The newest mattress on the online factory direct sites is the Loom & Leaf mattress. This particular luxury mattress only uses the best materials, and has some pretty impressive features such as the cooling feature which will keep you cool all night, and it even comes with the best feeling for all sorts of sleepers. Although, it happens to be a newer mattress, it is actually being made by one of the online mattress founders, Saatva. Saatva has been creating and selling the best mattresses for over 5 years, and has reached cloud nine with the Loom and Leaf. It’s not a cheap mattress so check out my Loom & Leaf coupons page.
This mattress is made with 4 different layers. It stands about a foot tall, so it is thicker than your average mattress. This added thickness really adds to the feel, durability, and support.
The first layer on top is made of 2 inches of high quality gel foam that really conforms to your body. That is 4 pounds of memory foam that is made with a cooling gel. This gel is made with the gel swirl technique. Believe it or not, this helps to make sure that the gel is evenly throughout the mattress and that it is all through the foam. After saying that, the thing that really makes this layer so special is that it has a medical grade cooling gel. This panel is put on the top foam layer and gives you the best cooling experience. You will find this gel in burn units and in hospitals.
The next layers are 2 ½ inches of visco elastic memory foam. That is another 5 pounds of memory foam that happens to be the core of the mattress. It really contours the body and offers deep compression support.
The third layer is 2 inches of transitioning loft pad. This particular layer works with the top and bottom layers to give you great body contouring, improves comfort and support.
The last layer is 5 ½ inches of support base. This foundation is made from a high density foam that gives a strong supportive base for the whole mattress.
The cover for the mattress is made of a quilted organic cotton. That means that it isn’t just soft; it is breathable and has a great textured feel to it, especially when it comes to the embroidered places. Additionally, the cover is also made using natural thistle. This happens to be naturally flame retardant, which is quite an unexpected and nice feature.
The cover is also quilted with a small layer of foam. This small foam layer will give you extra softness and feels great when you lay flat on the mattress.
When it comes to style and aesthetics, the cover is a nice added touch. It comes with a gold trim that not only looks great, but feels just as soft. There are even handles on the sides which make it a nicer touch and even makes moving the mattress that much easier.
Firmness, Support, and Comfort
The best part about the Loom and Leaf is that it comes in two different firmness’s that you are able to order. I ordered the Relaxed Firm. This is considered their perfect firmness model. This is considered a 6 out of 10, where you have 10 being the firmest. If you want something that is firmer, then you need the Firm, which is an 8. The fact that it comes with multiple firmness levels is a good thing, and something that you don’t actually see from a lot of other online mattress companies.
When it comes to the comfort of the mattress, it is just right. The fact is that most foam mattresses are just made up of about 3 inches of memory foam and put on a support base. The Loom and Leaf actually has 6 ½ inches of specialty gels and foams that has never been done before. With all of that said, more foam doesn’t always give you better comfort, but it will give you a great feeling and keeps you plenty cool.
Whenever I first laid down on the mattress, there was just an immediate softness. That was because of the quilted cover and light foam on top. Right after that, the support layers go to work and begin to react to your pressure. The only way to describe it is balancing. It doesn’t actually hug your body like memory foam does, but it contours your body and feels perfect in just about every sleeping position.
The best part that I found about the Loom and Leaf was the cooling aspect. There hasn’t been any expense spared when it comes to the cooling features and layers.
It has a top layer that has an inverted foam tip that increases air flow, the memory foam happens to be infused with a cooling gel that will absorb your heat and then disperses the heat, it comes with medical grade cooling gel as well as a breathable organic cotton cover.
When it comes to cooling, there isn’t another mattress out there that gives you cooling like the Loom and Leaf.
The support was great and I was able to sleep in all sorts of positions, but my go to is side sleeping and pillow hugging and I was supported in all of the positions as well as sleeping with a partner. There was great pressure relief across the board for this mattress.
The only real issue that I had was the pricing for the King and California King size mattresses. But everything from the Queen size mattress and down were quite inexpensive especially for a mattress that contained a medical grade gel layer. The price point works great for the type of materials used to create this mattress. Let’s talk pros and cons.
- Types of materials used
- Perfect for different sleeping positions
- Contours the body perfectly
- Keeps your body cool
- The mattress is quite heavy
- The price is a bit high
The Loom & Leaf mattress is a fraction priced luxury mattress that you will find online. It has been crafted with high quality materials, looks great, has awesome support and a cool feeling that you will not get from any other mattress.
