The Spindle Blog

This Saturday only. Absolutely nothing will be on sale!  All of our mattresses will be at their normal prices that make sense.

But, our showroom in Acton, MA will be open from 10AM to 2PM on Saturday, the 11th of April.

I mentioned in a previous post that my wife and I put our new mattress together about 2 weeks ago. Here I’ll give some observations about transitioning to latex from an innerspring mattress.

Prior to our Spindle we were on a 10 year old, very well-constructed, firm Gardner innerspring mattress with a latex pillow top. While we had no thoughts of getting a new mattress, ours was beginning to show its age. Or maybe it was me who was showing his age.

Our mattresses are not medical devices and we have no magic elixirs. We do however sell awesome natural latex mattresses at rock-bottom prices that hold their own against any other comparable mattress on the market, in spite of proprietary “relief” others want you to buy.

Yesterday, the NY Times ran a story about different kinds of pillows and ways they may affect your sleep. Follow the link, and remember: It's a mattress, not a provider of miracles.

Spindle must be doing something right because people are taking notice. We’ve begun to work with influential bloggers and journalists who are interested in writing about our mattresses. Nest for Less grabbed our attention as a fresh voice targeted at cost conscious DIY families. These customers are smart, creative and not intimidated by having to do a little bit of work to attain remarkable results at significant savings. Our products can hold their own against any other mattress in the all-latex category. If you like latex chances are you’ll love a Spindle.

Thanks Erin for sharing your Spindle experience. You can read her review here.

One of the perks of working for Spindle is that every employee gets a free mattress. I’ve been working with the company since September and trying out beds in our showroom, but I only took delivery of my Abscond mattress recently. My wife and I put it together during last week’s blizzard and I thought our customers might find my firsthand experience helpful.

I'm writing this from just outside Boston on the day after a pretty big snowstorm. We got hit with a solid 20" of snow at our house, drifting to nearly four feet in places. There was tons of wind. Nantucket got hit so hard that power, cable, phone and cable all went out. Ferry service was stopped. There was no way that anyone could have flown in. The island was literally closed off from the rest of the world, though emergency services had some kind of radio or satellite phones to communicate with the Governor and other officials who were hunkered down in a bunker. Worcester, just west of us, got 34" of the white stuff. I-90 was closed its entire length of the state, about 150 miles. The whole experience was kind of cool.

In September, we began having our latex poured as a three inch block rather than cutting it from a six-inch block like we had done in the past. We chose to make the change for multiple reasons. One of the reasons is we saw an improvement in the durability and performance. But, pouring it as a three inch block requires more latex to be used. So, our latex prices have gone up.

Unfortunately, we could not absorb the cost increase any longer. While we want to always make an affordable latex mattress, we chose to improve our natural latex mattress.

So, take the plunge now and save some money or hold tight and find out what we have in store for you.

What I mean by it depends is what is the makeup of the cover, quilting foam, FR solution or fiber used in the cover on top of the latex. Most latex is constructed with air holes sometimes call pincore. This allows air to travel through the latex allowing surface heat to dissipate from the sleeper’s skin surface. Generally, most urethane foams particularly memory foam will trap heat to a greater degree than latex. There is some latex sold without pincore holes in it, in this case these mattresses will sleep hotter.

Return policies vary from none to infinity, making this subject confusing at times. Of course there are usually restrictions put on unlimited returns, however there is another side to the debate. I recently was at large national price club store after the holidays and witnessed a lady returning a Christmas tree. Wow I thought, is there something defective with the Christmas tree or was she just taking advantage of the store’s no questions asked return policy. As a shopper

If you are an avid reader of our blog, you may remember this post a few weeks ago.

Well, my dream came true. We received a threatening email. A person told us that they will be posting around the interwebs that we are a sleazy company. In the end, he would be setting out to personally destroy my company and livelihood.

(I assume that it was a threat. That is the funny thing about words and other forms of communication; it is easy to infer something, but it may not have been the person’s motive. But, when you read it with your biases, you come away with a different opinion. This is one of the struggles with electronic communication. You do not hear tone and there is no way to clarify understanding. It is a one way communication. And, while we asked for a return phone call and even gave him my personal cell number, we were not contacted unfortunately.)
