The Suffolk mattress uses a classic, century-old design combining a durable, high quality spring with thick layers of cotton and wool in an organic cotton case. The flippable Suffolk allows the natural fibres to rest and bounce back after being compressed. Easily our most popular option for children and teens, but a favourite for all ages.
This is a medium-firm mattress, perfect for those who like a little softness with plenty of support.
Choose from Bonnell or pocket coil springs:
Pocket coil springs are the most popular with adults, as they provide ample support with some contouring effect, and minimize movement transfer between partners.
Bonnell springs are a time-tested design with a firmer, more uniform support and bouncier feel, and are especially popular with children - for both sleeping and jumping on. (But you didn't hear it from us...)
See our Choosing a Mattress Guide for more details on spring types, and to compare models.
*Mattresses, bases and toppers are typically built within 2-3 weeks of the date you place your order. If you require it sooner, please contact us to discuss options.
We absolutely love this mattress. We have been sleeping on it for 8 months and love it more each day. It is firm but giving (we love a firm mattress!). Sleeping on a wool mattress makes such a difference - we really feel the value of the natural textiles and it's hard to describe how it feels different than other mattresses but it does. The one thing we would love is if there were handles on the side of the mattress so we can flip it more easily every six months. Thanks for your craftsmanship and your friendly service! Worth every penny.
The mattress is very comfortable and well made using the best materials. Would definitely recommend it!
Very well made, resulting an excellent sleep night after night!
It's great to hear that you are enjoying it! Thank you, Dustin!
Finally a great night sleep!
We appreciate the purity of the mattress contents as well as the quality used in the manufacturing process.
We have had our black sheep mattress for several months now and have enjoyed the superior support and comfort that we have not found in any other mattress. Definite 10 stars out of five rating!
Thank you Black Sheep!
After the first night, we asked: Is this Suffolk mattress for real? Every night has been a dream. The mattress embraces the body with maximal comfort. Gone are the pains and aches from the store bought (expensive) mattresses. After years of grumbling about the poor quality of one mattress after another, we finally discovered Black Sheep Mattresses.
If sultan Shahryar had had a Suffolk mattress Cheherazade would not have needed to spend One Thousand and One Nights to tell him stories.
