Natural Latex or Wool?

Here are a few suggestions when choosing organic bedding for a healthy sleep. When it comes to organic mattresses, the choice is personal, based on how firm you like your sleeping surface. Latex offers the most support and truly forms to your body without the pressure points of springs. Organic cotton mattresses and wool blends are firm and supportive and also wick moisture away from the body.

1. Sleeptek's Hevea natural rubber mattress has an all-natural rubber core, layers of quilted silk and wool, and an organic cotton cover that zips apart for easy care. From $2,328 for a twin to $4,257 for a king set (with slat foundation). Available through Green Sleep (888) 413-4442.

2. Handcrafted with 100 percent organic cotton and Pure Grow Wool, the Natural Bedroom by Vivetique Quilted Mattress is hypoallergenic and contains no dyes or chemicals. The family-owned manufacturer gets rave reviews for its customer service. $1,082 for a twin set; $2,082 for a king set (with box spring). Available through Home Environment (877) 251-4905.
