Crafted from the same Plein-Air French sheep's wool, organic cotton and natural Talalay latex found in all Berkeley Ergonomics mattresses. Filled with 500 grams of wool per square metre, the organic pillow top will breathe and regulate temperature and humidity exceptionally well.
Many consumers have had negative experiences with expensive pillow-top mattresses that sag well before expected. Those mattresses use poor quality polyurethane foam, effectively degrading the durability of the mattress. Our pillow top features durable 100% natural Talalay latex cushioning that wears well over time and independently from your mattress.
Our pillow tops are independent of the mattress. This allows the topper to be added to your mattress after purchase should you want additional softness and pressure relief. It can be removed if you want to change the feel and since the Talalay latex cushioning wears independently of your mattress, it can be replaced separately at any time.

Why and when to add a topper
A high-quality topper is a perfect addition to an existing mattress that is in good condition and still provides adequate support. Toppers are designed to enhance comfort and pressure relief.
Toppers are also commonly added to a brand new mattress. A luxury mattress topper crafted from natural materials can improve even the very best mattresses. Adding a topper to a new mattress will also extend the life of the mattress, as the topper will take a good portion of the wear and tear.
It is important to remember that a topper will not improve the support of a worn-out mattress, nor will it eliminate sagging issues. In fact, placing a topper on a sagging mattress is not something we recommend - you'll just make the sagging that much more noticeable. If you find yourself in this situation it is best to consider a new mattress.

General Availability Advice
The Mattress & Sleep Company is a family owned and operated Canadian retailer who specializes in high-quality bedding, bath and mattresses from Canada, Europe and the USA. Our vast selection makes it impossible to stock everything. For this reason, our website does not offer real-time inventory availability as many of our products are made to order.
Please read the availability details above as we do make an effort to draw attention to products which are typically in stock in our Calgary, Edmonton and Sherwood Park stores and warehouses. For example, popular Ergomotion adjustable beds and Berkeley Ergonomics mattresses are regularly stocked in Twin XL, Queen and King.
