If you are looking for a pocket sprung mattress that has a really high number of spring for the ultimate in support, but that also has anti bed bug properties as well as luxurious natural fillings, then this mattress is just for you. This Shire ecoSnug Mattress is one of our favourite mattresses here at Wedo Beds and we can't recommend it highly enough.
It contains a massive 3000 pocket springs, a huge number and enough for the mattress to give you unparalleled support. If you are heavier than average, are looking for a mattress for you and a partner, or simply just want to experience the best support possible then this is the mattress for you. Each of the springs is housed in its own fabric pocket which allows them all to work independently of each other, giving tailored support to every part of your body.
The fillings include polyester and various natural fillings which compliment each other perfectly, some adding a softer element and some a more rugged, durable element. These fillings include:
- Natural wool - providing softness and regulating moisture
- Mohair - lightweight and luxurious to enhance softness
- Horsehair - durable, hardwearing and highly resilient
- Silk - simultaneously warming and cooling, naturally hypoallergenic and offering superior comfort
- Cashmere - light and soft yet strong, it is also natural insulator
These natural fillings and the cover are all treated with Ecoshield, an insect repellent which is completely harmless to humans and actually smells good as well. Its main active ingredient is 100% natural eucalyptus oil which not only has a subtle but pleasant smell, but is also known to help relieve sinus infections, bronchitis, flu and the common cold. The active ingredient is held in microcapsules which are released it over a long period of time by only breaking open when the mattress is in use. This is an excellent meeting of science and nature and will ensure that this mattress and all the others in this range provide possibly the healthiest sleeping environment possible.
Aside from the sumptuous natural fillings and the pocket springs this mattress also features vents which allow air to circulate freely through the mattress, stopping moisture from gathering and causing unpleasant smells. The mattress is also hand tufted, which is a process that involves threading lengths of material through the mattress which then keep the various layers in place and stop the mattress from losing its shape. Flag stitched handles complete the mattress and make it easy to move and turn.
- perfect mattress
Tried loads of different options over the years but think Ive stumbled on the ideal mattress for me. Just the right amount of support, a faint eucalyptus smell which is nice but not invasive and that soft but firmish feel when you lie back on it. I'm a fairly big bloke so think going for a mattress with a significantly higher number of springs has made the difference.

- 3000 pocket springs is amazing
if you are looking for a mattress which has more support then I'd get this one, 3000 springs makes this so much more comfortable than anything else Ive had before. All the natural fillings are soft and comfortable and it has completely eradicated the bed bug problem I had previously.
