Why we love the Teddy from TFS
The Teddy Organic Wool Mattress is entirely organic and a great sleep surface for lighter adults and children.
It offers impressive support for body temperature control, muscle relaxation and deep REM sleep, thanks to the natural qualities of wool.
What we don’t love
The Teddy is quite a bit heavier than the 3- and 5-inch Shikibuton options from TFS. The twin-size weighs in at 54 lb. and the Cali King is 90 lb.
Wool also compresses more easily than cotton and PLA, meaning you’ll need to take care to rotate the Teddy regularly, especially in the first few weeks of use. It’s also not ideal as a mattress for every night use and is better suited for occasional use. The Teddy is also too soft for stomach-sleepers, most back-sleepers, and heavier adults or teens.
The Teddy is also very expensive, though often on sale.
