I was thinking about doing this until I saw how much a King topper would cost me. Maybe Ill just need to swallow the cost.Kyle_87 wrote: ↑Another option that is more cost friendly is to make your own hybrid mattress . After research I purchased 2 2" latex foam layers from Sleep on Latex through Amazon.ca (one in firm and one medium).Prices have rocketed since I last saw but i believe you can get something similar from Natures Embrace Latex or Memory Foam Comfort in Canada. I layered these two latex foam on top of a basic spring mattress from IKEA the HAUGESUND model. Finally I wrapped this up with a waterproof mattress protector and a deep pocketed matttress fitted sheet from Wamsutta I got from bed bath and beyond.
This ended up being more economical than a full Latex mattress and offers several advantages. I can rotate the foam layers every year or so for spreading out the wear of sleeping on one side and if the bed ever sags due to the spring base I can replace it easily with another spring mattress with minimal cushioning.

Dormio is expensive and they only sell dunlop latex mattresses.

What is that inner casing you have? Did you buy that separately?Kyle_87 wrote: ↑Here's a photo of the mattress. You can see the top layer of two latex foams and the base which is coil spring mattress. The layers may not line up perfectly as you can see but for purpose of sleeping on its fine. Yes it ended up being pretty tall at 14 inch so I needed to pickup two new deep pocketed fitted sheets from bed bath and beyond to rotate between washes . Wamsutta® 525-Thread-Count PimaCott® Wrinkle Resistant Queen Fitted Sheet in White cost me around 32 plus tax each.
Queen haugsund firm -300 around 339 after tax
Sleep on latex Queen latex layers - 2 inch medium and 2 inch soft - 468 after tax and import from US fees.
Total mattess setup was around 870 all in for a Queen size.
Love the setup and would do it again for a King if we ever move out of a condo.

Overall I would say the mattress still tends to sleep a bit hotter as the 4 inches of foam latex retain heat. It does not sleep as hot as the 12 inch all foam mattress I had from Costco prior (novaform memory foam comfort deluxe . We are still using a winter goose down comforter so that maybe why lol.
There are most likely bed sheets that will help with temperature control as well as using a lighter summer weight duvet.

thanks I'll look into these 2 retailers as well. Agreed on Naturelle based on the the mattress underground forum it seems that their certifications are quite suspect and may not even be valid. Although with any certifications for these mattresses they would be hard to verify, this company in particular has an especially bad rep online.Kilarney2021 wrote: ↑ Dormio is expensive and they only sell dunlop latex mattresses.
We prefer talalay over dunlop after having both. However, talalay in Canada is hard to come by.
Zenhaven sells talalay mattresses in Canada. Our first for our son is really nice and is our favorite mattress. However, when we ordered one for ourselves there were serious quality issues as they changed manufacturer (company that assembles it) in Ontario.
Best options are Sleep EZ and Arizona Mattress in the US, Arizona is cheaper but both sell talalay mattresses. Sleep Ez is the more expensive of the two. You may have to make your own arrangements for shipping.
Whatever you do avoid Naturelle. Ours smelt funny for three years before we got rid of it and was not impressed by the owner.

Not really sure about this. Maybe for the toppers?

I went with SleepEZ because the talalay blend is 95% natural. The Arizona mattress is 90%. For sleepez you need to pay extra and make a special request to have all layers talalay otherwise they have 100% organic.ovechkin1 wrote: ↑ thanks I'll look into these 2 retailers as well.
