Our Latex Mattress // 100% NATURAL TALALAY LATEX //
With 3 layers of natural Talalay latex, encased in an organic cotton and quilted wool case, the Oxford 7" latex mattress provides a range of customization, at a comfortable price point for this sought after design. Due to its lower profile (compared with the 9" and 12"), the 7" performs best for those seeking a medium to firm feel.
Natural latex is unique in feel in that it has natural pushback, sleeps much cooler than synthetic foams, and is excellent at reducing motion transfer. Unlike memory foam, it is not heat-activated, nor does it have the typical memory foam "sink" sensation.
The Oxford is perfect for couples, as the dual-profile option can accommodate both partners’ unique sleep requirements and minimize movement transfer. Our Oxford model is also adjustable base friendly.
See our Choosing a Mattress Guide for more details on how to choose a firmness, and to compare the Oxford with other models. Not sure if you have the proper foundation? Check out our Choosing a Foundation Guide for more information.
The Oxford comes in a broad range of firmnesses. To simplify online ordering, we offer 5 firmnesses to choose from, but feel free to reach out over the phone so we can go over the options in more detail.
For Queen and King sizes, it can be built dual-profile (where the two halves are different firmnesses).
*Be sure to select a firmness for each side when ordering a King or Queen bed. For Twin and Full mattresses, you must select the same firmness for both "sides", as they cannot be made dual-profile.
There are two options for the case material of the mattress. Please note that the case might differ from the photos.
These are the standard case materials we use depending on the firmness chosen:
Soft & Medium-Soft: Tencel Top Case
Medium, Medium-Firm, Firm: Organic Cotton Stretch Case (pictured)
Please let us know if you would like us to use a specific material for your mattress, otherwise we will go by the information provided above. If you have two different firmnesses, we will choose the case material according to the softer side of the mattress.
This mattress arrives deconstructed with a separate case and layers of latex wrapped in cotton muslin. Set up instructions are provided. Queen and Kings come in half layers so each side will be "built" inside the mattress according to firmness.
This Oxford has a 7" depth.
We adhere to standard dimensions as much as possible. Please note the dimensions are give or take an inch, as our mattresses are handmade and materials can vary.

For longevity, the internal layers of this mattress should be flipped once every 4-6 months. We strongly recommend making sure you have the proper foundation to support your mattress. For more information visit our Choosing a Foundation page.
We recommend using a mattress protector to prevent spills and stains from damaging your mattress.
It took less than a week to adjust to the new mattress and now there is a significant improvement in the length and quality of our sleep.
Hi Jim! Happy to hear you’re adjusting so well to the Oxford and getting better sleep. It’s truly meant to be!
I’m currently on an excursion across Canada and sleeping on it every night. I’ve stayed at a couple of friends places and prefer to sleep in the van. So comfortable. Very happy with the mattress. I’m sleeping better than at home though not sure if that’s the holiday or the mattress.
Hi Dave! We’re so excited to hear you’ve brought the Oxford with you on holiday and you’re getting really good sleep. Thank you for your support of Black Sheep Mattress and we wish you a safe, but exciting journey across the country.
Sleeping very well. We didn't have it delivered and it was very easy to assemble. I like that in the long run, it is very sustainable.
Hi Linda! We're happy to hear that you're sleeping well! That's definitely one of the great things about the Oxford, it's easy to handle and assemble, and adaptable in the long run! Happy sleeping!
My husband and I love this matress. On our old mattress we were constantly tossing and turning, waking up not rested. Not anymore. Totally worth the money and is excellent quality. Our sleep quality is involved in everything in the body so it was very important to us. We definitely recommend Black Sheep. The staff was also very professional and friendly. Thank you!
Thank you, Rosa. We're delighted that your sleep quality has improved so much, and that you love the mattress! We really appreciate your recommendation and wish you all the best!
You provide a great product. I also bought the cotton & wool topper as well as the wool mattress protector. I have the coziest nest going!
Thanks Elizabeth! Sounds like you have the perfect set up!
