What Sets Silk & Snow Apart

Foam or Hybrid Coil?

Foam or hybrid coil? We understand that everyone is unique and we don’t limit you to just one choice of a mattress. We offer an all foam or hybrid coil mattress design that has the same great feel but built for different body types and needs.

4 Lbs Means Quality

We use an industry leading 4 lb memory foam, which is one of the highest quality foams available in Canada and provides superior pressure point relief and unmatched durability. Over time, foam that is less dense will have a much shorter useful life and will soften faster over time.

Innovative Cover Design

Keeping your mattress clean doesn’t have to be a chore. Our mattress is designed with a 360˚ zipper that allows you to easily remove the top panel for laundering. The Silk & Snow mattress cover is also made with an advanced textile, infused with a pure natural silver that prevents the growth of bacteria.

Foam Quality
When considering buying a memory foam mattress, it is important to consider the density of each layer of foam. At a very minimum, you want to make sure the retailer is transparent and can stand by the product that they are trying to market. But more importantly, density can also be important to get an idea of value of the mattress vs the price you are paying.

The density of foam is measured by the weight of a 12-inch cube of memory foam and is usually expressed in lbs per square foot. The same type of foam can have different densities as a result of the materials used in the foam construction, and the quantity of materials (i.e. polymers) present rather than air present in the product. Generally speaking, it will be cheaper to produce the same type of foam in lower density because they require less material. Foam mattresses, with usage, tends to soften over time and inevitably will not provide the same support that was once there. For the same type of foam, a higher density is usually more durable and will maintain the same level of pressure point relief and support over a longer period of time.

Silk & Snow is fully transparent in the foam densities used in the construction of our mattresses. In the S&S Mattress, we use a 2-inch layer of 4 lb gel memory foam, which is higher than many of the leading Canadian mattress retailers.

The Douglas mattress contains 2 inches of ecoLight® cooling gel foam with a foam density of 2.5 lbs.

When Silk & Snow previously contacted Endy customer support in Sept 2017, we were advised that the foam density of the top layer was also 2.5 lbs. However, when we contacted Endy customer support more recently, Endy no longer provided a definitive answer to the density of top layer.
Cover Design
Endy Mattress Cover

The Endy cover is made with a grey upholstery grade fabric with a white polyester fabric that is diamond patterned. You can locate the zipper at the bottom of the mattress and remove the mattress cover for washing. You may want ask a friend to help, as the mattress can be a bit heavy to lift in order to remove the cover. The Endy mattress cover is machine washable in warm water (40°C) and it is recommended that you wash the Endy cover alone to avoid colour transfer.

Douglas Mattress Cover

The Douglas mattress is designed with a red zipper running along the side of the mattress, to allow for the top half of the cover to be removed for washing. According to their website, only the top cover is washable and it is recommended that it is washed in cool or warm water on a delicate setting.

Silk & Snow Cover

All Silk & Snow mattress covers are made with an advanced textile, infused with a pure natural silver that prevents the growth of bacteria.

The S&S Mattress is designed with a 360˚ zipper for easy removal of the top of the mattress cover for laundering. Most other mattress covers are designed where the zipper can only be accessed at the bottom of the mattress, and the entire cover of the mattress needs to be removed in order to be machine washed.
Coil Hybrid or Foam?
Memory foam mattresses have become very common due to the popularization of mattress-in-a-box retailers, as the technology to compress a memory foam mattress was much more readily available. However, there are still a number of people who enjoy the traditional feel and breathability of a hybrid spring or coil mattress.

Endy and Douglas both offer a traditional 3-layer foam mattress construction. Endy does not use a memory foam in any of the 3 layers of its mattress.

Silk & Snow offers you a choice of either an all foam mattress and a hybrid pocketed coil mattress that is also compressed into a smaller compact box for ease of shipping and moving.


What Is A Memory Foam Mattress?

Although it might feel like memory foam is a recent technology, but it was first discovered in the 1970s by NASA. This ultra comfortable material was originally developed for airplane seats and eventually became a crucial component of higher end mattresses due its ability to relieve aching joints.

What Is A Hybrid Mattress?

A hybrid mattress, usually means that the mattress is a combination an innerspring base with multiple layers of foam on the upper layers. The comfort or transition layers are usually made with at one memory foam layer while the core of the mattress is usually made of pocketed coils or springs.

While the coils might make a mattress a bit costlier, coils do offer some extra benefits. Because of the rigidity of coils, they are better able to support heavier weights than a memory foam mattress would. Air also moves more freely throughout the coils, which makes hybrid mattresses more breathable and ideal for individuals who sleep hotter. Finally, more recent innovations such as a pocketed coil system makes coils more durable, ensuring that mattresses will not sag as quickly over time.
Edge Support
Edge support is the amount of firmness and rigidity a mattress provides around the edges. Many individuals who like to sit and sleep near the edge of the mattress value additional edge support, as it means there is less sagging and the feeling of falling off the edge of the mattress. Although edge support does not affect the feel of a mattress, many people feel that it is important simply due to familiarity.

Additional edge support is less common in foam mattresses such as the Endy mattress or Douglas mattress. Silk & Snow offers firm edge support in the S&S Hybrid mattress model. The S&S Hybrid is designed with a foam perimeter that encloses the pocket coil unit in the mattress. The foam perimeter is made with an ultra-firm foam that provides rigidity and structure for the entire mattress that is commonly found in higher-end mattresses.
