the shetland superb mattress by vi-spring; handmade like no other

vi-spring shetland superb

The Shetland Superb mattress is generously upholstered in pure hand teased real Shetland wool with softly needled British fleece wool. A covering of worsted wool fabric and woolen tufts finishes the mattress. The Shetland partners with the Sovereign base.

Each and every Vi-Spring bed is made individually, to order, by hand in a factory by skilled master craftsmen near Plymouth, England. It's an uncompromising approach. But it is the only way to create a bed that is not just supremely, sumptuously comfortable, but that fits you like a glove. So while your Vi-Spring bed is luxurious, it is not a luxury. It becomes something you can rely on to bring you precious, restful sleep, for years and years to come.

If you've never slept like that before, it can be a life-changing experience.

Which is, in the end, the only way to make the perfect bed for you.The copious volumes of fine cotton, pure lambswool and long-stranded horsehair (not to mention cashmere, mohair and silk in their finest beds) are all of the highest quality they can find. And every Vi-Spring bed is as close to completely natural as they can make it. It’s the only way to make a bed that breathes as a bed should.
