Winkbeds has expanded their offering of mattresses to include Hybrid, Foam and now an Eco-friendly option called the Eco Cloud. This is an all-natural mattress made with steel springs, natural latex, wool and organic cotton. There are many natural mattresses on the market with similar construction but the Eco Cloud has a feel all its own. In keeping with the Winkbeds tradition, it offers a more luxurious feel where you get more cradling than the competitors. But you will pay a bit more for the premium. A queen size currently retails for $1,799 which is considerably more than the budget-friendly Awara at $1,199.
Overview of the Winkbed Eco Cloud
Here’s a video overview of the Eco Cloud where you can see how it performs and peek inside the mattress to see how it is constructed.
Construction of the Winkbeds Eco Cloud
Here are the construction details as listed on their website along with a picture (ab0ve) to show you the actual layers.
ORGANIC COTTON COVER & NEW ZEALAND WOOL
A soft quilt cover made from 100% organic cotton and sustainable New Zealand wool ensure you sleep cool, clean and dry.
4″ TALALAY LATEX COMFORT LAYER
5 ZONE INDIVIDUALLY WRAPPED INNERSPRING SUPPORT SYSTEM
EXTRA-EDGE™ ANTI-SAG SUPPORT SYSTEM
Our proprietary innerspring support core is firmer and more supportive along the edges, allowing you to sleep edge to edge without any sag.
How Much Does the Winkbed Eco Cloud Cost?
Here are the prices of the mattress as of this writing and before any discounts.
My Eco Cloud Findings
I found this mattress to be just a bit on the softer end of the spectrum compared to others with similar construction. I attribute that mostly to the 4 inch Talalay latex layer at the top. Here you can see how much sinkage is produced with my 14 lb. bowling ball.
Here’s another picture showing me pushing into the mattress with a good amount of force. I just want to illustrate how much give you can achieve with the mattress.
As I mentioned in the video, this mattress doesn’t retain much heat and that’s typical of a natural mattress like this one. If you are coming from a traditional spring mattress, you shouldn’t notice a difference in sleeping hotter.
I’m glad Winkbeds incorporated Talalay latex into the top layer as it gives it a nice plush feel without too much sinkage. This mattress is bouncy without a lot of motion transfer. They use a proprietary spring system with zones across the mattress to even you out and provide support for your hips making this a great choice for any type of sleeper, even stomach sleepers. The perimeter coils are firmer so you also get great edge support and won’t feel like you are going to roll off the mattress.
Finally, Winkbeds did a great job with the fabric on this mattress. It’s not stitched too tight like others I have tried. That means there is more material to allow the latex and springs to work. Some mattresses that are stitched too tight don’t offer as good of contouring as this one.
My Eco Cloud Recommendation
The Eco Cloud costs more than some of the competing brands but to me, that’s not a deal-breaker. For a few hundred dollars more you get a mattress that is made in the USA, crafted in a factory in Wisconsin by people that have been at their jobs for decades and really know their craft. The end result is a quality mattress that will hold up over time.
This mattress comes with a 120-night trial where you can sleep on it at home for 120 nights and if you don’t like it, for whatever reason, it’s a free return. They also offer a lifetime warranty which means as long as you own the mattress, Winkbeds will replace it if it is found to be defective. They also have a comfort exchange where you can exchange the mattress after the trial expires and buy a different Winkbed at 50% off.
The Eco Cloud is a great choice for people who are looking for a quality natural mattress that is Made in the USA with a firmness that will appeal to most sleepers.
