Silk vs cashmere?

David Bodkin asked 21st August 2017

Hi,I\’m just wondering what the difference between silk and cashmere is in the role of a mattress? Does one tend to be softer/more comfortable/more luxurious (and therefore more expensive) than the other or are they much of a muchness when both are used with wool and cotton?Thank you.

Hi David,


Thank you for your question.


The only mattress that we make that contains silk and cashmere is our Origins Pocket 1500. In this instance the cashmere is in the cover and the silk is combined with a wool pad which is just under the cover.  To be honest they are much of a muchness when combined with the wool.


With this mattress you slightly sink into the mattress but the overall comfort is a medium so not too soft nor too firm.



We hope this assists but please do not hesitate to contact the office should you require any further information on 0161 437 4419. We are open Monday to Friday 8am to 8pm and Saturday and Sunday 10am to 4pm.


Kind Regards, Julie
