Naturepedic is a family-owned, Ohio-based mattress brand that made a name for itself in 2003 with eco-friendly, non-toxic crib mattresses and children’s beds. Today, the company has expanded to offer a range of natural sleeping solutions for children and adults alike.
Naturepedic’s bestseller, the EOS (Ergonomic Organic Sleep) Classic, is a fully customizable mattress made from 100% certified organic materials. You can swap out layers within the bed at any point as your sleeping needs change, making it possible to transform the EOS Classic from an extra firm mattress to a plush. Best of all, couples can configure each side of the bed independently for personalized comfort levels.

What’s In the Naturepedic EOS Classic Mattress?
While each EOS Classic contains a blend of domestic and imported materials, the mattress is fully assembled in the United States. It consists of five components:
- Organic cotton fabric and fill
Naturepedic uses only certified organic, U.S.-grown cotton as a healthier alternative to synthetic foams and fabrics.
- Organic wool batting
This natural material wicks away moisture and regulates temperature to keep you warm in winter and cool in summer. It’s also a fire retardant. Naturepedic uses only certified organic wood, ensuring the company supports the humane treatment of the sheep it’s sourced from.
- PLA layer
Made from non-GMO sugarcane, PLA is a high-performance fiber that benefits the EOS Classic by boosting resiliency and improving its moisture-wicking capabilities.
- Organic latex
Made from the sap of rubber trees, latex is an all-natural material known for its comfort and breathability. Latex mattresses conform to your body to relieve pressure points. All Naturepedic latex is GOTS certified to ensure its purity, eco-friendliness, and support of fair labor practices for the workers that harvest it.
Naturepedic offers a vegan version of the Classic EOS (view on Naturepedic), made without wool. You can also purchase a latex-free version with two layers of pocket coils!
- Glueless encased coils
The EOS Classic is made with individually wrapped coils that add bounce without compromising breathability or heat dissipation. A lack of glue or other synthetic adhesives ensures you won’t have to worry about toxins off-gassing.
About the EOS Classic Layers
These five materials are used to make up the five distinct layers within every EOS Classic mattress:
- Top quilt made from organic cotton fabric and wool batting
- 3-inch organic latex comfort layer (fully customizable—more on that later!)
- 8-inch encased coils
- Organic cotton batting
- Mattress encasement
EOS Classic Mattress Details
Out of the Box Experience
As of publication, EOS Classic beds are shipped unassembled in three large boxes. Expect these to be heavy and somewhat challenging to manage alone, as the company website suggests you plan on it taking two people 15 minutes to assemble each mattress.
One box will be labeled “Open this Box First” to keep things organized. Within it is the mattress encasement, which essentially acts as a large pillowcase. You’ll have the easiest time with assembly if you lay the encasement across the bedframe so you won’t have to move the final mattress. In other words, make sure you have a plan for your old bed before beginning!
Naturepedic supplies clear instructions for putting each layer of the mattress together, many of which have coordinating colors to keep you organized.
Note: If you get confused, watch this video for further assembly instructions.
Mattress Size and Quality
The EOS Classic boasts of European-inspired design features that make the bed as luxurious to touch and look at as it is to sleep on. Despite the brand’s commitment to quality materials for all its mattresses, it’s more of an entry-level model for Naturepedic. If you’re looking for the full luxury experience, consider the Halcyon series. Each mattress goes a little further in the indulgence department with materials like alpaca and cashmere for an extra sumptuous sleeping surface.
Sizing for the EOS Classic ranges from a twin to California King. The queen, king, and California King bed each comes with split layers, meaning you can customize the firmness of each side of the mattress in case sleeping partners have different preferences. Once the mattress is assembled, you won’t be able to feel the seam where the layers meet up.
Firmness and Motion Transfer
As stated above, a primary selling point for this mattress is the ability to customize its firmness level. This means that your personal experience of both its firmness and motion transfer depends entirely on how you stuff it. It also means that the mattress can be modified to suit different weights and sleep styles (side, back, or stomach).
At purchase, you can choose from one of five firmness levels for both the left and right sides of the mattress: extra-firm, firm, cushion-firm, medium, and plush. Don’t worry if you’re unsure what to choose—Naturepedic offers a 100-day trial period for your comfort layers with free exchanges (just pay return shipping) if you need to go in a different direction. Likewise, it’s always possible to purchase new comfort layers once you’re past the 90-day window.
Your chosen firmness level and personal body weight will affect the amount of sinkage and edge support in the mattress. But even so, the mattress’s latex and coil construction is considered to provide excellent support and pushback for all users. This means you shouldn’t feel the sensation of “rolling off” when sleeping near the edges.
Note: Users weighing 130 lbs and over will likely prefer to avoid the plush comfort layer and choose one of the firmer options for the extra support they offer.
Temperature and Comfort
Since the EOS Classic is made from all-natural materials, it aids temperature regulation while you sleep. The hybrid design of latex and wool works to wick away moisture so you stay cool. The tall coil support layer also creates space within the mattress for airflow, so heat doesn’t get trapped. This means you shouldn’t experience the sticky, sweaty feeling that’s common with mattresses made from synthetic foams.
Pricing, Warranty, Sleep Trial
At publication, pricing for the EOS Classic varies based on mattress size:
- Twin: $2,199
- Twin XL: $2,499
- Full: $3,199
- Queen: $3,499
- King: $4,299
- Cal King: $4,299
It’s possible to purchase the EOS Classic and all other Naturepedic mattresses through the company website as well as third-party mattress stores and showrooms across North America. It ships free across most of Canada and the continental United States.
The company offers White Glove delivery for an additional $375. This will include delivery, assembly, and moving the mattress into the room you want it. Removal and disposal of your old mattress is an additional $50.
Each adult mattress purchased directly through Naturepedic comes with a 100-day sleep trial, which includes a money-back guarantee. This lets you sleep on your new bed for over three months before deciding if you want to keep it for the long term. Just note the company requests you keep the mattress for at least 30 nights before initiating a return and that you are responsible for return shipping fees.
Your mattress is also covered by a 25-year limited warranty that protects you against manufacturing defects. For the first ten years, Naturepedic will repair or replace your mattress for free. Starting at year 11, the company offers repair and replacement credits beginning at 50% of the component cost and going down by 5% every year after.
Final Thoughts on the Naturepedic EOS
The Naturepedic EOS Classic mattress offers a lot of value for anyone looking for a non-toxic, customizable mattress. Despite that lack of traditional steel coils, you aren’t compromising on comfort or edge support, and the mattress won’t off-gas toxic chemicals or make you sleep hot and sweaty. Plus, the company offers options for latex-free and wool-free mattresses if you put in a special request.
This mattress wins major points from us for its customizable comfort layer, especially since you can adjust it per side of the bed. That’s a significant asset for couples who are at different weights from each other or who sleep in different positions.
You can try out this mattress relatively risk-free, thanks to the generous 100-day sleep trial and comfort layer exchange program. Just make sure you pay attention to the delivery date so you have someone available to help you with assembly and the removal of your old mattress.
