Why our sleep experts loved it

Quality sleep is inarguable - a necessity for ensuring great health, mood and neurological functioning. The stakes are even higher when you understand the play; your sleeping position, body weight, desired comfort levels and so much more – they all factor into your quest for ultimately unmatched comfort. Admittedly, the mattress landscape is flooded with various options, but there’s a very fascinating contender that stands out in craft, design and execution: The Flaxby Masters Guild 6950 Pocket Sprung Mattress.

How We Tested

Eager to give this mattress a comprehensive review, we left no stone unturned. We focused on key factors such as delivery, set-up process, firmness for both back and side sleepers, heat regulation, the composition and quality of materials, and overall comfort during different sleeping conditions. Over two weeks, we evaluated the mattress across different metrics, giving enough time to adjust to the mattress providing a more accurate reflection of its performance.

Design and features

The Flaxby Masters Guild 6950 Pocket Sprung Mattress parades a parade of impressive features that culminate into a design that is truly engaging. This mattress comes with a plethora of micro-springs designed to effortlessly contour to your body regardless of your preferred sleeping position. A key factor to note is the availability of two comfort grades – medium and firm - to cater to a wider array of sleep needs.

The mattress fills contain luxurious natural British wool, hemp and flax all grown within the countryside of Yorkshire. This sustainable ethos extends to the incorporation of the glue-free, 100% recyclable Cortec™ springs – a testament to environmental consciousness. The smooth quilted sleep surface, coupled with inner tufting, provides stability, comfort, and a pleasing aesthetic to enhance your bedroom setting.

The durability of the mattress is not left to chance. Two rows of side stitching enhance longevity, ensuring you will get the most from your investment in this mattress. The fact that this mattress is handcrafted by Harrison Spinks, one of the reputed names in the UK’s sleeping solution industry, speaks volumes about its quality, attention to detail and durability.

Mattress comfort

Having used this mattress for two weeks, it was easy to see why it stands out in terms of comfort. The medium-firm choice hit the sweet spot where it's firm enough to give that desired supportive feel while maintaining an inviting softness thanks to the top layer. Indeed, the balance between firmness and softness crafts an extremely comfortable sleeping setup.

Suitability

This mattress, with its medium tension, caters excellently to both back and side sleepers. While it does a brilliant job for side sleepers, back sleepers who crave more contouring and support might do well from a firmer variant. It’s refreshing to note that this mattress's superior breathability ensures a comfortable night's sleep regardless of how hot you may run while asleep.

What customers thought

Customer feedback strongly supports this positive review. One customer praised the mattress as "perfect for those who want all the benefits of a traditional mattress, but with a beautifully soft quilted cover." The customer found the mattress incredibly comfortable and highly recommended it, solidifying our opinion of the excellent comfort this mattress offers.

The verdict

All things considered, the Flaxby Masters Guild 6950 Pocket Sprung Mattress genuinely impresses. With the dual offering of medium or firm comfort grade, sleepers of different preference can experience an ultimately engaging offering. The mattress’s composition of wool, hemp, and flax not only makes for a sustainable sleeping solution but offers unmatched thermal regulation. Though the delivery time might be a tad longer than most, its handmade nature justifies the wait.

The simple fact remains: if you are searching for a premium, comfortable and supportive mattress with all the trimmings of a traditional model with a modern twist, the Flaxby Masters Guild 6950 Pocket Sprung hovers on the top of the list.

Suitability

*Assuming average weight, suitability will vary dependant on body type, use the quiz above for a more tailored guide.
  • Back Sleepers
    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • The amount of support offered from a mattress will vary depending on the firmness of the tension and the type of support layer used. Based on a person of average build.
  • Side Sleepers
    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • If you sleep on your side you typically need a supportive tension that is not too firm, nor too soft. This is because your hips and shoulders need adequate sinkage.
  • Stomach Sleepers
    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • Stomach sleepers need a reasonable amount of tension in the base support layer to adequately offer body contouring and help prevent aches and pains. Results will vary based on your build.

Performance

    ★★★★★
  • Mattresses that feature breathable materials help promote airflow and keep you cool making for a more hygienic night's sleep.
  • Turning on mattress

  • Certain materials like memory foam can make it difficult to move about on the mattress while you toss and turn. Same too for pillow tops which can create a cloud like sensation which can make manoeuvrability challenging.

Bed is bliss with the Flaxby Masters Guild 6950 Mattress. The Cortec springs provide excellent support, adapting perfectly to my contours. Only gripe? It has a peculiar smell initially, but fades over time. Otherwise, it's a dream for side sleepers like me.

Just love the mattress' perfect blend of firmness and softness. The wool, flax, and hemp provide the right amount of comfort. However, the lingering farmyard smell is quite off-putting. Definitely wish it had a more pleasant aroma.

Surprisingly, the Flaxby Masters Guild mattress' natural fillings deliver on the comfort level but the hemp and flax odor was a minor distraction. Clearly supportive and well-structured but would've preferred a neutral scent.

The Flaxby Masters Guild 6950 mattress offers excellent support with contour-adapting springs, quite the relief for my back. However, the initial farmyard-esque smell can be off-putting, hoping it fades with time.

Questions and Answers About The Flaxby Masters Guild 6950 Pocket Sprung Mattress

Prospective customers had the following questions about the product

Pete2333
The depth is supposed to be 23 cm. It has just been delivered as new and it is actually 33cm. Is this because the hemp and the wool layers will compact?? We understand it has come straight from the factory. A difference of 10cm is a lot.

Answer: Mattresses are measured tape to tape. This mattress specification is 25cm, we will update the web information to reflect this. If you are measuring the fullest part of the mattress this will be bigger than the stated measurement as we measure at a fixed point as the total measurement is too subjective.Thanks

Is the depth 23cm or 10 inches? It can't be both.

Answer: The depth of the mattress is 23cm, the system has automatically rounded up the conversion to 10 inches I apologise for this error. The correct conversion should be 9.05 inches.Thanks

How often do you rotate this mattress? The cardboard label says rotate with the seasons the material one says regularly!! Which should it be?!?!

Answer: At Dreams we recommend rotating your mattress regularly. We advise to rotate head to toe weekly for the first 3 months and then every month thereafter.
