it’s better to sleep naturally...
it’s better to sleep naturally...At herdy®sleep we believe natural materials are best. A full fleece lies at the heart of our luxury wool mattresses, responsibly sourced from a local flock of Herdwick sheep. Wool’s naturally soft and springy fibres make it the ideal choice for a natural mattress filling. Not only does Herdwick wool spring back into shape to provide a soft, even surface, it also naturally regulates heat, keeping you cool in summer, and warm in winter.
Our locally sourced wool is blended with cotton and cashmere to create a premium mattress filling. By using an entire wool fleece in every mattress, the herdy®sleep mattress helps you to sleep naturally, every night.
health benefitsIt can be hard to relax and get a good night’s sleep, especially if your mattress is well used or made of non-breathable materials. Herdy®sleep’s naturally breathable mattress keeps you cool and fresh all year round. Being filled with hypo-allergenic and anti-bacterial wool, a herdy®sleep mattress will stay fresh, clean, and help you achieve a healthy, natural sleep.
Packing thousands of advanced pocket springs into each mattress ensures that the sleep surface fits the contours of your body, encouraging a healthy sleeping position. By offering a premium, anti-bacterial, and hypo-allergenic mattress that breathes with you, herdy®sleep helps you to sleep naturally.
The natural wool filling, sheared from a local flock of Herdwick sheep in the Lake District, makes a herdy®sleep mattresses a fantastic natural alternative to other mattresses. As well as offering superior temperature regulation and hypo-allergenic properties, wool is a natural and sustainable material that we can source responsibly for years to come.
The natural elasticity of a sheep’s fleece means that the fibres will bounce back into shape time and time again, and because the fabric we’ve developed is naturally flame retardant, there is no need for chemical treatment of the sleeping surface in the manufacturing process.
spring technologyNatural materials are just part of what makes a herdy®sleep mattress special. Our bouncy pocket springs are an important chapter in this story too.
We’ve layered over 6,000 of our specially developed herdy®sleep pocket springs into each kingsize mattress, creating an even and supportive surface with fewer pressure points on your body. This guarantees unparalleled levels of support for your whole body, encouraging healthy, natural sleep in cloud-like comfort.
hand made artisan skills
hand made artisan skillsIt's not only what’s on the inside that counts. Our premium quality, natural pocket sprung mattresses are encased within a traditionally side-stitched, hand tufted and tape-edged, chemical-free, sleep surface cover. Herdy®sleep is the only mattress that can offer the quality and luxury of a traditionally handmade mattress delivered as a ‘bed-in-a-box’.
Each stage is completed by expert craftspeople who hand tuft our diamond-quilted mattresses to make sure everything is sandwiched securely together and topped with a woolly toggle.
Finally, hand taping is the most technical skill required in making a mattress. Our expert mattress makers hand tape the mattress surface and border together to ensure the best quality fit, guaranteeing 10 years of healthy, natural sleep.

being responsibleComing from the Lake District, we know just how precious our countryside and farmers are. That’s why we’re passionate about making our herdy®sleep mattresses in the UK, using British wool and traditional skills to create a mattress that is as good for the planet as it is to sleep on.
By sourcing our fleece from a flock of local Herdwick sheep, we’re doing our bit to support Britain’s farmers, and the rural economy, so when you lie back on your herdy®sleep mattress you can count both the sheep and the farmers that you’ve helped to support.
fair trade wool
fair trade woolWe’re very proud to do our bit to support local farmers, and responsible farming in the Lake District. Herdy®sleep was born in the Lakes, so it felt only right to make a pocket sprung mattress that draws on the wealth of skills, natural materials, and the heritage of our home.
The Lake District is home to the iconic Herdwick sheep, a breed famed for its hardy nature and friendly, smiley face. We’ve used a whole herdwick fleece in every herdy®sleep mattress.. By sourcing our wool locally and paying farmers a fair price, we can guarantee the best quality wool whilst at the same time reducing our carbon footprint, and supporting the rural economy. It takes over a year to grow the fleece for a herdy®sleep mattress, but it’s more than worth the wait.
UK madeWe’re proud with the work we’ve done so far to keep our carbon footprint low. Using locally grown fleece and responsibly sourced materials is a great first step, and when it comes to making your herdy®sleep mattress, we’ve kept things close to home. Making every herdy®sleep mattress in the UK means fewer trucks on the road, fewer miles driven, and a brighter future for everybody.
Our mattress makers hand-stitch every mattress in Yorkshire, and produce almost every component in-house, here in the UK. From creating the pocket springs and padding, to weaving our special herdy®sleep chemical-free fabric covers , we’re making our mattresses as green and naturally as we can.

meet the makers
meet the makersInside the herdy®sleep workshop, the most skilled people in the industry create each mattress from start to finish. The spring designers design and shape every pocket spring, drawing the wire from steel rods themselves.
Meanwhile the weavers create the unique chemical-free mattress fabric, which is naturally flame retardant and breathable. Combining these with the wool filling produced by the blenders, the tufters and stitchers secure the mattress filling and construct the mattress by hand to ensure quality and comfort for years to come.
Every step of the process is constantly assessed by the lab team, who make sure that every element of every mattress is perfect. It’s the quality craftsmanship offered by the team, and insistence upon perfection that makes every handmade herdy®sleep mattress the perfect way to wake up with a smile.
