Our Latex Mattress // 100% NATURAL TALALAY LATEX //
One of our most popular latex options, the Oxford 9" latex mattress strikes the perfect balance of support and comfort. With 4 layers of natural Talalay latex encased in an organic cotton and quilted wool case, experience the lavishness of layering, with a range of firmnesses.
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.
To simplify online ordering, we offer 5 firmnesses to choose from. That being said, the 4 layers of latex, each with their own customizable density, allow for an endless range of firmnesses, support and feel, far beyond what we can display online. For special requests, or to explore our greater range of options, please call or visit us in the shop.
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 9" 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.

Twin XL: 80"L x 38"W

Please note that our materials can change over time so if you'd like to place a repeat order, we ask that you reach out to us to see if that product has evolved since you last purchased.
For more in-depth information, please visit Our Materials.
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.

Love my Black Sheep Mattress and so proud to know they are made in Calgary. The multi-layers make for a very comfortable sleep and have personally eliminated some of the back pain I experience. My wife loves that she feels cooler at night and we both feel much more rested over the past month since getting this mattress.
Hi Louise and David, thank you for your review and support of Black Sheep as a local business! Getting a comfortable sleep is important and we’re glad that the Oxford was able to help with your back pain, as well as giving you a cooler sleep. Wishing you many night of restful sleep!
Very happy with our mattress, ability to have different firmness on each side is Great. Mattress does not overheat even when the weather is hot
Hi Carla! The different firmnesses on each side are a game changer for sure. We wanted everybody to get the right feel from their mattress for a good night’s rest. We’re glad you’re enjoying this feature and that the Oxford is also helping you keep cool during the summer.
The mattress is fabulous. Made to order and providing the best sleep ever. Also because it's custom made, it's a lot easier to get in and out of bed. Highly recommend.
