At Wedo Mattresses we are pleased to be able to recommend the Shire ecoSound Mattress to anyone who is looking for an excellent quality pocket sprung mattress with a high number of springs and one that utilises an anti bed bug treatment which contains natural eucalyptus oil. It makes for a pleasant smelling, healthy and extremely comfortable mattress which is very reasonably priced considering.
The mattress contains 2000 pocket springs, a number which means it has considerable support, suitable for heavier single sleepers, couples or anyone who just wants exceptional support. Each spring sits inside its own fabric pocket, allowing them all to act independently of each other, giving more tailored support to each part of your body.
The fillings include polyester and other completely natural materials, which are one of the best aspects of the mattress, few others in this price range have such a range of complimentary materials. These include:
- Cashmere - a naturally insulating, light and soft material that is deceptively strong
- Silk - both cooling and warming depending on the temperature, hypoallergenic and offering superior comfort
- Horsehair - a highly resilient, strong and durable material
- Mohair - luxurious lightweight to enhance softness
- Natural wool - moisture regulating and soft
These natural fillings and the cover are all treated with Ecoshield, an insect repellent which is completely harmless to humans and actually smells good as well. Its main active ingredient is 100% natural eucalyptus oil which not only has a subtle but pleasant smell, but is also known to help relieve sinus infections, bronchitis, flu and the common cold. The active ingredient is held in microcapsules which are released it over a long period of time by only breaking open when the mattress is in use. This is an excellent meeting of science and nature and will ensure that this mattress and all the others in this range provide possibly thehealthiest sleeping environment possible.
As well as the fantastic materials used, the mattress also has four flag stitch handles to make moving and turning the mattress easy and vents that allow air to circulate and keep the mattress fresh. The mattress is then hand tufted to increase its durability, these tufts are lengths of fabric that go through the mattress to keep all the fillings in place and to help maintain the shape of the mattress.
I did not see anything like this range on the internet. I liked them but was worried that I had nothing to compare them to. I called only-mattresses to find out why and they said that they are the first to stock these. I have only had it a week but all seems fine. It's a very comfortable mattress.
