Call it what you want: 100% All Natural, Organic, Botanical, Eco-Friendly, Sustainable, Vegan latex, these latex slabs are as pure it gets. All the latex used in the foam is sourced from 100% natural sources, namely hevea brasiliensis trees in Sri Lanka.
Our organic natural latex rubber is fantastic at absorbing pressure points and has great rebound. With 5 firmnesses to choose from, it is the most luxurious natural fill to sleep on. Read The Banana Test post if you need guidance picking from five firmness to arrange in any order you choose. The post on bed frames will be helpful when buying a new frame or foundation to support your latex. To test out the firmnesses, stop by if you are in the Lafayette, IN or Minneapolis area.
Our Dunlop processed organic latex is durable and long lasting. Its twenty to thirty year lifespan is enabled by the 96% of latex in the finished product. That latex can long outlast the air the Talalay produced latex uses to create its foam.
Our firmness specifications are:
Soft: 11-17 ILD, D55
Medium: 18-23 ILD, D65
Firm: 24-29 ILD, D75
Extra Firm: 30-37 ILD or D85
Hard: 38-45 ILD or D95
ILD = Indentation Load Deflection
To make a Eastern King Split (where each side gets to have its own firmness), select two Twin XL for the size of each latex slab. A Full (double) is as wide as two cribs (toddler) side by side, though 21″ longer. To create a 1/2 Queen, either buy a full Queen and add one cutting fee to your cart for two 1/2 Queen slices of the same firmness or visit our Custom Cut page if you want just one 1/2 Queen.
Since no California King molds are made for the baking of the latex, the molds are poured only in Eastern King sizes, so a 4″ piece from the side of an Eastern King will be glued to the bottom of the California King. The glue is a a water-based adhesive which carries UL Greenguard/Greenguard Gold certification. You may request the 4″ piece to not be glued, but it will have a difficult time not buckling or shifting inside the ticking as it is so narrow.
To purchase a 6″ core, put two 3″ selections of the same firmness in your cart, proceed to the checkout page and in the small box labeled “Order Notes”, leave us the following note: “Please leave these slabs together as one 6″ core and do not split them.” There is no price difference between two 3″ slabs and one 6″ core.
Don’t be hesitant to take advantage of our Buy and Try Period. Even after sleeping on it, you can swap out firmnesses until you get the right comfort. Your short term used pieces will end up in our Clearance section. Our 15 year warranty is so simple, you won’t find another one like it.
