Beulah 1000 no-turn wool mattress is not like some other mattress for which we can immediately tell for whom they are suitable and whom they are not. However, after testing, we believe that it is the best for the following five groups of customers.
Needless to say that we use a mattress to fall asleep fast and have a restful night's sleep. This is certainly main reason why you are going to buy a new mattress. This mattress is an ideal pick for those who are looking for.
In this part of our review, we are going to break down five of the most important features.
Pocket springs are certainly the most popular type of spring system in recent years. This is not surprising because the invention of individual springs that are then wrapped in fabric solved many of the problems that traditional spring systems had.
Some of these problems are motion transfer, responsibility, bounce and noise. This mattress features 1000 individual pocket springs that provide personalised support on the entire sleep surface. That number of springs is enough for great performance, although premium mattresses often have 2000+ springs.
Also motion transfer is close to zero, so it is a great choice for couples. You won't hear squeaking in the middle of the night because the fabric absorbs sounds.
What sets this mattress apart from many others on the UK sleep market is the natural filling. If you cut it in half, you would find three wool layers. One supporting layer is located below and other one is above the pocket springs. There is one more, surface layer that is closest to you.
All three layers contain traceable British wool. You get an ID and a QR code that you can use to locate the farm where the wool in your mattress comes from. The two support layers are firmer, while the surface layer is softer. All three layers are highly breathable and fantastic in temperature regulation.
Cover is made of Merino wool and viscose. Viscose is a semi-synthetic material, type of rayon. Rayon is a fibre obtained from natural sources such as wood, so it is an ideal combination for this blend.
Merino wool is one of the most valued types of wool and it has numerous advantages, like insulation and it wicks moisture away. Viscose was added for durability so the cover is long-lasting. We don’t expect any signs of wear and tear to appear soon.
Frankly speaking, we don't understand the manufacturer's decision to put “No-Turn” in the name of the mattress. While it implies that you don't have to turn and twist it, which sounds like tedious actions, it's not great for durability.
We find that double sided mattresses are always a better option because you get two sleep surfaces instead of one. However, the overall quality of the Beulah 1000 no-turn mattress, as well as the durability tests we conducted, show that the service life most likely won’t be affected.
Have you ever heard that the body needs at least a month to get used to a new mattress? So you should check if the mattress you intend to buy comes with a trial period. You can try the Beulah 1000 no-turn mattress for 100 nights and determine whether it suits you or not. You can return it for free and get a full refund – a win-win situation.
Five-year warranty is an industry standard. While we have no doubt that it will last longer than that, mattresses in this price range should have a 7+ year warranty, in our opinion.
Beulah 1000 no-turn mattress is a natural, medium-firm, comfortable mattress suitable for side and back sleepers. Tension and support are ideal for these two sleep positions, while there is a chance that it will also be good for lightweight front sleepers, but generally it is not recommend for that sleep position. We also suggest combination sleepers to consider it.
The core of this mattress consists of 1000 individual hand-nested springs. Each spring acts independently and thus the mattress “follows” your body while you toss and turn in your sleep. You will not feel the motions of your partner, even if he or she is a restless sleeper, because the springs do not transfer motions.
Three wool layers surround the springs and make the mattress soft, comfortable and pressure relieving. Wool is also breathable, wicks moisture away and regulates body temperature, so Beulah 1000 is perfect for hot sleepers. Natural Merino/viscose blend cover has similar characteristics.
It is hand-tufted with wool pom-pom tufts, which affects the movement of fillings and extends service life. It comes with a 5-year warranty and a 100-night trial.
While testing the Beulah 1000 no-turn mattress, our test team did not experience any major problems with it. What comes to mind is the lack of firmness and support for front sleepers.
However, we think that it is not a problem that should be addressed. The only way you can improve firmness is by buying a firm mattress topper. As most mattress toppers are made of memory foam and similar polyester materials, then you will lose all that wool in the Beulah 1000 mattress provides. So there is no point in doing that.
If you are willing to spend a bit more to get 3000 pocket springs and two more natural layers, consider:
The Woolroom offers many other mattresses, wool duvets, bed linen and so on. We singled out the Hebridean 3000 Mattress as an alternative, since it has a similar construction. But it's also an upgrade in many ways!
This model has all the same layers as the Beulah 1000 no-turn mattress but with some higher numbers. For one, it has 3000 micro springs instead of 1000! It also has additional natural layers consisting of British wool, cashmere, and silk.
And these added layers and springs, of course, also add to the overall depth of the mattress. So, instead of 24 cm, this mattress is 28 cm deep. This means that the mattress as a whole is a lot more supportive and can handle heavier sleepers.
Plus, since it's still a Woolroom mattress, you still get the standard perks of a 5-year warranty and a 100-night trial. The only downside is that all these extra layers and springs are reflected in the price! So, be prepared to pay a little extra.
Natural materials are what makes Beulah 1000 no-turn mattress better than some other similar ones. This is certainly an excellent mattress overall, but we cannot say that it is the most supportive or something similar. What we can say is that it contains premium British wool. Today, when we are surrounded by polyester and various other materials that are treated with chemicals, it is necessary to buy sleep products that are free of harmful substances.
Procedures we use to evaluate products are simple, but they are well-planned. We check customer experiences and evaluations, examine product materials, and, of course, test the actual real-world performance. The following is how we approach it.
To make things more transparent, here is how we test the longevity and durability of a mattress:
Yes, it is. This mattress is exactly what you need if you are looking for an eco-friendly and sustainable product. Wool and steel are two of the few cleanest materials available. The entire production process is green. Since you can check the origin of the traceable wool, then you will know exactly all the procedures that are followed on the farm. In order for a farm to be a supplier of wool, it must operate in accordance with all regulations. The whole mattress can be recycled which means that it is eco-friendly from the first day to the last. Company offer old mattress recycling.
After using this mattress for more than a month, our overall impressions are very positive. It delivers everything we expect from a mattress of this type. It is comfortable, gentle on the hips and shoulders, very pleasant in both cold and warm rooms. Allergy sufferers from our test team did not experience even minor allergy symptoms. Edge support is just fine and motion isolation is great. We didn’t notice any major flaws.
Since it is not for front sleepers, our overall grade is 8.5 out of 10. And if you have any questions after reading our Beulah 1000 No-Turn Mattress review, ask away in the commets!
