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...)
***Please note: currently, we may require an additional 2-3 week build time for Devon and Suffolk mattresses due to the availability of materials. Please contact us if you have any concerns about the timing of your order.
See our Choosing a Mattress Guide for more details on spring types, and to compare models.
Super comfortable! Excellent mattress - very happy with purchase.
Wonderful customer service and helpful advice. I chose the mattresses while visiting in Calgary and they were shipped for us all the way to our home in Nova Scotia, with the white glove service. I chose the Suffolk mattresses as the models with the latex were too soft for our taste, and these come in one firmness; perfect. They are wonderful, firm yet enveloping in comfort. Though unusually heavy for a mattress, it will take teamwork to flip them, when I am on the mattress it feels like it is the most solid, sturdy, and comfortably supportive mattress I have ever slept on. My mother feels the same, even immediately after double hip replacement surgery the mattress was a dream, and says she doesn't wake up in the night from stiffness and discomfort like with the other mattress she had.
I have tried many big box store beds that were more expensive, lasted a few months and I had craters in the high tech foam crap. With arthritic shoulders and awaiting a hip replacement I had spent many a painful sleepless night.
The bonnell suffolk mattress I put on a solid wood deck on a steel bed frame. Love the ease of getting on and off the lower bed. Can sit on the edge of bed to dress and not slide off. Best of all I can roll over in the night with ease . Also am sleeping on my bad shoulder in comfort and the bad hip isn't aching all night from sagging into the crater. This bed is more like the old fashioned spring style beds. I am sleeping better . Excellent staff who explained their product well. Money well spent and the shipping to rural Saskatchewan was very reasonable and convenient.
We found Black Sheep on the Internet while searching for the right matteress. I phoned and Chris answered all my questions. We ordered the Suffolk and had it delivered to B.C. We are very pleased with the product and are getting a good night’s rest. The wool matteress cover is also good quality and stays in place. Good service, great mattress !
We did a lot of research before settling on this mattress, and we are so pleased with our choice. We were able to try it out at the Calgary showroom and we were shown the same care and attention as customers as black sheep obviously puts into their mattresses. It was made quickly after we ordered and shipped (we are out of town, so it was a curbside delivery, but the delivery person was lovely and helped me get it safely in the house).
Sleeping on it is a dream. Firm, but not too firm (we added a feather bed), and just feels so well made. Happy with our investment.
