The Little Green Sheep Natural Cot Mattress, multiple sizes
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.
The smaller Natural Mattresses are designed for cribs specifically for infants aged 0-6 months. They do not include the additional latex layer and wool layer.
The Dual-Sided Twist Mattresses (with *) are designed for bigger cribs designed to accommodate cribs from birth to toddlerhood and beyond. These mattresses come with a dual-sided feature, with a latex layer and wool layer on each side. The wool layer is specifically designed for infants up to 12 months. When baby becomes a playful toddler, you can simply twist the mattress (to the latex side) for a more supple, comfy and durable support that will last for years to come.
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.
Important points to note before buying:
1. The mattress is packed in a plastic bag that is not vacuum sealed.
2. The mattress is not fully sealed to allow air to circulate.
3. The mattress is likely to have specks of cotton husk on the cover, especially as the cotton is unbleached.

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.
