Nolah is one of the most popular online mattress companies. It was launched in 2015, and it has grown to offer a total of 5 mattresses since then. The Nolah natural is an eco-friendly hybrid with a medium-firm feel. It is made of natural materials, including latex, wool, and cotton. These materials are good at wicking away moisture and enhancing airflow to keep you cool the entire night.
The Nolah natural is not the only latex hybrid mattress offered by the company. The mattress compares favorably to other latex-based mattresses, especially when it comes to motion isolation, edge support, pressure relief, and temperature control. It also rates high for ease of movement and sex owing to the springiness of the Talalay latex used to make it. In this Nolah Natural Review, we look at the mattress's specifications, pricing, and performance. Read on to see if it's what you are looking for.
The Nolah Natural is a pretty impressive mattress. It comes ready to sleep on. Once you unpack it and remove its plastic wrap, it will unroll itself onto the frame and expand within seconds. Unlike conventional mattresses, you will be able to tell immediately that it is a natural mattress because it lacks the chemical smell typical of new mattresses.
The mattress is also incredibly comfortable. Its wool barrier and organic cover give it a touch of luxury and superior comfort. You’d think you’re lying on a high-quality hotel mattress. It also offers excellent support with its 11-inch thick build. Here are more details on the mattress’ performance;
The Nolah Natural is about 6-7 on the firmness scale which results in a “luxury firm” feel. It is firm yet plush and cozy, thanks to the incredibly soft organic cotton cover and layer of wool. The layer of Talalay latex, firmer latex, and coils offer full-body support.
With its Talalay latex comfort system and a pocketed coil core, the Nolah natural mattress isolates motion. The latex absorbs the surface-level vibrations, and the coils work to prevent the spread of movement across the core.
On the flip side, the coils bounce and, when combined with the natural responsiveness of latex, can cause a mild motion transfer. This may be an issue for people who sleep with a restless partner.
Nolah focuses on producing cool-sleeping mattresses, and with the Nolah natural, they did a good job. It outranks most of its hybrid peers when it comes to temperature control. The organic cotton cover allows maximum air circulation in the mattress. The wool layer wicks away heat and moisture.
The natural Talalay latex comfort system doesn’t cling to the body like other materials. Besides being naturally breathable, the latex layer has holes for enhancing the mattress’ breathability. The pocketed coil support also has open spaces to allow continuous airflow.
The Nolah natural offers average pressure relief. Its Talalay latex comfort system cradles a sleeper’s curves adequately. Although it doesn’t comfort the body as closely as memory foam, the comfort system provides sufficient spinal support because it has less sinkage.
Moreover, the mattress’ core is engineered for spinal support. It has a higher coil density in its center which has been proven to provide 25% better support than conventional coils thus perfect for good spinal alignment. All considered the mattress’ pressure relief, together with the adequate support, make it a fantastic option for most sleepers, excluding anyone with sharper pressure points. If you have a sharper pressure point, then you might want to look elsewhere for better contouring.
Like other latex hybrids, the Nolah natural has got a good bounce that aids motion. It contributes to the mattress’ ease of movement. This can be both a plus and a downside. A downside because people who sleep with partners who move a lot may notice the vibrations more easily.
The Nolah natural owes its great performance to its solid construction. Here is what’s inside the mattress;
The Nolah natural lives up to its name with all-natural materials. It is made with wool, organic cotton cover, natural Talalay latex, and 8-inch Nolah’s coils. The 8-inch coils provide full-body support and give the mattress ease of movement.
The 2 layers of 3-inch Talalay latex provides a comfort system that cradles the sleeper and provides premium comfort. The different layers of wool increase the cooling effect of the mattress and act as a fire retardant.
The organic cotton cover is soft, breathable, and easy on the skin.
The Nolah natural mattress is verified by third-party certifications from GOTS, Oeko Tex, Cradle to Cradle, eco-INSTITUTE, and Rainforest Alliance. These certifications guarantee you the mattress’ safety. The materials used to make it are chemical-free, eco-friendly, and of the best quality.
Nolah provides a lifetime warranty for their mattress and a 120-night sleep trial. The warranty covers structural defects. If you are not satisfied with the mattress’ performance, you can return it for a full refund after a break-in period of 30 days.
The mattress is best suited for a side sleeper who weighs anything between 130 pounds and 230 pounds. Back sleepers under 230 pounds can also enjoy great comfort on the mattress. Stomach sleepers should look for a firmer option as they are likely to sink too far into the top layer of the mattress.
From our Nolah natural review, it is pretty clear that the mattress is one of the best organic hybrid options on the market. It offers superior comfort and full-body support with its solid build. The organic cotton cover is to die for. It is plush yet breathable, thus very friendly to the skin. Temperature control is where the mattress shines the most. Besides its breathable cover, you will be able to sleep cool because of the mattress cooling technology that comprises punctured holes in the Talalay latex layers and spaces in the coils used in its construction.
