Hello,

This forum has been really helpful as we try to find the best queen mattress for us. Based on the information here, we've been focusing on latex.

We have been to Soma and Dormio, both of which were great. We really liked The Summit and The Chamberlain at Dormio. They are very similar. 6" firm, 2" soft, 2" soft (bottom to top). The Summit has the top 2" of soft as a topper, The Chamberlain has it included in the mattress.

However, after looking online, it looks like we could get almost the same thing from MFC for more than $1,600 less. This is calculated using a medium Maoli with a 3" soft topper.

There are two main differences we think: 1) Dormio also uses an inch of wool on their topper and 2) Dormio firm density is 90 while MFC is 85.

Are these significant differences? Will we even notice? Are we missing something? Happy to pay a bit more for in person shopping, trying the product, swapping layers, etc., but this seems like a big difference.

We're planning to go try the Dormio mattresses again to check for alignment and see what can be done on price, but wanted to get an impartial opinion in the meantime.

Thanks!

Hi csinc.

Welcome to our Mattress Forum. :) So glad the resources here have been useful!

Pricing is such a finnicky thing. Everything from shipping, interruptions in production, storage fees, employee wages, the electric bill, etc can factor into it not to mention sourcing materials, etc.

Dormio firm density is 90 while MFC is 85.


I don't think you'd notice the difference here at all. If the feel of the wool is a particular feature you're looking for, then you might notice and miss that. Wool can be quite expensive to source as well (again, could be part of the cost difference). But, if wool isn't a deal breaker, I think you might find yourself perfectly happy with the MFC model.

Of course, as you mentioned, the benefit of Dormio is you get to test in person and know with 100% guarantee that you like what you're getting. It's truly a toss up!

Hi csinc,

1) Dormio also uses an inch of wool on their topper


We offer the Maoli with a wool quilted organic cotton cover. If you are interested in this option, please contact us for details.

A great functional option is using a washable wool mattress protector over the Maoli Tencel cover. This unique mattress protector gives you the temperature and heat regulating properties of wool and the convenience of being machine washable. We believe this is a better option, because the organic cotton wool quilted covers that come with the mattresses can only be spot cleaned and can be ruined by a major spill or if an unfortunate event happens on the mattress.

I hope this helps you to make the choice that's right for you, please keep us posted on what you decide to do

All the best
