Unlike the average foam mattress, the Spindle all natural latex mattress keeps individuals cooler in the summer time and warmer in the cold, and overall affords consumers a very comfortable, even temperature sleep.

Does the Spindle Mattress Smell When New?

When you first receive your Spindle Mattress you may notice a very light, faint “new mattress” smell. 

The Spindle is immediately sealed after making, locking in some of the natural aromas, which accounts for the slight mattress smell when first opened.

Our research revealed a remarkably small percentage of consumers reported any issues with regard to odor.

Any comments reviewed indicated that the odor is minimal.

The materials employed in the Spindle mattress are all natural and certified by independent bodies such as Oeko-Tex.

Does it Require a Foundation?

A foundation is not absolutely necessary, but it is important that you support your new Spindle mattress properly.

Be certain that slats are placed at least 3” apart, and you place a rail under the slats from head to foot.

Also, be certain that the slats are made of a solid wood measuring at minimum, 3/4” thick.

For those consumers who already have a bed designed for a box spring, using the Spindle foundation is highly recommended.

What Type of Cover does it have?

The bottom panel of the cover is made up of a polyester fabric.
