With over one hundred years in the mattress industry, Hypnos has become one of the most trusted and premium sleep brands across the UK. We’re going to take you through some of the best aspects of Hypnos, alongside some of their best mattresses too…
Royal Warrants have been issued for centuries, namely to tradespeople who supply goods to Royals. With this, it demonstrates the highest standards of excellence, quality and service. Receiving their first Royal Warrant in 1929, Hypnos has also received a Royal Warrant under Queen Elizabeth II under the ‘bedding and upholstery manufacturers’ category. Hypnos are the only bed maker to actively supply all of the Royal residences, which speaks volumes for the quality of mattresses and bedding that they produce. Finally, Hypnos was also awarded the Queen’s Award for Enterprise: Sustainable Development 2020.
Amazingly, Hypnos has been carbon neutral since 2011. Due to this, they have been awarded the Planet Mark Carbon Neutral award, and have been labelled the first bed manufacturer in the world to become carbon neutral. Offsetting 9,550 tonnes of carbon on their journey, Hypnos has come to incorporate 100% natural and sustainable fibres in their mattresses, which are fully recyclable.
Hypnos has partnered with the UK’s largest farm and foods standards scheme, Red Tractor, striving to source wool that is sustainable and ethically sourced. This partnership ensures that all wool can be traced back to assured farms, which is essential when eight sheep fleeces can be used in a single Hypnos mattress. Every aspect of the supply chain coincides with these values, from collection, combing and washing of the wool.
Firstly, if you suffer from hayfever, you may want to weigh up the pros and cons of getting a Hypnos mattress. Every Hypnos mattress uses an array of natural fillings from cotton, lambs and alpaca wool, to cashmere and mohair. None of these natural fillings is hypoallergenic, so if you’re a severe allergy sufferer, you may want to find another option using polyester or white fillings.
This aside, there’s a sleeping solution for every kind of sleeper. Featuring mattress tensions from softer to extra firm, they also have sizes from small single to super king including zip and link options too. So, whether you’re a side, back or front sleeper of a lighter, average or heavier stature, one of Hypnos’ mattresses will be right for the way your preferred sleeping position. However, with this being said, the combination of the quality of materials used and craftsmanship that goes into creating a Hypnos mattress makes for an extremely premium mattress. Their sleeping solutions offer exemplary properties beyond many other manufacturers and it results in a higher price tag than many other mattresses. So unless you have a larger budget to spend on a new sleeping solution, you may want to consider a more affordable brand than Hypnos.
