We've expanded on the specifications of the product to better help you understand it's benefits.
A medium tension comfort grade is a good middle-of-the-road level of firmness and softness that gives the vast majority of people a fantastic nights sleep. Dubbed the Goldilocks of mattress firmnesses, the tension is generally regarded as a one-size-fits-all that suits average weighted people who are both side sleepers and back sleepers alike. For those with a bit more weight to them you should perhaps consider a firmer tension, same too if you are lower BMI, perhaps consider a softer tension.
Wool is a great option for the comfort layer of mattresses for a number of reasons. First, it is breathable enough to allow air to flow sufficiently to ensure great all-season long cooling that won't have you too hot, or too cold. Additional to this you have other advantages like durability, flexibility, flame and water resistance. Ultimately wool is a sustainable and renewable option that is environmentally friendly and supremely comfortable.
Pocket springs are like natures own springy piece of comfort, except they are not from nature. Alas, pocket springs are a very good part of a mattress and often found in the more premium models. Lower quality products will frequently use open coil spring setups, where pocket springs house each spring in a tiny pocket for additional stability and continued support. Pocket spring typically lasts longer than open coil due to this.
One of the big complaints when settling into a new mattress is that it does not feel as comfortable as they hoped, where this mattress shines is in the enhanced pressure relief that it offers. Each part of your body exerts different amounts of pressure against the mattress and through the use of springs and foams, these products are able to offer significant pressure relief as a result across the entire body.
A mattress with turning handles can be a great way to make flipping and moving your mattress easier. This type of mattress typically has handles on both sides, making it easy to grab and flip. Some models even have handles on the top and bottom of the mattress, making it easy to move around. If you're looking for a mattress that's easy to flip and move, a mattress with turning handles is a good option.
Pocket springs are always my default go-to when it comes to recommendations surrounding support systems. See, pocket springs just do it better thanks to their individual and pocketed nature they are able to contour to your body better, reacting to each and every movement your body makes and allowing for full zoned support. Generally perform better than poorer reflex foam and open coil spring units.
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.
Edge support offers a sturdy border across all edges of the mattress and gives you the opportunity to sleep in more positions and fully spread out on the product, embracing each and every part of the mattress and not having to stick to the middle. This is because the edging is reinforced and gives you that feeling of stability and roll-off prevention while you sleep.
Oh turning handles are pointless I hear you say. Just try flipping and turning this product without handles. It can be a pain. Remember that mattresses should be both rotated and flipped frequently, not a problem if you are opting for a sinle, but those doubles and kings can get heavy. Handles are very good.
Hand side stitching is a true mark of quality found in the upper-quality segment of mattresses. The process is very labor intensive as it involves attaching the side panel of the mattress to the pocket spring support layer found within a mattress helping to give better edge support and preventing roll-off.
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.
Hand tufting typically makes a mattress feel firmer due to how the stitching from the cover carries through the mattresses layers. It is a great way to keep everything tight and together within the different mattress layers and acts as an increased tension providing better back and neck support.
Most experts recommend a minimum of 4 inches on the top layer and 6 inches for the core so this is ideal at 11/12 inches. Generally, the heavier the load the deeper the mattress should be. This depth covers a wide range of body type sitting comfortably in the most popular section of the scale.
Handcrafted in the UK means that the product is built here, by people being paid a fair and honest wage using certified and safe products of good quality and construction. UK manufacturing is some of th best in the world and all of that is reflected in this product
Single sided means only one side is comfy. Positives are you only need to rotate the mattress occassionaly rather than the more cumbersome rotate and flip. Downside is the lifespan of the product may suffer as a result, only marginal, but worth mentioning.
Cotton is a natural material that is breathable and helps to regulate body temperature, making it a comfortable choice for sleeping. Cotton is also durable and will not break down as quickly as other materials, meaning your mattress will last longer.
The NBF is one of the most prestigious awarding federations in the industry, helped slightly by the fact that it is one of the only, however, it is still a great source of comfort knowing that this product holds approval by the team
29cm is a fairly good depth for a good quality mattress. Plenty of room for a decent spring system and enough fillings to provide more than enough comfort. While depth is not necessarily a guarantee of quality, it certainly helps.
Luxury wool, typically found in mattresses in a shredded and felted capacity is an upholstery fibre often used as a top comfort layer, but sometimes found further down in those mattress layers as part of the support structure

Fire resistant does not mean the product will never catch fire, rather, it will not go up in flames quite so quickly. Resistant to fire in the same way that I am resistant to kisses, sooner or later you end up giving in.
A product that is 100% recyclable is considered better for the environment and goes a long way to reducing your personal waste. Recyclable products and materials are able to be repackaged and remade into new products.
