Why our sleep experts loved it
Today we're looking at the Flaxby Natures Dawn Pocket Sprung Mattress which, as the name suggests is a high performance pocket spring mattress with some unique all-season properties that will make for a great all-year round nights sleep. Let's unpack more below.
To start, the base layer. The base layer features an impressive array of pocket springs in impressive quantities, in this instance, 2475 of them. With pocket springs it is generally a case of the more, the better with the average coming in at around 800-1000. The pocketed springs are my favourite base layer spring thanks to their impressive body contouring paired with roll together prevention and a full surface area with edge to edge support.
The tension of the layer is a firm comfort grade which will be ideal for those who sleep on their back/stomach or are of a heavier build. We generally recommend a medium tension for those that sleep on their side but as with all mattresses, subjectiveness plays a role. One of the main benefits of the pocket spring support base is within the back pain relief offered thanks to the firmer spring tension which provides contoured and measured support across the entirety of the mattress giving great all-round support.
Onto the upper layer and as the name suggests, you have a natural and deep layer of luxurious cotton and wool, both of which are extremely soft and offset the firmer tension to give a measured response that has enough bounce back with enough sinkage. One of the key benefits of the pocket spring and natural layer is that they work hand in hand to increase breathability, this means that you won't get too warm while you sleep as airflow is massively increased. You won't be too hot, nor too cold giving you a great all-season mattress that will also be hygienic and more durable.
Much like the entirety of the Flaxby range, the Natures Dawn Pocket Sprung Mattress is produced in the UK and handmade, giving your mattress that special touch that only skilled craftsman can create. What's more, you get a 40 night trial to see if you like it, if not you'll have the option to swap out for a different model in line with the Dreams 40-Night Sleep Guarantee and it's terms and conditions.
The mattress is specifically produced for effective spinal alignment and pressure relief, combined with the natural and hygienic materials on offer, the product allows a comfortable nights sleep at an affordable price point.
Based on the Flaxby Nature’s Halo that we reviewed previously, this mattress is much the same but with more springs of a stronger durability for increased reliability and durability.
