Oxford 12" Latex Mattress
*Be sure to select a firmness for each side when ordering a King or Queen bed. For single and double beds, select same firmness for both "sides".
The 12" Oxford is our most robust and luxurious option. With 5 layers of natural latex, encased in an organic cotton and wool case, experience the ultimate support with a highly customized feel to meet your unique sleeping needs.
The Oxford is perfect for couples, as the split-profile option can accommodate both partners’ unique sleep requirements and minimize movement transfer.
See our Choosing a Mattress Guide for more details, and to compare models.
The 5 layers of latex, each with their own customizable density, allows 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.
Our Oxford model is adjustable base friendly and best suited out of our three styles of mattress.
Outer Case Material:*Cover material might differ from the photos* There are two options for the outer cover of the mattress. These are the standard cover materials we currently use depending on the firmness chosen:
Soft & medium-soft: Tencel Top Cover
Medium, medium-firm, & firm: Organic Cotton Stretch Top Cover
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.
Please note that our materials can change over time so if you want to place a repeat order, please reach out to us to see if that product has evolved since you last purchased.
**Current build time for mattresses, bases and toppers is approximately 6 weeks from the date you place your order due to supplier delays. If the materials are available, your mattress may be completed sooner. If you require it by a particular day, please contact us to discuss options.
My experience with Black Sheep has been amazing from the moment I contacted them to purchase a bed.
I expected a transition period when I got the new bed until I got used to it…. But no, I lay down on my bed and oh my goodness, it is like sleeping on a supportive cloud. I love everything about this bed. The fact I can turn the mattress by myself (because of its amazing design) and the comfort of sleeping!
I would 100% recommend this company and wish I could give them more stars!
Thank you Jo for your review! We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your Black Sheep experience from the services to the product! The Oxford's unique build is great for those who don't want to flip the entire mattress and it's also a mattress that can be adjusted in the future! We're confident that you'll enjoy the mattress in 10 years as much as you do today! We wish you many more wonderful sleeps!
Solid company. Timely delivery. Ideal, breathable mattress. Both my wife and I have noticed that we are dreaming more, and waking up more rested. Strongly suggest the mattress.
Thank you so much for your review! We're very happy to hear that you and your wife are both sleeping better on your new mattresses. Thank you for supporting local--Happy sleeping!
Black Sheep worked with us for delivery date.... appreciated that. Also ...Great mattress! Best part of all beside having purchased a Great mattress is that they are Local.
Thanks Maurice. We were happy to work with you on the delivery, and we appreciate you supporting local! :)
For some time we have been concerned about the potential health risks involved with memory foam "gassing off" and wanted to find a more "healthy" alternative for a mattress. I just happened to come across Black Sheep on-line and decided to investigate their products. Since we live several hours from Calgary, it was a risk ordering something sight unseen, but we went ahead. A few weeks ago, we purchased a queen 12" Oxford mattress. Since we both have trouble sleeping, we decided to go with the best. In hindsight, the 9" mattress would probably have been adequate, but the one we have is very comfortable. We like the flexibilty offered by the company to change out the different layers in order to design what works best for us. We ordered medium-soft but found it a bit firm for our liking (we are seniors with sore joints!) so the company sent us a "soft" replacement layer. It is much better. We decided to purchase the extra layer and put it on one of our older beds. Both my husband and I have been sleeping better with the new mattress. We also got two of the thicker latex pillows and they are the best pillows we have ever used (and we have tried many)! My husband's neck and shoulder pain has greatly diminished. The service we have received has been very reassuring. Christian has been our contact person and has served us graciously and efficiently. We are very satisfied with our purchase, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this company to others.
Hi Elaine, thank you for sharing your feedback and experience! We're glad we were able to work with you to get the right firmness and that you're so happy with it. It's especially great to hear your husband's neck and shoulder pain has improved. Take care!
We purchased the 12' latex mattress from Black Sheep Mattress Company after doing much research online, and after visiting their warehouse and trying out all the mattresses. We were advised by our Naturopathic Physician to check out Black Sheep, as my husband and I were both working on improving our sleep, and it seemed like our firm 7 year old mattress was part of the problem. We are both side sleepers, and as we've been learning, our old bed was too firm for both of us. We chose a soft split profile queen fully latex mattress. It was delivered professionally and wrapped well, and the mattress cover is a work of art. Truly beautiful workmanship. Therapeutic is the only word that describes this mattress. It feels "healing". We ordered an extra 1/2 queen latex layer in a #2, and are playing around with the softness, and extra 1/2 is on our son's bed. We love that we can reorder a 2" latex layer down the road when one maybe isn't doing it's job, instead of throwing out a whole mattress. We also ordered the bed frame, so our latex layers would breathe well, and we are happy also with it's workmanship. A great company to do business with, that is working with our environment and not against. I have already recommended this company to my family and friends- it's that good.
Thank you James and Lorrie!
It's so great hearing that you found exactly what you needed! As you probably have guessed we called our company Black Sheep because we wanted to be different from the big box mattress stores. Providing the opportunity for a great sleep on a healthy and sustainable mattress is why we do what we do!
We truly appreciate the awesome comments and the recommendations!
All the best from our team and thank you again!
