

After a couple of weeks of settling down and me getting used to a change of bed, it seems we will get along just fine for the next 10 yrs.

Mattress

It is a good mattress that is firm but hard to sleep on. It is very stable due to the number of springs and construction I presume.
