The multi-award-winning Little Green Sheep Twist Mattress has been beautifully handmade for your precious newborn baby, in the most natural way. Using only the highest quality natural materials, the mattress core has been designed to provide little ones with the natural comfort they need for the best nights sleep. Featuring a firm supportive core for your baby as recommended by safe sleep experts, the mattress offers the ultimate in natural comfort, with a durable yet supportive layer of latex for even support and weight distribution as they grow from a baby, to toddler and beyond.
No chemicals or fire retardant sprays are used in the mattresses, giving you peace of mind that your baby is sleeping in a pure and natural environment. The mattresses are breathable and insulating to help regulate your baby's body temperature. The wool used in the mattresses naturally absorbs and disperses moisture away, creating a clean, dry environment that’s resistant to dust mites and bacteria growth.
Note: The manufacturer recommends The Little Green Sheep Waterproof Mattress Protector, a breathable waterproof protector to create an anti-dust mite layer and protect your baby's mattress from any wetness. Hoovering your mattress can help reduce the risk of dust mites. If the mattress is soiled, lightly sponge the cover with a mild detergent and air until dry.
What goes into a Natural Latex Mattress?
The mattress core is created from Coconut fibres blended together with Natural Latex to act as thousands of tiny springs, providing your baby with the firm support recommended by safe sleep experts, whilst reducing individual pressure points and the risk of dipping.
The core is then wrapped in a layer of natural Wool. Wool brings an abundance of benefits to your little sleeper, it's naturally Hypo-allergenic and temperature regulating with excellent breathability. It’s also a natural defence against dust mites and a natural fire retardant, meaning that our mattresses pass the UK and European Fire Regulation Tests without the need of any chemical fire retardant sprays.
Holding all these layers together is a luxury Herringbone cotton cover. The cover helps aid the breathability of the mattress and is super soft for baby’s delicate skin, so they can sleep comfortably time and time again.

According to Babycentre, newborns tend to sleep between 8-18 hours a day on average. With this much time spent snoozing, it makes sense to invest in a sturdy yet comfortable mattress that will offer your little one the support they need. Mattresses with dual firmness are a popular option, and offer long-lasting, customizable support as your little one grows.
The firm side provides optimal support for babies up to 12 months, as recommend by safe sleep experts. When baby becomes a playful toddler, you can simply twist the mattress for a more supple, comfy and durable support that will last for years to come.

Is the Twist mattress completely natural?
As part of our promise at the little Green Sheep, we make the utmost effort to ensure all of our products contain as many natural ingredients as possible. The Twist mattress features three layers for optimum firmness; breathable wool, coconut coir and latex. The latex layer is composed of natural latex (60%), derived from the hevea tree and synthetic latex (40%), which is infused with natural mineral graphite to provide flame retardant properties - it's this graphite that gives the layer it's grey tone. All home products for sale in the United Kingdom must meet strict requirements for fire safety, and so the necessary inclusion of these added ingredients is a preventative measure that provides a safe sleep environment for your child. All Twist mattresses feature a natural soft cotton cover.
What is graphite?
A naturally occurring form of crystalline carbon, graphite is a native element that has applications across multiple industries.
Why do The Little Green Sheep use graphite in their mattresses?
Natural latex (derived from the Hevea tree) is blended with the naturally occurring mineral graphite to provide a comfy, progressive support that makes for a natural alternative to foam. When exposed to heat, the graphite in our mattresses expands and forms an intumescent layer to protect the material surface. This helps slow down the spread of fire, and counteracts the formation of toxic gases and smoke.
The guarantee covers any manufacturing defect over a 1 year period (5 year period for Dual-Sided Twist Mattress) from date of delivery, on all cot and cot bed mattresses only.

The mattress should always be used with a mattress protector, turned once every 3 months and kept clean and dry; for more information, see the The Little Green Sheep mattress care guide.
