Watch the video below to see how the Silk & Snow Mattress performed when put to the test in the Sleep Foundation Lab.
The Silk & Snow Organic Mattress has a medium feel, rating 6 on the 10-point firmness scale. This puts it on the firmer end of the average range that most sleepers prefer.
A soft-to-the-touch GOTS-certified organic cotton cover wraps around the mattress. This material is breathable so that heat can escape and cool air can flow through. Next, a layer of New Zealand Joma wool batting is quilted into the cover. This quilted layer also contains .75 inches of latex. Wool’s temperature-regulating properties help keep the surface cool when it’s warm out, and warm when temperatures drop. Strong moisture-wicking helps the sleeper stay drier. The wool batting also serves as a natural fire retardant.
The Silk & Snow Organic Mattress’s comfort layer consists of 1.75 inches of GOLS-certified organic Dunlop latex, which is durable, resilient, and breathable. Made from the sap of rubber trees, this material is natural and sustainable. Many sleepers compare sleeping on a latex comfort layer to a floating sensation due to the way it redistributes their weight over a wider area.
Pocketed coils make up the support core. Since each coil is encased, motion transfer is limited. The layer is zoned with firmer coils near the middle of the bed and softer coils on the outer thirds to provide targeted support and promote proper spinal alignment. All four edges of the bed use firmer coils to bolster the structure while preventing the perimeter from sagging under a sleeper’s weight.
The Silk & Snow Organic Mattress is constructed of three distinct layers, beginning with a quilted layer of wool batting and latex, followed by a layer of organic Dunlop latex. The core consists of zoned pocketed coils, and an organic cotton cover encases all the components. Latex measurements may vary slightly, with some mattresses containing more than 2.5 inches total.

Side sleepers often experience the sharpest pressure points because the hips and shoulders are traditionally wider than the rest of the body, therefore pressing harder against the mattress. A bed that adjusts to these curves to distribute the weight more evenly can help a side sleeper rest more comfortably.
The Silk & Snow Organic Mattress’ wool batting cushions the hips and shoulders while the latex molds to their shape to redistribute weight. Since the coil layer is zoned, a side sleeper’s hips and shoulders should be able to sink in more than their lower back to promote proper spinal alignment.
As a medium firm model, the Silk & Snow Organic Mattress is likely to be best suited to side sleepers who weigh between 130 and 230 pounds. It should cradle their hips and shoulders without letting them sink in excessively for the right mixture of pressure relief and spinal support. This mattress is also likely to ease pressure for those who weigh more than 230 pounds, though some of these individuals could feel slightly less supported. Most side sleepers who weigh under 130 pounds won’t sink in enough for optimal pressure relief.
Back sleeping usually keeps the spine close to its natural alignment, so most who prefer this position just need a mattress that will let their hips dip in a bit without sagging. The Silk & Snow Organic Mattress’ latex comfort layer gently cradles the hips while remaining supportive. The zoned coil layer further reinforces this balance of contouring and support with softer coils in the lower third of the bed and firmer coils in the middle to encourage healthy spinal alignment.
Most back sleepers should receive ample support regardless of their weight. However, the medium firm feel may be closest to ideal for back sleepers who weigh under 230 pounds. Some who weigh over 230 pounds might sink in more around their hips, which could put slightly more pressure on their lumbar region.
Stomach sleeping can contribute to a variety of aches and pains because this position often puts pressure on the neck and spine. A mattress can minimize this discomfort by supporting the sleeper’s midsection to prevent excessive sagging.
Since the Silk & Snow Organic Mattress’s coil layer is zoned, the bed provides more targeted support that may be beneficial for stomach sleepers, particularly those who weigh less than 230 pounds. Individuals who weigh over 230 pounds might still sink in slightly around their midsections, which could put pressure on their spines.

The Silk & Snow Organic Mattress ships to locations within the United States and Canada. It is sold through the brand’s website and at the Silk & Snow showroom in Toronto.
The Silk & Snow Organic Mattress ships free within the 48 contiguous United States and the 10 Canadian provinces. Non-refundable shipping fees will apply to orders to Alaska, Hawaii, and the Canadian territories.
While Silk & Snow ships its mattresses as soon as possible, transit times vary depending on the destination. Orders within the contiguous United States and most of Canada typically arrive 2 to 7 business days after they’re shipped. Deliveries to Alaska, Hawaii, and the Canadian territories usually arrive within 7 to 9 business days of shipment.
The company works with several courier partners, including UPS, USPS, Canada Post, and Loomis Express. No signature is required, and the package can be left at the door if the owner isn’t home.
Each mattress is compressed in plastic and packaged in a box for shipment. Silk & Snow recommends you have someone help you move the packaged bed into your room of choice. Then, you can remove it from the box, place it on the frame, carefully cut and remove the plastic layer, and allow the mattress to decompress. While owners can sleep on the bed right away, it may take up to 72 hours to fully expand.
White Glove delivery and old mattress removal are not currently available with the Silk & Snow Organic Mattress.
Customers can try the Silk & Snow Organic Mattress at home for 100 nights and return it for a full refund of the purchase price if it’s not ideal for them. This trial policy includes a 30-night required break-in period to give your body time to adjust to the mattress. If you decide to return the bed during the eligible window, Silk & Snow will have one of its charitable partners pick it up from your home. This policy allows one mattress return per household.
A 15-year partially prorated limited warranty protects the Silk & Snow Organic Mattress against lasting indentations of more than 2 inches and physical flaws that cause the foam to split or crack.
Should an eligible defect arise, Silk & Snow will either repair or replace the mattress at its discretion. The owner covers shipping charges to return the bed.
During the first 10 years of the warranty, repairs and replacements come at no additional charge to the owner. Between years 11 and 15, owners will be assessed 75% of the original purchase price for repairs and/or replacements.
This policy applies to the original owner who bought the bed directly from Silk & Snow. The mattress must still have law tags attached and have been used on a proper foundation. Damage resulting from abuse or mishandling does not qualify for coverage.
