The Difference Between Memory Foam & Horsehair MattressesThe first is Memory foam. It works by reacting to the heat of your body. As it warms it becomes softer and moulds to the shape of your body. Once you get out of bed, it cools and returns to it’s normal shape. It was invented by NASA and has become widely used in cheaper mattresses.

Using Alpaca In Mattresses
Alpaca is a domesticated species that resembles a small llama in appearance. They are kept in herds that graze on the level heights of the Andes of southern Peru, northern Bolivia, Ecuador, and northern Chile at high altitude. Alpacas are considerably smaller than llamas, and bred specifically for their fibre.
Why We Use Wool In MattressesWool is the fibre obtained from sheep and is completely natural. Every year sheep will produce a new fleece, making wool a renewable fibre source. When a natural wool fibre is disposed of in soil, it takes a very short time to break down, whereas most synthetics are extremely slow to degrade.
Horsehair in a luxury mattress
If you are not familiar with the use of natural fibres and specifically horsehair in a mattress then I think you are going to find this blog really interesting.
Glencraft has been using natural fibres since we were founded in 1843. Nature has an incredible way of providing us with the natural fibres that help keep us warm when it is cold and cool when it’s hot. Choosing a mattress that utilises horsehair within it’s layering, will help create a micro-climate within your mattress. But getting horsehair to the point that it is ready to help create the ultimate nights sleep, starts long before your mattress is hand delivered to your door.
