Responsible business

Sustainable partnership

The result of this partnership is the creation of the Herdysleep mattress; a traditional, pocket sprung mattress, handmade in the heart of Yorkshire. The natural wool used in the filling provides a commercially viable, long-term use for Herdwick wool, helping to preserve and protect a sustainable future for the Lake District’s upland fell farming community. By buying 100% of the wool from a co-operative of farms at a fairly traded rate, it means reduced overheads for the farmer and a better return for them.
When you buy a Herdysleep product you’re supporting British manufacturing, upland fell farming, and the Lake District’s Herdwick sheep.

"Now this is a supremely comfortable mattress. First things first: this mattress is handmade using traditional techniques, so not of the bed-in-a-box variety. Instead, the Herdy Sleep mattress uses a fully sustainable and 100 per cent recyclable spring system offering 7,000 pocket springs, a thousand more than the previous version. "

“Perfect for regulating the body’s temperature”

“The most luxurious rolled mattress…”
