Latex Mattresses………Because Sleep Is So Critical

latex mattressSleep is so critical, that it isn’t any wonder why everybody is trying to design a mattress that will help people get a better night’s rest.

Mattress manufacturers have tried to reinvent the mattress for many years using different materials for spring mattresses. Then the memory foam mattresses or the “natural” memory foam mattresses were introduced. All of them gained some sort of popularity and crept its ways into the homes of many consumers. Some were more comfortable than others but always with the use of many chemicals. The search for the ultimate sleep system still remains, one that is both comfortable and chemical/toxin free. Is it more important to be comfortable or safe while sleeping? Hard question, but I think both, no comprises.

You may be wondering now, is there a mattress both comfortable and organic. You better bet on it, the people at Dormio Organic Beds have been working on this solution and have created a range of options. The Dual Support Natural Latex Foam Mattresses are both comfortable and chemical/toxin free.

What is a latex mattress and why is it so comfortable?

Natural latex foam is very eco friendly since it is made with hevea milk from a rubber tree. Hevea milk is referred to as the “milky” sap from a rubber tree. It’s extracted much like the maple syrup from the maple trees here in Canada. Natural latex foam is durable and the latex foam mattress we offer is made with 100 percent natural foam which is expected to last more than 15 years.

Latex mattresses aren’t new, they are just becoming more popular and here’s why:

Latex is natural and stays naturally clean.

Latex is durable, unlike petroleum based foams which are very resilient and always bounces back.

Latex is able to take your body shape without creating pressure points, thus reducing tossing and turning during the night.

Latex doesn’t transfer motion. Your partner’s movements won’t disturb you.

Latex breathes, its tiny holes allow it to expand and contract with you, keeping you at a comfortable temperature.

Dormio has designed the most comprehensive latex line available anywhere in Canada.

Built entirely in Canada, the Dormio line up is designed for comfort. Not just for now, but for many years to come.

All of the units are zippered. This simply means that you can open up the casing and change the feel of your mattress by stacking the latex layers in a different order, or by simply adding new ones. You are not stuck with the same mattress feel forever, and since latex mattresses last for so long we think this a key factor when deciding what mattress to buy. Buy it for now because you like the way it feels but also buy it for the future because you can change the way it feels.

In addition to the latex, we also use a lot of wool. Wool is critical, as this allows us to avoid using chemical as fire retardants, as it meets fire regulations naturally.  Wool also adds “plushness” and controls temperature in our beds. And yes, the wool we use is completely organic.

Latex, combined with wool is the ultimate in sleep comfort. You can change the feel of your mattress anytime as your life changes. Oh, did we mention that most of our mattresses offer dual comfort. The mattress can feel the same throughout or the left side could feel different than right side, you decide. This means, you and your partner can each have the desired firmness/softness.

Our many years of experience tell us that the Dormio line up is as good as it gets. Contact us via phone our visit us at our comprehensive Mississauga Showroom.

Sleep Healthy,

We Use Pure Organic Wool to Create the Dormio Organic Latex Mattress

Wool is the perfect fibre for mattress padding, which is the reason we use wool whenever possible in our Dormio organic mattresses, organic wool pillows and organic wool toppers. It’s a natural, safe and mildew resistant fibre that science cannot imitate for its versatility, practicability, fire retardency and breathability. Wool keeps you cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter so it’s the ideal material for organic mattresses. Wool can absorb one third of its weight in moisture before feeling wet, yet water evaporates quickly due to its air channels between the fibres. Its excellent wicking action is perfect for keeping us dry when sleeping. We produce about a pint of water vapour during an eight hour sleeping cycle. Wool keeps a sleepers skin dry instead of wet and clammy.

Wool is renewable and is harvested without slaughtering the sheep. Organic wool is produced on farms where the sheep are raised organically; they are fed and cared for without the use of chemicals. The sheep do not go through routine chemical treatments such as drenching, dipping for parasites, antibiotics, vaccines, or growth hormones. Sheep that are raised organically graze on organic fields and are fed organic food. Only hot water and biodegradable soaps are used to wash organic wool and no sulfuric acid solution is ever used. The wool is then hand selected for carding.

Not only is organic wool the most breathable and insulating natural fibre on the planet, when used properly on an organic mattress, but  it’s also a great substitute for fire retardants, as wool is a natural fire retardant. Organic wool lets us produce a chemical free mattress for clients looking for a safer and healthier sleep.

Now you may be wondering how our organic wool is exactly utilized in the creation of our organic mattresses. There are 3 components which go into our organic mattress.

  • Natural Latex is used as the core of the mattress.
  • Organic Cotton used to cover the entire mattress (also known as the ticking)
  • Organic Wool is used as the padding for the mattress

The organic wool is an essential part in adding to the comfort of the natural latex which is used as the core. Due to the natural latex, organic mattresses are sometimes referred to as organic latex mattress or natural latex mattress.

At Dormio we just love wool and use it generously on most of our products. Our organic latex mattresses use wool, we have the largest selection of Organic wool duvets you’ve seen anywhere.
