Hi lpad007,

I'm not sure if you are looking for a component mattress or you are looking to build your own DIY mattress with separate layers that you design and put together yourself.

If you are looking for a component latex mattress then the mattress shopping tutorial includes a link to a list of the members here that sell mattresses online (in the optional online step) and many of them also make latex and latex hybrid mattresses that use different types and blends of latex that have a range of different designs, options, features, return and exchange policies, and prices.

If you are looking to design and build your own mattress out of separate components and a separate cover that you purchase individually then the first place I would start is by reading option 3 in post #15 here and the posts it links to (and option #1 and #2 as well) so that you have more realistic expectations and that you are comfortable with the learning curve, uncertainty, trial and error, or in some cases the higher costs that may be involved in the DIY process. While it can certainly be a rewarding project ... the best approach to a DIY mattress is a "spirit of adventure" where what you learn and the satisfaction that comes from the process itself is more important than any cost savings you may realize (which may or may not happen).

If you are looking for something locally then if you let me know your city or zip code I'd be happy to let you know about the better options or possibilities I'm aware of in your area.

Or maybe bottom layers memory foam or something that doesn't have bad chemicals


Memory foam is a comfort material not a support material so you won't find a mattress that uses memory foam in the bottom layers.

Post #2 here and the more detailed posts and information it links to also have more information about safe, natural, organic, "chemical free", and "green" mattresses and mattress materials that can help you sort through some of the marketing information and terminology that you will encounter in the industry and can help you differentiate between them and answer "how safe is safe enough for me" so you can decide on the types of materials you are most comfortable having in your mattress. These types of issues are complex and are generally specific to each person and their individual sensitivities, circumstances, criteria, and lifestyle choices.

Looking to spent around 1000$ to 1200$


Your budget is probably too low for most all latex mattresses ... particularly if you are looking for certified organic latex ... but some of the lower budget latex and latex hybrids I'm aware of are listed in posts #3 and #4 here .

Hi lpad007,

Outside of the information I linked in my last reply ... I would always keep in mind that the first "rule" of mattress shopping (or mattress design and construction) is that the only way to know for certain whether any mattress design or combination of materials is suitable for you is based on your own personal testing or sleeping experience and that there isn't a "formula" or "theory" that can predict which mattress or combination of materials will be best for you based only on specs (either yours or a mattress) or "theory at a distance" (see mattress firmness/comfort levels in post #2 here ).

There is also more about the different ways to choose the most suitable mattress (either locally or online) and how to identify and minimize the risks involved in each of them in post #2 here .

I live in mass Westfield zip 01085


The better options and possibilities I'm aware of in and around the Springfield, MA area (subject to the guidelines here ) are listed in post #4 here .

Spindle mattresses uses 100% natural continuous pour Dunlop made by Mountaintop Foam.

Mountaintop foam makes a range of different blends of latex that vary from 100% synthetic to 100% natural ( see here ) and all of them are Oeko-Tex certified. It wouldn't even be possible for a material to be both 100% natural and 100% synthetic at the same time.

Spindle uses the 100% natural version of Mountaintop's latex and they are absolutely "telling the truth" on their website. They are very knowledgeable and transparent about all the materials they use in their mattress.

I would be very careful about jumping to these types of conclusions based on a complete misunderstanding of the information you are reading.

Hi lpad007,

You certainly made a great quality/value choice ... and congratulations on your new mattress :)

I hope you have the chance to share your thoughts and feedback when you've received it.

No ... the Mountaintop Foam continuous pour Dunlop latex layers don't have any glue seams.

What do you suggest for protector something natural or organic for spill water,juice,.....thank you


There is more about the different types of mattress protectors and the pros and cons of each of them in post #89 here that can help you decide which of them would be the best match for the criteria that are most important to you (water resistance, how they affect the feel of a mattress, temperature regulation, and cost).

I keep all the forum reference posts up to date on a regular basis when any new information comes to light. The protector post was last edited on Feb, 25th of this year.

Yes we still have it and use it and it's still in relatively good condition (with some staining).
