A natural fibre which has been grown and harvested for the production of textiles and clothing for many centuries. This uniquely breathable and naturally absorbent filling is used in the construction of our mattresses due to its ability to naturally wick away moisture ensuring restful sleep.
Choose a custom mattress for your yacht, and drift softly to sleep wherever you are on the water
Whether you’re at home or away for the weekend, we believe you deserve to sleep in comfort when out on the water. So if you’re a seasoned yachtsman or you’re just getting into marine life, invest in a bespoke yacht mattress to help you relax at the end of a long day of sailing.
Yachts come in all shapes and sizes, and so do their beds. Here at The Odd Company, we handmake fully sprung mattresses with natural fillings to any size or shape to perfectly fit the bed of your yacht. All of our custom yacht mattresses are made using traditional crafting methods and only the finest-quality natural materials designed to support your body and make your sleep as restful as possible.
Here are just some of the areas in which we can tailor a yacht mattress, especially for you…
An Odd size or shape?
The walls of yacht cabins tend to follow the curve of the hull, which can often mean your bed is an unusual shape, with curved sides or rounded and cut-off corners. We can make a bespoke yacht mattress to any length, width or shape to ensure a perfect fit.
Only ever fully sprung…
Our bespoke yacht mattresses are always fully sprung using the highest quality steel springs. At The Odd Company we only ever make fully sprung mattresses, as in our view no other system offers your body a comparable level of support and comfort while you sleep.
Since yacht cabins tend to be more compact spaces, a shallower than standard mattress is normally required. At The Odd Company we can make a pocket sprung mattress with deep layers of cotton fillings, as shallow as 8″ (20cm). A shallow yacht mattress of this depth will help make your cabin seem more open and spacious while still providing an excellent night’s sleep.
We use natural fillings whenever we can. Not only are natural materials often hypoallergenic, they are also sustainable, and can be widely recycled when your bespoke mattress eventually needs replacing.
Synthetic materials like memory foam, petroleum-based rubber and latex are non-porous, making them great materials for the production of insulation, wellington boots and birthday balloons, but which should be kept out of the bedroom as much as possible. They are hot and unhygienic, breathe poorly, retain moisture and hold in heat. They also contain glues and solvents, which of course, evaporate creating an odour. That being said, if we were to find breathable, sustainable, man-made fibres which performed better than the fillings listed below for our bespoke mattresses we would of course consider using them: we just haven’t found any yet…
Because all of our mattresses use natural fillings, they’re hypoallergenic, non-irritable, and breathable. We use a cotton ticking to upholster our bespoke mattresses, for a most luxurious and comfortable finish.
A natural material which has played an important role in the British economy since the medieval period, and whose trade was once described as the ‘jewel in the crown of the realm’. Wool brings a number of benefits to a mattress. Unlike synthetic fibres which tend to trap and hold moisture and heat, wool’s structural composition makes it great at regulating temperature. Wool, like cotton, is also incredibly breathable, wicking away moisture and ensuring you stay cosy during winter months and cool during summer ones. It is thanks to these properties that we use it as a filling in some of our highest specification mattresses.
For hundreds of years, horsehair has been an important filling in mattresses of the highest specification. Before the interior and later pocket spring system were invented, each strand of curled hair acted like a tiny spring, creating support and elasticity within the mattress. We continue to use horsehair today for this exact same reason – think of it as providing an extra layer of natural micro-spring close to the sleeping surface, to complement the pocket sprung system found in the mattress core. Additionally the fluted structure which each strand forms channels moisture and heat away from the body while you sleep, replacing it with cooler, fresher air over the course of the night.
The coat of the Kashmir goat is considered one of the most luxurious wools available, its fine fibres – half the width of sheep’s wool – make it incredibly soft and springy to the touch and therefore one of the finest fillings that can be used in your mattress.
The goats take their name from the Kashmir region in the Indian subcontinent in which they were first found, an environment which is subject to extreme fluctuations in temperature. Cashmere like other wools is therefore an excellent regulator of heat. It is best to think of cashmere as a natural, silent air conditioning unit built into your bed,. The structure of each hair is such that it directs heat along the fibre to be released into the cooler environment. When it is cold, cashmere’s crimp – the natural waviness of each hair, traps large volumes of air between its fibres, creating an insulation layer which holds heat.
