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.
