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 tend to be more popular with adults, as they provide plenty of support, while allowing for some contouring effect, and minimizing movement transfer between partners. Bonnell springs are a time-tested design with a firmer, more uniform support and bouncier feel, and are especially popular for children.
See our Choosing a Mattress Guide for more details on spring types, and to compare models.
My first night’s sleep on a Suffolk mattress was so much better than the traditional one we left behind. Goldilocks said it best.....and this one is juuuust right!
Considering how much I payed, I expected more personal service, even as an internet customer. The mattress is very high for a twin one-I struggle with moving it, as it is very heavy, and I am scared of falling out of my bed. But it is very comfortable, and I sleep well.
We got the Suffolk Mattress with a wool topper. The combination feels like sleeping on a cloud, and we are very pleased. Also, we loved that even on Day 1 of having the mattress, it did not have any strong off-gassing smells. The sales and delivery experiences were positive too, as other reviewers have mentioned. Highly recommend Black Sheep to anyone looking for a quality mattress.
My husband and I are both bigger people. We have had trouble to find mattresses four our King Size bed that will be comfortable, yet firm. We met Christian and Liza on a Saturday morning. The impeccably tidy and organized workshop impressed us to no end. Christian is very knowledgeable about choosing a mattress for the individual customer's needs and he does not do any high pressure sales. Liza has responded to every single e-mail that I have sent to the company. I recommend that any person who is in the market for a mattress should give these people a chance to quote. You will most likely choose their product and you won't regret your decision.
