Although they aren’t cheap, both the Adagio and Woolly Naturepedic mattress toppers offer an organic, non-toxic sleeping solution that will appeal to anyone who wants to know precisely what’s in their bedding.

Naturepedic is a mattresses and bedding company based in Chagrin Falls, Ohio. The brand is known for its certified organic, non-toxic sleeping supplies. It got its start in 2003 when founder Barry Cik failed to find a waterproof organic crib mattress to use for his grandchild. Knowing that other parents would be interested in the same, Cik and his two sons set out to create a range of non-toxic, organic mattresses and bedding materials for babies and adults.
Today, Naturepedic has made a name for itself in the natural materials sleeping space and has branched out beyond mattresses to sell sheets, bedframes, protector pads, and more. Despite its nationwide prominence, everything is still made in the United States at Naturepedic’s GOTS-certified factory.
The brand prioritizes removing toxic chemicals from bedding that come standard from other suppliers. Everything it sells is GOTS Certified, MADE SAFE certified, Greenguard certified, and ZERO Toxics Certified. The company also avoids using chlorine bleaching and toxic dyes to protect the safety of the workers that process it.
Here, we’ll look closer at the brand’s two mattress toppers—Adagio and Woolly—to help you determine whether they are worth purchasing.
- Thinner at 2″
- More affordable
- GOLS Latex and small amount of wool
- Non-toxic, organic, free of forever chemicals
- More cushion at 3″ of pillow top
- Non-toxic, organic, free of forever chemicals
Highlights: The Adagio mattress topper consists of 2” of smooth, organic latex encased in stretch-knit fabric. It’s designed to add extra plushness to your bed, reminiscent of sleeping on a cloud, while relieving painful pressure points. Even better, the latex core allows for airflow to keep you cool all night.
Naturepedic recommends you pair this mattress topper with one of their firm, cushion-firm, or medium mattresses.
The Adagio consists of just three materials:
Organic latex: Made from the sap of the rubber tree, all Naturepedic latex is GOLS certified and sourced from reputable suppliers that ensure product purity and fair labor practices. This spongey, supportive material is the core of the mattress topper.
Organic cotton fabric: As the purest form of this natural material, organic cotton offers a healthier alternative to plastic-based synthetic fabrics. Naturepedic’s organic cotton is free of perfluorinated compounds (PFAS) as well as anti-bacterial treatments and flame retardants. It makes up the stretch-knit fabric cover for the Adagio.
Organic wool: A small amount of wool is used with the Adagio’s covering. It enhances its softness, moisture-wicking abilities, and fire retardancy.
According to Naturepedic, the best way to wash the Adagio is spot cleaning. You can use rubbing alcohol or hydrogen peroxide on the soiled area and allow it to soak in to sanitize the immediate area and directly below the topper’s surface. Then, gently scrub the wet spot with a damp, soapy cloth to remove any dirt and residue. It’s best to let the topper fully dry before putting any bedding back on it to reduce the risk of mold growth. Ideally, you should let it dry in direct sunlight.
At publication, the Adagio was offered at the following price points directly from Naturepedic.
- Twin: $499
- Twin XL: $549
- Full: $649
- Queen: $749
- King/Cal King: $849
The company offers free shipping within three days of ordering and includes a 100-day money-back guarantee. The topper also qualifies for Naturepedic’s ten-year warranty against manufacturing defects.
Customer reviews on the Naturepedic website and third-party retailers highlight that most buyers are happy with the Adagio.
Many shared that the three-inch thick latex was perfect for people with sensitive bodies that struggled to get comfortable on standard mattresses. However, others thought the material compressed too easily and didn’t offer much support or pressure relief.
One user noted that that mattress topper actually made them sweat more at night (despite its purported cooling properties). However, they attributed this more to being menopausal and using a nonbreathable mattress protector than an issue with the topper itself.
In a few cases, customers mentioned that the topper put off a strong latex smell that bothered them, especially if they slept on their stomachs. Finally, some users wished it came with a removable, washable cover because they felt spot cleaning was inconvenient.
Highlights: Naturepedic’s Woolly mattress topper consists of 3″ of organic wool for a cozy pillowtop feel on any mattress. This natural material will purportedly wick away moisture so you sleep cool and comfortably. The two-inch wool fill contains a blend of organic wool with natural alpaca and cashmere. This wool batting is then covered by an organic cotton sateen fabric finish.
Like the Adagio, the Woolly is recommended to be paired with firm, cushion-firm, or medium mattresses. It’s designed to add an extra level of plushness to your bed without changing the overall support level of the mattress underneath.
The Woolly is made from an organic wool blend encased in an organic cotton cover.
Organic cotton fabric: this natural fiber is woven into a flossy sateen fabric that’s free of perfluorinated compounds (PFAS), anti-bacterial treatments, and flame retardants.
Organic wool batting: The Woolly contains a blend of 70% organic sheep wool, 25% alpaca, and 5% cashmere. When used in bedding, it wicks away moisture to better regulate your temperature while acting as a natural fire retardant. Wool has a natural crimp that ensures the mattresses topper has some bounce and support.
Like the Adagio, your best option for cleaning the Woolly is spot-treating with gentle cleansers such as rubbing alcohol or hydrogen peroxide. The outer cover can’t be removed for separate washing.
You can purchase the Woolly directly from Naturepedic at the following prices:
- Twin: $749
- Twin XL: $799
- Full: $899
- Queen: $999
- King/Cal King: $1,199
Shipping is included.
Like the Adagio, it comes with a 100-night sleep trial and a ten-year limited warranty against manufacturing defects.
Naturepedic customers have a variety of opinions on the Woolly mattress topper. Some shared that this mattress accessory made going to bed their favorite part of the day, thanks to how supportive and cozy it felt. Many mentioned that it was a cost-effective way to update an old, firm mattress to make it more comfortable. In a few cases, reviewers noted that it was the only topper they’d found that didn’t trigger their allergies when sleeping on it.
However, some offered less glowing reports. A few reviewers found the topper wasn’t as pillowy as expected and that it lost its fluff after only a few weeks of use. Others found the wool scent overwhelming and irritating when attempting to sleep.
Final Verdict: Are Naturepedic Mattress Toppers Worth It?
In the natural bedding space, Naturepedic mattresses and toppers deserve the attention they receive. The company sticks to its commitment of using only non-toxic materials, which means you won’t be left with any surprises upon purchase.
That being said, these mattress toppers aren’t the ideal solution for everyone. Despite claims that they are odor-free and naturally cooling, customer reviews indicate that at least a few buyers thought otherwise. And, considering the pricing of these covers, you might get more value from spending slightly more and investing in an entirely new mattress instead.
However, thanks to Naturepedic’s generous return policy, we think these mattress toppers are worth the risk. Try one out for 100 days, and rest (pun intended!) assured that you’ll get your money back if it’s not your ideal sleeping surface in the end.
